Denver Broncos head coach John Fox admitted his side had been below-par as they suffered a disappointing 43-8 loss to the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XLVIII.

Denver's record-breaking offence failed to click as they were crushed by the Seahawks at MetLife Stadium, East Rutherford.

Seattle's much-vaunted defence - the Legion of Boom - helped provide the platform for the success while the likes of Percy Harvin added the attacking spark.

And Fox had no excuses after the final whistle, saying: "I just think we ran into a buzz saw.

"We didn't play well enough to beat a very, very good Seattle Seahawks team. Hats off to Pete [Carroll] and his staff and his players as they played very well.


"I give credit to the Seattle Seahawks defence. They stripped the ball out a couple of times and had two interceptions, one for a touchdown."

Denver quarterback Peyton Manning saw his phenomenal campaign suffer a torrid end as he was blown away by the Seattle's defence.

However Fox said he was proud of the achievements of all of his players over the course of the season.

"Peyton is disappointed, like all of us," said Fox. "He has had a tremendous year.

"We didn't finish it like we would have liked to but we accomplished a lot of good things, I'm proud of all of the guys in the locker room - including Peyton - for all of the things they went through and all of the things they overcame."
