Super Bowl XLVIII Highlights: Seahawks 43 – Broncos 8

02/02/2014

Malcolm SmithEAST RUTHERFORD, NJ – With a suffocating defense and an efficient offense, the Seattle Seahawks destroyed the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII 43-8 to secure the first championship in franchise history.

Linebacker Malcolm Smith was named the game’s MVP. Smith intercepted a Peyton Manning pass and returned it for a touchdown in the first half and recovered a Demaryius Thomas fumble later in the game. Smith also had seven tackles in the game.

Russell Wilson was 18 of 25 for 206 yards and two touchdowns in the victory. Peyton Manning completed 34 of 49 passes for 280 yards but had two interceptions to go with the Broncos’ lone touchdown of the game.

Percy Harvin returned the opening kickoff of the second half for a touchdown that effectively put the game out of reach at 29-0.

Kevin Harlan and Boomer Esiason called the action on WestwoodOne Sports.
