EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Seattle Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin sat out most of the season after having hip surgery. Then he suffered a concussion and was not allowed to play in the NFC championship game. So how the Seahawks might deploy the speedy Harvin was something of a mystery going into Sunday's Super Bowl against the Denver Broncos. Harvin made an immediate impact by carrying the ball twice for impressive gains and catching two passes in the first half.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Malcolm Smith tries to keep a low profile, doing the grunt work for a Seattle Seahawks defense that is the best in the NFL. Staying under the radar might not be possible after Sunday night when the third-year linebacker from USC returned an interception for a touchdown, recovered a fumble and was voted the most valuable player of Super Bowl XLVIII. Smith also made nine tackles as the Seahawks defeated the Denver Broncos, 43-8, at MetLife Stadium.

The Seattle Seahawks lowered the Legion of Boom on the Denver Broncos, easily rolling to a 43-8 victory in Super Bowl 2014. The Seahawks' menacingly nicknamed defense was dominant, holding the Broncos without a first down until the 20th minute of the game, and Seattle continually made Denver pay for its sloppy play, which included four turnovers. It was the first Super Bowl championship for the Seattle franchise, which was making its second Super Bowl appearance. The Seahawks struck quickly in each half, scoring points at the 12-second mark in each.

Seahawks run offense vs. Broncos run defense In playoff games against New Orleans and San Francisco, two rock-solid defenses, Marshawn Lynch ran for 249 yards in 50 carries with three touchdowns. The Seahawks will look to hammer away at Denver, even though the Broncos have been difficult to run against in the postseason. Watch for Denver's safeties to be nosey - quick to come up and react to the run - which sets up the Seattle's play-action passing game. EDGE: Seahawks Seahawks pass offense vs. Broncos pass defense The return of Percy Harvin is key here, because he gives the Seahawks an explosive-play threat they've sorely lacked.

NEW YORK - Pete Carroll is one victory from joining an incredibly exclusive club - coaches who have won both a Super Bowl and a college football national championship. As it is, only Jimmy Johnson and Barry Switzer have done so. Carroll's USC teams won national championships at the end of the 2003 and '04 seasons. Louisiana State defeated Oklahoma in the 2003-04 Bowl Championship Series title game, but the Associated Press chose USC as No. 1 in its final season poll. USC beat Oklahoma for the 2004-05 BCS title but was later stripped by the NCAA.

How odd is it that the two contenders in the Super Bowl -- the Seattle Seahawks and the Denver Broncos -- hail from the two states in the Union that have legalized sale and use of marijuana? Are there two activities more different than the amped-up aggression of professional football and the laid-back mellowness of smoking a joint? I've got nothing against Denver -- a perfectly fine city, as far as I'm concerned. But, as many of my readers know, I am a Seattle boy. My great-grandparents arrived in the muddy little town on the shore of Puget Sound in the 1880s.

If the Seattle Seahawks' ferocious defense isn't enough to make Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning sweat on Super Bowl Sunday, how about the prospect of allowing a city's museum-goers to get thrown for another loss? Besides the Vince Lombardi Trophy, a sterling silver football on a pedestal, and immeasurable bragging rights, the teams will be playing for the artistic gratification of their respective citizens, thanks to a bet between the directors of the Seattle Art Museum and Denver Art Museum.

JERSEY CITY, N.J. - It was one of the biggest, and perhaps the most quickly forgotten, interceptions in NFL playoff history. When Seattle's Richard Sherman tipped away a pass intended for San Francisco 49ers receiver Michael Crabtree in the NFC championship game, linebacker Malcolm Smith caught the ball to complete a play that sent the Seahawks to the Super Bowl. But Smith's heads-up effort instantly became an afterthought when Sherman's emotional postgame outburst made the cornerback one of the Super Bowl's main story lines.

JERSEY CITY, N.J. - Their journeys to the Super Bowl might have been on different roads, but they all started from the same spot - playing college football in Los Angeles. USC and UCLA will have plenty of presence in Sunday's Super Bowl and, although most are backups, names familiar to Southern California football fans are sure to crop up. Seattle Seahawks linebackers Malcolm Smith and Mike Morgan played for the Trojans, and running back Derrick Coleman for the Bruins. Smith, a seventh-round draft pick in 2011, provided the game-saving interception in the Seahawks' NFC championship game victory over the San Francisco 49ers.

JERSEY CITY, N.J. - Richard Sherman and the Seattle Seahawks arrived Sunday night for a week of Super Bowl preparations, and the third-year cornerback was greeted by a six-deep crowd of dozens of reporters during a news conference at the team hotel. "I'm a little surprised by it," Sherman said of the massive reception. "But they told me to expect a little bit after last week. " Sherman, who played at Compton Dominguez High and Stanford, then laughed heartily. Sherman, of course, became one of the Super Bowl's main story lines after tipping away a potential game-winning pass against the San Francisco 49ers and then punctuating the play with his postgame comments about 49ers receiver Michael Crabtree . Sherman's comments and the emotional way he delivered them sparked an intense weeklong debate across all media platforms.
