Before we say anything, a big congratulation goes out to the city of Seattle for winning their first Men’s championship in nearly 35 years.
With the Super Sonics relocating to Oklahoma City a few years ago, the cities been in disarray with professional sports over the last few decades.

Last night, Super Bowl XLVIII had all of the story-lines and buzzes to make for one of the greatest games in the history of the NFL. Examining the game, we had the league’s best offense in the Denver Broncos, battling arguably one of the greatest defenses we’ve ever witnessed with the Seattle Seahawks.
More on the story and video highlights of Super Bowl XLVIII below.
Following the opening kickoff, the Broncos would start the game deep at the own 14 yard line. The very first play of last night’s game set the tone pretty much for the game; which the Broncos came off intimidated by the Seahawks botching their first snap, resulting in a safety. Denver was immediately discouraged by the opening safety, but would still manage to limit the Seahawks to only two more field goals in the first quarter.

Peyton Manning would have a rare three and out on his next drive that would follow-up with his first interception of the game in a no huddle offense. Marshawn Lynch would take advantage of Denver’s mistake and cap of the drive with the first touchdown of the game. On the very next ensuing possession, Peyton Manning would have some success only down 15; before he threw his 2nd pick of the game, that resulted in a touchdown return from Malcolm Smith.
The Broncos would head into the half shockingly scoreless with hopes for a potential 3rd quarter comeback. Those plans however were virtually over on the opening kickoff, when Percy Harvin came up big for the Seahakws returning an 87 yard TD. to put the clamps on this game up 29-0. Late in the third quarter, Seattle would score once again from the heroics of Russell Wilson, before Peyton Manning and the Broncos scored their very first points of the entire game before the 4th quarter. To begin the final quarter, Seattle would score one last time with Russell Wilson connecting with Doug Baldwin for a 10-yard touchdown pass.

Denver remained calm keeping their composure as the Vince Lombardi Trophy was brought out before the 5-minute mark hit. Peyton Manning now goes 1-3 all time and there has been recent rumors with the 37-year-old quarterback contemplating retirement. We’re not putting all of the blame on him, but the Seattle defense dictated the duration of this game. Seattle now wins their first ever Super Bowl, with Pete Carroll becoming one of the rare coaches to win big games both professional and collegiality.

This was one of the more memorable seasons in quite some memory for the NFL, which we’ll see you in May for the draft, then in September when the season starts.
