In the build up to the clash, much of the talk has been about Seattle’s secondary defence line which has been one of the best units out of any team all season long.
Led by the flamboyant and outrageous Richard Sherman, the four man line has made countless game winning interceptions including one made by Sherman himself in the dying seconds of the 23-17 NFC final victory over San Francisco a fortnight ago.
It was a move which showed great determination for the Seahawks who battled their way into the Super Bowl with a 23-15 victory against New Orleans adding to their win against the 49ers in the post season.
For the Seahawks, a return to the MetLife Stadium will certainly be welcomed considering that they already thrashed the Giants there 23-0 back in round 15 of the regular season.
However, Denver have got a powerful offensive line that has set many records this season and which is led by All-Star quarterback Peyton Manning.
Manning’s line has crushed virtually all that have stood before hit and have set several new milestones including records for most touchdowns made and most points scored during the regular season.
This rampage continued going into the post-season where Denver managed to beat San Diego 24-17 to clinch their division before defeating New England 26-116 to win the AFC title and book a spot in the Super Bowl.
Sunday’s game against Seattle will be a big occasion for Manning who is aiming to become the first starting quarterback to win two Super Bowl titles with two different clubs having already been to the pinnacle once with the Indianapolis Colts back in 2006.
It certainly seems like there is everything to play for in 2014 with a last minute play looking most likely to be the deciding factor as to whether Seattle or Denver will be the winners of Super Bowl 48 in New York.
