This week’s Beast of the Week is the entire Seattle Seahawks defense. The Seahawks just won the Super Bowl in shocking blow out fashion of Peyton Manning’s 13-3 Denver Broncos 43-8.
The Denver Broncos had one of the greatest offenses of all time getting an average of 457 yards a game. Manning broke Brees’ all time yards record in a season (5,477) and Brady’s touchdown record in a season (55).
The Seahawks’ defense shut down this top notch offense by allowing 305 total yards and holding the Broncos to a season low 8 points, and shut them out going into halftime for the first time all season. The Super Bowl MVP was a linebacker for only the 3rd time in history (Chuck Howley; Super Bowl V, Ray Lewis; Super Bowl XXXV, Malcolm Smith; Super Bowl XLVIII). The Seahawks absolutely dominated on defense proving all the critics wrong and also proving that defense wins Championships.
