#12 is all over SBXLVIII



I was reading through the comments after reading Rob Davies' latest, when the subject of the significance of the number 12 came up in the stats. So I started looking into it... and I kept looking into it... and I kind of got sucked into it...

So let's have some numerology fun!

This was the Seahawks' 12th postseason victory, coming in Super Bowl 48. 4+8=12

The Seahawks won their 1st Super Bowl on 2/2/2014. 1+2+2+2+1+4= 12

SB48 is the 4th time Denver has worn their Orange jerseys(and lost the SB). 48/4= 12

The Seahawks scored 12 seconds into each half.

Percy Harvin wears #11 and his touchdown in the first 12 seconds of the 2nd half was his 1 TD in the game. 11+1= 12

He had 137 official total yards and 1 TD. 1+3+7+1= 12

Broncos' #66 botched the first play of the game. 6+6= 12

Their official ToP was 31:53. 3+1+5+3= 12

The Broncos lost the ball 4 times. They lost the game by 35 points. 4+3+5= 12

This was Manning's 12th post-season loss.

I'm sure there are more. If you find more, post them below, and I'll update this list when I find more on my own.

Some of these numbers came from the article(and comments) I mentioned above from our friend across the pond, so be sure to check out his article.

This is my first fanpost, so I'm learning the formatting. Also, I had gifs of each TD, but only one would work for some reason. I'll put them in the comments section.
