Seahawks WR Percy Harvin was a star in the Super Bowl. He only recorded one catch for five yards, but returned a kickoff for a touchdown and led the team with 45 rushing yards. He did so on only two carries.
Defensively, MVP LB Malcolm Smith returned one of Peyton’s interceptions for a touchdown and recovered a fumble. S Kam Chancellor also intercepted a pass, and DE Chris Clemons forced two fumbles.
Denver’s sloppiness started on the first scrimmage play, when a poorly timed snap soared into the endzone, where it was recovered by RB Knowshon Moreno. Humiliation continued throughout the game for the Broncos.
The ball-hawking Seattle defense set the tone for the Super Bowl, and the young team cruised to confetti.
