Super Bowl XLVIII Score: Seahawks 43, Broncos 8 In A Drubbing

Tom Pennington

The 2013 season ends not with a bang, but a whimper as the Seattle Seahawks crush the Denver Broncos 43-8.

We'll make this short and sweet, because this was a forgettable Super Bowl. The Seattle Seahawks have the first title in franchise history after eviscerating an overmatched Denver Broncos team 43-8 in Super Bowl XLVIII.

The Seahawks went into the year as one of the best teams and proved again and again that they were simply too good and too deep across the board to beat. It was never even close in the Super Bowl, as the Peyton Manning-led Broncos struggled to get anything going.

There are lessons to take away here. You need a good quarterback to win, but having true balance and especially a great defense makes all the difference in the world. The Seahawks have provided a master class in constructing a roster, and while they'll need to start paying up in a way that will make it more difficult down the line, every NFL team should do the best they can to emulate the defense in particular.

Congratulations to the Seahawks and Field Gulls in particular. Let's hope the Falcons are in their cleats a year from now.
