EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - Seattle Seahawks beat Denver Broncos 43-8 to win Super Bowl.

 



 

SEATTLE (AP) - With shouts, cheers and fireworks, Seattle residents celebrated a dominant victory in the Super Bowl - the city's first major sports championship in more than 30 years.
    
Scores of people took to the streets in the city's Pioneer Square and Capitol Hill neighborhoods. Seattle police planned an increased presence throughout the city Sunday night. They sent a tweet on the department's widely followed Twitter account saying, "Officers will be out and about citywide making sure everyone is celebrating safely."
    
The Seahawks beat the Denver Broncos 43-8. The last time a major Seattle sports franchise won a championship was in 1979 when the Supersonics took the NBA title. The WNBA's Seattle Storm have won two championships, in 2004 and 2010.
    
Mayor Ed Murray says in a statement that a Seahawks victory parade would happen Wednesday.

 


EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - All those records, all for naught.
    
Peyton Manning couldn't cap the greatest season any NFL quarterback ever had or secure his legacy as the best QB in history because his Denver Broncos came down with a case of the yips Sunday night.
    
They lost to Seattle in the Super Bowl 43-8 by falling behind right from the start and never recovering.
    
The bumbling Broncos trailed before Manning ever got his hands on the ball because Manny Ramirez's bad snap went for a safety 12 seconds into the game.
    
It only got worse for the league's most prolific point producers.
    
Dominated in every way, the Broncos (15-4) trudged through the tunnel trailing 22-0 at halftime, then watched Percy Harvin return the second-half kickoff for a TD.
