The Seahawks weren't the only ones scoring big numbers during the game.

More than 111.5 million viewers tuned into Sunday night's big game.

That's the most watched television event in U.S. history.

This is the fourth time in five years the event set a ratings record.

The game also set standards for the most-streamed sports event online and, with 24.9 million tweets, the biggest U.S. live TV event on Twitter.

Sunday's game just beat out the Giants 2012 Super Bowl win over the Patriots.

Bruno Mars' halftime show with the Red Hot Chili Peppers was also the most watched ever, beating out Madonna's 2011 performance.

Nielsen estimates more than 115 million people tuned in.
