Wilson throws two touchdowns in Seahawks' Super Bowl romp

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ - Statistically, it might look like Russell Wilson didn't do much of the heavy lifting in the Seahawks' 43-8 Super Bowl blowout over the Broncos. But the former Badger did his part in many ways, helping sustain a few offensive drives early in the game and then throwing two touchdown passes in the final quarters to help ice the victory.

The Seahawks also got touchdowns from their defense and special teams, putting intense pressure on Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning throughout the night and never taking their foot off the gas pedal after building up a 22-0 halftime lead.

Manning's only score was a touchdown pass to Demaryius Thomas, followed by a two point coversion to Wes Welker.

Wilson finished 18-25 for 206 yards and the two touchdowns.

The Packers travel to Seattle to face the now defending-Super Bowl champions this fall.
