Yesterday, at the end of the fourth quarter, the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos were tied. That triggered overtime. The referee tossed a coin, Denver's quarterback called tails and it was heads. So Seattle got the ball, scored a touchdown -- and the game was over.

That’s it.

Denver never got the ball, never got a chance to score.

Thousands of Seahawks fans in Seattle took to the streets to celebrate the team's first Super Bowl win Sunday night.

While the celebrations were largely peaceful, fans in the University District near Greek row used furniture to start bonfires. The Seattle Times reported one arrest in the area.

The Seattle Seahawks defeated the Denver Broncos 43-8 to win Super Bowl XLVIII at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. on Sunday night, the first Super Bowl victory in the team's history.

The game got off to an odd start on the first play from scrimmage when Broncos center Manny Ramirez snapped the ball past quarterback Peyton Manning, who was walking up to the line and didn't have his hands ready. That set the tone for the trouncing the Broncos would receive over the course of the night at the hands of the voracious Seahawks.
