Super Bowl XLVIII - Seattle Seahawks vs Denver Broncos 2/2/14 - Free NFL Picks & Predictions
NFL: 6:25 PM EST February 2, 2014 TV: FOX
On Sunday, February 2, 2014, the Seattle Seahawks will face off against the AFC Champions, the Denver Broncos. On paper, this game looks fantastic. It is billed as the war of the wills. You have the league's top offense facing off against the league's top defense. Both teams have identical records of 13-3, as far as the regular season goes.
The Seahawks are coming off of a hard fought 23-17 win over the San Francisco 49ers, in which it took a last minute interception to win the game. The Seahawks did this with their defense, forcing three second-half turnovers agianst the 49ers -- something very uncharacteristic for a 49er team. They also have a versatile offense that has a running game that is capable of keeping the ball out of the hands of Peyton Manning.
Speaking of Manning, he has run a well-oiled machine this year, breaking passing records for yards and touchdowns thrown. Knowshon Moreno has provided the ground support, forcing defenses to remain honest. Manning was able to take a rare playoff win over Tom Brady, who simply said that the Denver offense ran smoothly, and it would have taken an exceptional performance by any team to beat them. The Broncos took the game 23-17.
