Not much left to say. This is it. The finality of the 2014 NFL season and a 60-minute opportunity to summarize where the sport is and what determines its best.
And certainly, it's two teams who deserve to be there. The Seahawks are back as defending champions despite starting off 3-3 and down 19-7 with 3:52 left to play in the NFC Championship, they're holding their own fate in their hands.
Meanwhile, the Patriots are back in the Super Bowl for the first time since early 2012. They've finished with double-digit regular season wins in every season since 2002 since which time they've been in four Super Bowls. It's Touchdown Tom time.
