The Seattle Seahawks have been dominating throughout the first quarter of Super Bowl XLVIII, but they could have been up even more than their current 8-0 lead. After a lengthy drive, Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson through the ball towards Jermaine Kearse in the back of the endzone, and it appeared to be a touchdown.

Unfortunately for Kearse and the Seahawks, Denver Broncos linebacker Nate Irving was sticking to Kearse and came up with a big defensive play to prevent the touchdown.

If it weren’t for Irving’s impressive defensive display, then the Broncos could be down even more.

To make matters worse for the Broncos, Seattle was able to intercept Peyton Manning on the very next drive.
