EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ - The Denver Broncos came into Super Bowl 48 touting the top-ranked offense in the league, but they were shut down at every turn by Seattle's dominant defense, as the Seahawks won in a rout 43-8 on Sunday night.

In a season in which Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning threw 55 touchdown passes during the regular season, the NFL MVP threw just one in the game, and also threw two interceptions, including a pick 6 that put the Seahawks up 22-0.

The Seahawks got off to the best start possible, as they picked up a safety on the first play from scrimmage to take an immediate 2-0 start, and it just got better from there.

By halftime, the Seahawks led 22-0, and after Percy Harvin returned the opening kickoff of the second half back for a touchdown, the rout was on.

The Super Bowl title is the first in Seahawks franchise history (1-1), and the Broncos fall to 2-5 in the big game.
