EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- The blowout Super Bowl made a return Sunday - Seattle Seahawks 43, Denver Broncos 8. Russell Wilson tossed a pair of TD passes and the Seahawks capitalized on a host of Broncos mistakes in their stunningly easy upset.

Twelve seconds into the game, the Seahawks scored on a safety. Twelve seconds into the second half, Percy Harvin crossed the goal line to cap an 87-yard kickoff return.

In the most lopsided Super Bowl in 21 years, the Seahawks breezed to their first NFL championship since entering the league as a 2-12 expansion team in 1976. It's Seattle's first major sports championship since the old NBA SuperSonics won it all in 1979.

Seahawks QB Russell Wilson tossed threw a pair of touchdown passes in directing an efficient Seattle offense that scored three touchdowns directly off Denver mistakes.

The Seahawks scored touchdowns running and receiving, returning a kickoff and also with an interception return, as well with two field goals and a safety to start the game.

NFC teams now have won five of the last seven Super Bowls.
