On February 2nd the Denver Broncos will take on the Seattle Seahawks in Superbowl thirty eight.(XLVIII)
This is a highly anticipated matchup due to statistics.
Based on espn.com the Broncos this season averaged more yards per game than any other offense(457 yards), while Seattle’s defense gave up the fewest yards per game (273) . A key match up that many people will be looking for is Peyton Manning vs Richard Sherman. Sherman has publicly stated that he is the best cornerback in the NFL. Statistically you could argue that Manning is the best quarterback in the NFL, even though Manning would never make an arrogant statement claiming he’s the best.
Expected to be a close game, OddShark favors the Broncos by 1.5 points.
Another controversial issue will be the weather. This is the first year ever that the Super Bowl will be played outside in a cold part of the country.
I personally don’t believe that the weather will play a major role in this game. Both Denver and Seattle are prone to cooler temperatures which both teams are used to playing in. I also believe that due to the atmosphere and intensity of the game players will be relatively unaffected by the weather conditions.
As for my predictions, I believe that the Seahawks will win this game 14-10. Even though I believe the Seahawks will win, I would love to see Peyton Manning win another Super Bowl.
