Super Bowl XLVIII reportedly records a slight drop in ratings from the previous year's Vince Lombardi Trophy game.

The ratings for the Seattle Seahawks' win against the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII were reportedly down fractionally from the previous year.

Seattle cruised to victory over the Broncos by a margin of 35 points, with the game all but sealed after the first play of the second half when Percy Harvin ran the kickoff back to put his side up 29-0.

As a result, the audience share of 47.6 recorded was down from the 48.1 rating of Super Bowl XLVII, when the Baltimore Ravens edged out the San Francisco 49ers in a game that went to the final play of the match, reports SportsBusiness Journal.

Super Bowl XLVIII was the fifth-highest rating ever recorded for the NFL's title game.
