Super Bowl 2014: Seattle Seahawks’ Defense Outplayed Denver Broncos’ Offense
The Seattle Seahawks were arguably the better defense throughout both the regular season and the playoffs, and much had been discussed about whether they were going to be able to matchup with the Denver Broncos’ offense — one of the best in the history of the NFL — and it was clear they came up firing based on what happened at the MetLife Stadium.
The Seahawks put constant pressure on Peyton Manning and the offensive made a great job hurrying the Broncos’ offense throughout the game. The receivers weren’t able to do anything as the secondary was spectacular on the coverage and the rushing attack was ineffective since both Knowshon Moreno and Montee Ball struggled to gain yards with their legs.
It’s safe to say that the Broncos did help to the Seahawks’ performance with several turnovers — fumbling the ball three times — and costly mistakes on both sides of the ball. Denver struggled to move the chains on offense and Manning was largely inaccurate, but most of that was caused by Seattle’s defensive line.
The Seahawks even found a way t0 put points on the board thanks to their defense. A safety in the first quarter after Cliff Avril tackled Moreno in the end zone, and a pick-six by Malcolm Smith well into the second period made an impact; the Seahawks did damage with their defense on both sides of the ball.
It was a truly spectacular performance as they simply dominated the game, and just like they did the whole season, their defensive unit carried them to the glory; first to win the NFC Championship and later to take home the biggest game of the season and the first Super Bowl trophy in the history of the franchise.
