Quick game overview
The Super Bowl XLVIII game was an amaxing performance of NFC champion Seattle Seahawks against the AFC champion Denver Broncos. The Seahawks made history by winning their first trophy, and on the opposite side, the Broncos lost title the fifth time in a row.
It all started with a huge mistake Peyton Manning did losing the ball to the Seahawks and resulting in the fastest point ever scored in the history of the big game. In the first half, the Seahawks were leading with 22 points.
The Broncos first scored in the third quarter, when Seattle already had 36 points advantage. The Super Bowl scores by quarter were astonishing: in the first quarter Seattle dominated Broncos with 8 points. It still seemed like Denver had a chance to win the game.
In the second quarter the NFC champion scored 14 points, Broncos still had not scored once. This quarter is when the supporters of both teams went crazy. The Seattle side was in awe, the Denver side was in despair, and they had real reasons because their favorite team had very little chancres to win in the second half.
In the third quarter the scores were 14-8 for Seattle and the last quarter 7-0 for the NFC champion. The final score was 43-8, making the Seattle Seahawks the Super Bowl champ in 2014.
