President Barack Obama has congratulated the Seattle Seahawks for defeating the Denver Broncos and winning Super Bowl XLVIII.
    
The White House says Obama spoke with Seattle head coach Pete Carroll on Tuesday and commended Carroll and his team for a great game.
    
Obama said he looks forward to congratulating Carroll and the team at the White House later this year.
    
The president had avoided picking sides in Sunday's matchup, saying he didn't want to offend either city.
    
Obama predicted a final score of 24-21, but the Seahawks dominated the championship game from the opening kickoff and went on to crush Denver 43-8.
