Despite the 28-degree weather Sunday, February 2, the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks went head to head during the Super Bowl XLVIII at MetLife Stadium.
Prior to the Super Bowl, there was controversy over whether or not the Super Bowl should be held in such harsh weather conditions. Needless to say, the Super Bowl continued.
Many Convent of the Sacred Heart students tuned into the game Sunday evening. Senior Megan Winkhaus even attended this annual event.
“It was actually pretty warm,” Megan said. “As a part of the hosts team package, they gave us all sorts of things to keep warm, but we didn’t need them.”
Starting hard and finishing hard, the Seattle Seahawks took home the title of the Super Bowl XLVIII champions, winning 43-8. None of the Seahawks had previously been members of a Super Bowl-winning team.
Additionally, they have a defensive team that ranks among the best in the country. According to ESPN, the Seahawks provided America with a Super Bowl with one of the greatest performances in a NFL game.
When ESPN interviewed Seattle’s quarterback, Russell Wilson about his win he said, “We’ve been relentless all season. Having that mentality of having a championship day ever day. At the end of the day, you want to play your best football and that is what we did today.”
Until the third quarter, the Seahawks were up 36 to zero.
“I barely watch football and I knew by halftime that Seahawks were going to win,” junior Alana Normile said.
Many joked about the need for another half time blackout as happened in last year’s Super Bowl allowing the Baltimore Ravens to come

back from being down 21 to six.
Many people did not have faith in the Seattle Seahawks, including professional boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr., placing a $10.4 million bet on the Broncos. But as Hercules exemplifies, never doubt the underdog.
Coach Pete Carroll of the Seattle Seahawks said, according to ESPN, “Took us four years to get to this point, but they never have taken a step sideways. These guys would not take anything but winning this ballgame.”
