In a Super Bowl 48 rematch, the Seattle Seahawks played the Denver Broncos at home. Unlike the Super Bowl, this game was a match for the ages as the Broncos came back from a 17-3 deficit to tie the game at 20.
The Broncos notched a safety in the fourth quarter to shift the momentum, and quarterback Peyton Manning threw his first touchdown of the game before the Seahawks extended their lead to eight points with 59 seconds left after an interception by safety Kam Chancellor.
Manning wasn’t finished just yet though as he threw the game-tying touchdown pass to tight end Jacob Tamme and completed the two-point conversion to wide receiver Demaryius Thomas.
The Seahawks won the overtime coin toss and drove down the field for the winning touchdown, which was scored by running back Marshawn Lynch on a six-yard run.
Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson threw for 258 yards and two touchdowns with one interception on 24-of-34 passing, and he added 40 yards on the ground. Lynch ran for 88 yards and a touchdown on 26 carries.
For the Broncos, Manning threw for 303 yards on 31-of-49 passing with two touchdowns and one interception. Running back Montee Ball was shut down with only 38 rushing yards on 14 carries.
Emmanuel Sanders led the Broncos receivers with 11 catches for 149 yards. The defense performed well as it registered three sacks and kept the Seahawks offense in check until overtime.
