The Seahawks won their first Super Bowl title Sunday night in overpowering fashion, punishing Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos 43-8. That relentless defense, the NFL’s stingiest, never let the five-time MVP get going, disarming the highest-scoring offense in league history.
Seattle linebacker Malcolm Smith returned an interception of Peyton Manning 69 yards for a touchdown and later recovered a fumble, earning Super Bowl MVP honors in the Seahawks’ 43-8 victory over the Denver Broncos on Sunday night.

It’s the final game of the NFL season, yet it may the most intriguing matchup of the year well beyond the fact that it’s the league’s championship game and the biggest stage in the sport. While the two title games featured contestants very similar to one another, that is not the case in Super Bowl 48.
This game is truly a matchup of strength versus strength and goes well beyond the No. 1 offense and the No. 1 defense. In fact, it’s also a matchup of weakness versus weakness. Want proof?
The Seattle Seahawks don’t have a defensive weakness, per se, but the AFC Champions are as close to flawless as it gets in football in terms of offensive efficiency, which may be a significant problem for the ‘Hawks come Sunday.
With Seattle having just a handful of players listed on the injury report and with Denver in the double digits, things are looking good for the ‘Hawks.
