EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. â€” They shut down Peyton Manning and shut up their critics.
And then, in the happy celebration of the Seahawksâ€™ first Super Bowl title in their 38-year history, defensive end Red Bryant stood up in the locker room and issued a challenge to everyone within earshot.
â€śThis team has got to go down as one of the best defenses of all time,â€™â€™ Bryant yelled after Seattleâ€™s 43-8 victory over the Denver Broncos on Sunday at MetLife Stadium. â€śItâ€™s got to. And the best thing about it is they called us misfits, overachievers, said that nobody wanted us. But now weâ€™re the best.â€™â€™
