SEATTLE, WA — The Seattle Seahawks secured the second Super Bowl berth in franchise history after beating the San Francicso 49ers, 23-17.
Linebacker Malcolm Smith’s end-zone interception sealed the outcome with 22 seconds remaining. The 49ers, seeking a winning touchdown, had driven to the Seattle 18-yard line. But quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s pass intended for wide receiver Michael Crabtree was deflected by cornerback Richard Sherman and grabbed by Smith.
The Seahawks will face the Denver Broncos on Feb. 2 in the NFL’s first New York-area Super Bowl.
