The Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks will go to the Super Bowl this year. The two old division rivals will make for a great matchup. The best (and oldest) quarterback in the NFL faces off against the best defense in the NFL in the biggest game of the year. I don't think the NFL could have wished for a better matchup. Exciting players, big names, and the best two teams in the NFL.
Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos steamrolled over the New England Patriots, 26-16 on Sunday afternoon in a game that was never as close as the final score. Meanwhile, the San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks got into a tough slugfest for the ages with some inconsistent offense and terrific defensive play. It was a great championship Sunday. Here's to hoping that carries over to Super Bowl Sunday.
Both teams are going to have to deal with the elements in New Jersey in two weeks, though. Snow and cold would make for a unique Super Bowl -- and a lot of complaints from people (mostly, media) in the stadium. But a snow-filled Super Bowl would be tremendous entertainment. We'll see what happens in two weeks.
We have all the nuts and bolts for the game below.
