The Seahawks jumped-out to a 22-0 lead after linebacker Malcolm Smith intercepted Peyton Manning as he was hit by defensive end Cliff Avril it took it to the house for six.
For his efforts, Smith was named the Super Bowl Most Valuable Player after he finished with that pick-six to go with nine tackles and a pass-deflection.
The Hawks defense, know as the “Legion of Boom”, suffocated the Broncos and allowed them to gain just yards while forcing them into four turnovers.
The offseason is now officially here for all 32 NFL teams, but for the Seahawks, it will be an offseason full of parties, parades and celebrating the franchise’s first Super Bowl victory.
For the Broncos, it will be another offseason of “what ifs” after failing to win a Super Bowl after entering the playoffs as the prohibitive favorites.
