Standing in the way of Peyton Manning and the high-scoring Denver Broncos’ offense are the Seattle Seahawks, who hope their intimidating defense will help make history of their own.
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.
Tab Douglas previewed the Super Bowl with Mike Wilkening of Pro Football Talk.

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.
In the days since his rant, Sherman has moonwalked from his outburst. Well, kinda. He didn’t apologize for humiliating Michael Crabtree, but insisted he was sorry for deflecting from his team.
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.
