ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION
Aerial video footage showed people on the streets of Seattle celebrating after winning the Super Bowl.
The Seattle Seahawks showed defense still rules in the Super Bowl as they embarrassed the usually high-scoring Denver Broncos 43-8 on Sunday to win their first NFL championship in franchise history.
The top-ranked Seattle defense shut down the top-rated offense of the Broncos and record-setting quarterback Peyton Manning, creating four turnovers and turning what was expected to be a nail biter into a Super Bowl 48 rout.
Five previous times the NFL's top-rated defense had faced the league's number one offense, and the defenders were 4-1 in those encounters.
Seattle, and their "Legion of Boom" defensive secondary, fast-covering linebackers and determined pass rushers, upheld the tradition on an unseasonably mild night in the first outdoor venue in a winter-weather site.
