The Seattle Seahawks rode the No. 1 defense in the league to win the franchise's first Super Bowl title.

The Seahawks scored 12 seconds into each half and racked up 21 points off turnovers on the way to a 43-8 rout of the Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII on Sunday.

Percy Harvin's 87-yard kickoff return touchdown to start the second half came after the Seahawks also scored 12 seconds into the game on a snap that sailed over Manning's head and into the end zone. The safety counted as the Super Bowl's fastest-ever points.

Peyton Manning set passing and touchdown records in a dream regular season for the highest-scoring offense of all-time, but his third Super Bowl was a nightmare from start to finish, as he threw two interceptions in the first half and both were turned into touchdowns by the Seahawks.

Marshawn Lynch scored on a 1-yard run after the first pick and linebacker Malcolm Smith returned the second 69 yards for a 22-0 halftime lead. Smith was named Super Bowl MVP, becoming the first defensive player to earn Super Bowl MVP honors since Buccaneers safety Dexter Jackson in Super Bowl XXXVII.

Percy Harvin, back after missing the NFC Championship Game with a concussion, fielded a short, bouncing kickoff after halftime and slipped at least three would-be tacklers for a shocking 29-0 lead.

Russell Wilson, the former third-round pick, was 18 of 25 for 206 yards and Lynch rushed for 39 yards on 15 carries.

The Broncos are now 2-5 in seven Super Bowls. The two wins came in consecutive seasons in 1998-99 behind quarterback John Elway, now the team's executive VP of football operations.

Peyton Manning was trying to become the first quarterback to lead two teams to a Super Bowl win and he was attempting to match brother Eli's two Super Bowl titles.

Manning threw for 280 yards, completing 34 of 49 passes, and is now 1-2 in three Super Bowls after going 1-1 with the Colts Manning won his record fifth NFL MVP award after throwing for 5,477 yards and 55 touchdowns in the regular season, both league records.

The Seahawks went their last eight games, including the playoffs, without giving up more than 20 points. They led the NFL during the regular season in total defense and points allowed.
