Seattle completely nullified the record-breaking offence of the Broncos, limiting quarterback Peyton Manning to just one touchdown pass after a regular season in which he had thrown an all-time league high 55.
However, Sherman explained that his side had figured out what the Broncos' preferred moves were and also what Manning's hand signals meant on different plays, which allowed them to counteract whatever he had planned.
"All we did was play situational football. We knew what route concepts they liked on different downs, so we jumped all the routes," Sherman told themmqb.com
"Then we figured out the hand signals for a few of the route audibles in the first half. Me, Earl [Thomas], Kam [Chancellor], we're not just three All-Pro players. We're three All-Pro minds.
"Now, if Peyton had thrown in some double moves, if he had gone out of character, we could've been exposed."
The victory saw the Seahawks lift the Vince Lombardi trophy for the first time in their history.
