Seattle beats Denver, wins first Super Bowl

Seattle set a record for the fastest score in Super Bowl history, a safety two seconds into the game, and never looked back, cruising to a 36-8 win over Denver.

On the Broncos first play of the game an errant snap went past Peyton Manning, it was kicked out of the back of the endzone for a safety with 14:58 showing on the first quarter clock. The fastest score in Super Bowl history.

Things never got better for the Broncos. Seattle added two field goals, then got their first touchdown in the second quarter when Marshawn Lynch went in from a yard out to make it 15-0. That score was set up by a Kam Chancellor interception, one of three Denver turnovers on the day.

Seahawks linebacker Malcolm Smith was named MVP after recording a team-high 10 tackles and returning an interception for a score. The pick-six came in the second quarter, Manning was hit as he threw and the ball fluttered in the air to Smith who ran it back 69 yards for a 22-0 lead.

Percy Harvin blew the game completely open after the half. He returned the second half kick off 87 yards for a touchdown and a 29-0 lead.

Denver would not get on the board until the last play of the third quarter. Demaryius Thomas caught a 14 yard touchdown pass from Manning and they added a 2-point conversion, but it was too little too late.

By the time the final gun sounded it was 36-0 Seattle, it is their first Super Bowl win in franchise history.
