Super Bowl Features Top Defense vs. Top Offense

Jan 21, 2014 -- 5:06pm

   Super Bowl 48 is going to be special! And no, not because it's in New York City. What's special is seeing the NFL's best offense take on the top defense. It'll be the 5th time since 1970 and the defense leads 3-1. Wonder how it will turn out this time?

  That one time the best offense beat the top defense was when the 49ers ko'd the Broncos, 55-10. Joe Montana threw a Super Bowl record 5 touchdown passes. Can Peyton do something like that?

   Manning's Broncos offense has punted just once in the playoffs. Think about that one. Peyton carved up that Belicheck Patriots defensive scheme last weekend. His next TD toss will be his 60th of the season. He's got 5 big-play weapons surrounding him and a good O-Line. Seahawks better bring it!

   The Seattle defense is allowing 14.4 points a game, which is tops in the NFL. The Seahawks 30 interceptions lead the league. Opponents 3rd down conversion rate: Seahawks #3 in the NFL at 35.2%. And they lead the NFL in forced turnovers. Sounds like Peyton and the Broncos offense better bring it!

   Can't wait to see this. Offense versus defense. Peyton Manning and all those weapons facing Richard Sherman and the Legion of Boom. Sign me up. Looks like it could be a classic.
