Seattle Seahawks' defense, led by Cliff Avril, butchers Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Peyton Manning's eyes grew wide as the ball zoomed by him into the end zone on the first play of Super Bowl XLVIII.

And things would only get worse from there, if you can believe that, and no one could explain the carnage quite like the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

"Give it away, give it away, give it away now," the shirtless 51-year-old rocker (and Grand Rapids native) Anthony Kiedis belted out during the group's halftime show. And that, the Denver Broncos did.

The Seattle Seahawks used vastly superior speed and physicality to bludgeon Denver's record-setting offense into a 43-8 rout at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.

Denver needed more than a quarter to reach multiple yards rushing. It needed nearly 20 minutes to achieve a first down. It managed only 123 yards in the first half, and an offense that averaged 37.9 points per game in the regular season had been shut out by the time Kiedis took the stage.
