EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - A look at the Super Bowl on Sunday night between the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks at MetLife Stadium.


HILLARY’S ANALYSIS: Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton didn’t seem to mind Seattle’s Super Bowl rout of Denver. “It’s so much more fun to watch FOX when it’s someone else being blitzed & sacked!” she Tweeted.


SCORING SEAHAWKS: Seattle started the fourth quarter with another touchdown drive, upping its lead to 43-8 and becoming the seventh team to score at least 40 points in a Super Bowl.


RECORD-SETTER: Broncos receiver Demaryius Thomas set a Super Bowl record with his 12th reception.


BRONCOS ON THE BOARD: Peyton Manning hit Demaryius Thomas with a 14-yard touchdown pass late in the third quarter and Denver finally broke through on the scoreboard. The Broncos‘ TD and subsequent 2-point conversion pass to Wes Welker made the score 36-8 heading into the fourth quarter. There has never been a shutout in the Super Bowl.


SHERMAN SHAKEN UP: Seahawks star Richard Sherman was briefly shaken up on Denver’s first possession of the second half. The talkative cornerback went down with an apparent leg injury, but jogged off the field and was back in the game quickly.


12 SECONDS TO GLORY: Seattle scored 12 seconds in to the first half and 12 seconds into the second half.


HALFTIME SHOW: Not long after Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chili Peppers finished at rocking Super Bowl halftime show, Seattle struck again. Percy Harvin, the oft-injured receiver, returned the opening kickoff of the second half 87 yards for a touchdown and a 29-0 lead. Harvin missed much of the season with a hip injury and missed the NFC championship game with a concussion.
