The Seattle Seahawks have won their first Super Bowl title, crushing the favoured Denver Broncos 43-8.
    
Linebacker Malcolm Smith returned an interception of Peyton Manning 69 yards for a touchdown late in the first half Sunday, and Percy Harvin returned the opening kickoff of the second half 87 yards for another TD.
    
The Seahawks led 36-0 before Denver finally scored on the last play of the third quarter.
    
Manning was 34 of 49 for 280 yards, but most of that came after Seattle had all but put the game away. He was flustered by Seattle's fierce defence for most of the first half, throwing two interceptions. The second fluttered into Smith's hands after Cliff Avril struck the five-time NFL MVP's arm as he was releasing the ball.
    
Second-year quarterback Russell Wilson was coolly efficient for the Seahawks, throwing for two touchdowns.

 Seattle linebacker Malcolm Smith returned an interception of Peyton Manning 69 yards for a touchdown and later recovered a fumble, earning Super Bowl MVP honours in the Seahawks' 43-8 victory over the Denver Broncos on Sunday night.
    
Smith is only the third linebacker in Super Bowl history to earn the award, joining Ray Lewis of Baltimore in 2001, and Chuck Howley of Dallas in 1971.
    
It was appropriate that a member of Seattle's league-leading ``D'' would be the MVP, considering the way the Seahawks shut down Manning and Denver's record-breaking offence, forcing four turnovers and holding the Broncos scoreless until the last play of the third quarter.
    
Smith's pick-6 made it 22-0 late in the first half, and Seattle was on its way.

    That was effin' ugly. I don't think there's a team in the league that could have handled that defence. Incredible defensive performance - that's coming from a Peyton Manning fan (Fanning?). Oh...and to the haters; Peyton didn't choke. His offensive line could not contain the pass rush. I hope he comes back next year. Love to see hime reire with another championship.
