Super Bowl XLVIII
Super Bowl XLVIII was an American football game between the American Football Conference (AFC) champion Denver Broncos and National Football Conference (NFC) champion Seattle Seahawks to decide the National Football League (NFL) champion for the 2013 season. The Seahawks defeated the Broncos 43–8, the largest point differential since Super Bowl XXVII in 1992. The game was played on February 2, 2014, at MetLife Stadium at the Meadowlands Sports Complex in East Rutherford, New Jersey, with kickoff occurring at 6:25 pm EST (UTC−05:00).
This was the first Super Bowl played outdoors in a cold-weather city, and the first played outdoors on artificial turf (FieldTurf) since Super Bowl X at the Miami Orange Bowl. It was also the first in which two U.S. states, New York and New Jersey, shared hosting duties.
For the first time since Super Bowl XLIV, and just the second time in the past twenty seasons, the number 1 seeds from each conference met to decide the championship. The game featured the league's top offense (Denver) against the top defense (Seattle), the first time this has occurred since Super Bowl XXXVII. It also featured two former division rivals—Seattle played in the AFC West division from 1977 to 2001)--which last occurred in Super Bowl XLIII.
This was Seattle's first Super Bowl win in franchise history. Seahawks linebacker Malcolm Smith, who scored on a 69-yard interception return for a touchdown, recorded a fumble recovery and nine tackles, was named the game's most valuable player.
