The Seattle Seahawks won their first ever Super Bowl
by beating the Denver Broncos, but there is so much more to talk about then just the game!
Although, we do have to talk about how crazy the game started. Peyton Manning, future hall-of-famer and one of the best quarterbacks that's ever played the game, had a miscommunication with his offernsive line that led to a botched snap. Seattle jumped on the ball in the Denver endzone and got a safety, leading to the fastest points ever scored in a Super Bowl game.
The game got worse for Denver from there. The Broncos, whose offense was ranked number one in the league, could not get down the field to save their lives. Seattle, who has the best defense in the league, overwhelmed Denver and allowed them only eight points the whole game. Final score: 43 to 8. A 35-point blowout.
Musically, the 2014 Super Bowl was on point. Queen Latfiah, looking better than ever, performed "America the Beautiful" before the game with the New Jersey Youth Chorus. For the first time ever, an opera star performed the "Star Spangled Banner" for the Super Bowl. Grammy-winner artist Renee Fleming sang the national anthem with the Armed Forces Chorus.
was the Pepsi halftime performer
, where he sang a medley of his hits, from "Locked Out of Heaven" to "Treasure." He was joined onstage halfway through his set by the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and the halftime show ended with a rocking rendition of their legendary hit "Give It Away." And yes, the Peppers had their shirts off.
During halftime, people finally got to see what Jerry Seinfeld and Jason Alexander were filming when they were spotted at Tom's restaurant: a mini-Seinfeld reunion!
It was a promo for Jerry's Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee
series, and after some usual Seinfeld
banter between Jerry and George, their nemesis Newman (Wayne Knight
) popped up to bring the reunion full circle. You can watch the full Seinfeld
episode of Comedians in Cars here!
And now, let's move on to why a lot of people watch the Super Bowl in the first place: commercials! While the Coca-Cola "America the Beautiful" commercial and RadioShack's '80s lineup had the most tongues wagging on Twitter, obviously they weren't the only companies putting out high-profile ads. From a Full House reunion to Audi's hilarious "Doberhuahua", here are all the best commercials from the 2014 Super Bowl:
