Today is the day of the "big dance". It's the game that all 32 NFL teams play for, but only two teams get to play each season. This year, the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks will play in the Super Bowl and only one team will be champions.
The Peyton Manning lead Broncos were dominate all season. Manning broke the NFL touchdown record with 55 touchdowns and threw for 5,477 yards with only 10 interceptions. The Broncos offense was number one in the league and why wouldn't they be? Look at the weapons that Manning has, Wes Welker, Eric Decker, Demaryius Thomas, and tight end Juilus Thomas, and we can't forget running back Knowshon Moreno, who had a solid year at running back.
The Seattle Seahawks were also dominate this season. Of course all of the attention will be on Russell Wilson and Marshawn Lynch, but it's their #1 ranked defense that could have a big game, lead by outspoken corner Richard Sherman. The Seahawks secondary could be the best in the league with players like Earl Thomas, Sherman, and Kam Chancellor. Combined with a good pass rush and a solid linebacker core, it's simple to know why their defense is great.
So who will win this game? It's going to be a close one. The Broncos offense is great, but their defense has holes - especially in the secondary - and they don't have a good pass rush since they lost Von Miller to a torn ACL earlier this season. The Seahawks defense can hold the Broncos offense and stuff Moreno, but Welker could have a big game. Can Wilson keep Manning off the field and score enough points to defeat Manning?
Honestly, I think the Seahawks have a great chance of winning this game, but the Rams fan in me doesn't want the Seahawks to win, so I'm picking the Broncos 24-21.
