Seattle Seahawks ‘Legion of Boom’ X-Factor in Super Bowl Victory

By all means Seattle Seahawks played a fundamentally sound football game and created turnovers when needed, but the Seahawks ‘Legion of Boom’ may have played the biggest role in the victory. The NFL’s reigning Most Valuable Player, Peyton Manning, was pressured and flustered throughout the whole game. Seattle’s front four on the defensive line along with the secondary just blanketed Peyton’s key targets throughout the entire game.
The Legion of Boom led by all pro cornerback Richard Sherman dominated the opposition causing two of the Denver Broncos four turnovers in the game while bringing about many other disruptions, a few leading to the Broncos turning over the ball on downs. The Seahawks do have a little concern to come in the following days as Richard Sherman injured his ankle midway through the fourth quarter and was shown at the end of the game in a boot. Other members of the secondary stepped up admirably and made plays of their own throughout the game. Byron Maxwell caused a crucial fumble on what might of been a scoring drive for the Broncos and other fill-in players like Cody Lane and Walter Thurmond played well as they held the Broncos to only eight points the entire Super Bowl.
