If there was one word to describe that game, it would be domination.
The Seahawks absolutely leveled the Broncos 43-8 as their defense carried their team to the championship. They forced 4 turnovers against the best offense in the league, including 2 interceptions against Peyton Manning.
Seattle got great pressure on Peyton Manning and had strong tackling which set the tone early. The Broncos had some flukes on their own too, such as the onside kick or the punt from the 39 yard line (I still can’t figure that one out).
Overall, it was an amazing game for Seattle and a total blunder for Denver. Was it all Peyton Manning’s fault? No, but he didn’t exactly perform on the biggest stage either. We’ll hold all comments on his legacy, but we’re sure that many will be barking that he can’t play in the playoffs.
Is this the start of a dynasty for the Seattle Seahawks? It’s too early to tell, but it certainly looks like it. This team looks like a much better version of the 2001 Patriots. If the story follows, then the Seahawks have many more championships by the time they’re done.
What an incredible end to an incredible season. Congratulations to Pete Carroll, Russell Wilson, Malcolm Smith, the Legion of Boom, and the rest of the Seahawks for winning Super Bowl XLVIII.
We’ll see you in the offseason!
