Super Bowl XLVIII
When you win the Super Bowl, there isn’t much to complain about as far as overall team performance is concerned. But here is a look back at what the Seahawks excelled at and aspects of their game that they will need to tighten up next season.
Defense wins championships, and the NFL has not seen a defense like Seattle’s in a long time.
For every person who watches the Super Bowl for the game, there’s someone else tuned in for the commercials. This year is no different. Therefore, behold our annual big list of Super Bowl spots.
With Seattle having just a handful of players listed on the injury report and with Denver in the double digits, things are looking good for the ‘Hawks.
What will matter most? The fact that Seattle has no players with Super Bowl experience, or their youth and speed and top-ranked defense? Or will the game be won by Denver’s suddenly stout rush defense and Peyton Manning’s blessed right arm?
If you are looking for a Super Bowl preview that attempts to dig into the match-up to reveal a stat or a tendency or an “x-factor” that the game could turn on, you have some options.
Everything is larger in New York, and Super Bowl Boulevard is no exception. It has the obscene, fun-house distortion you expect when a party is thrown in Times Square.
What “big game” will be shown? Sunday’s Magic-Celtics game? No. Of course not. Seahawks-Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII. It’s a Super Bowl Party. (But not officially.)
With a day known for for it’s outlandish stunts, both by the media and the players, it was the small amount of answers by Lynch that made the headlines.
While these two teams did play each other during pre-season, it’s safe to say that only a fool would look at that game footage in August for an inside edge.
For those who may not be old enough to remember, Seattle and Denver used to both be in the AFC West, facing off more than 50 times as division rivals. This wasn’t limited to the regular season either as both teams met in 1983 for Seattle’s first every NFL Playoff game.
Rather than focusing on silly statistics like Denver’s 0-3 Super Bowl record when wearing their orange jerseys, this is going to be on legitimate game-changing X-Factors.
Details, including the referees, National Anthem singer and the color jerseys the Broncos will wear have come out in anticipation of Super Bowl XLVIII in less than two weeks.
What does Seattle have to do in order to win the Super Bowl for the first time in franchise history?
Super Bowl XLVIII will feature the Denver Broncos and their top offense in the NFL against the Seattle Seahawks and their top defense in the NFL thanks to Seattle’s 23-17 win over San Francisco.
