(Feb. 2, 2014) – Here we are yet again, the Super Bowl.
New York and New Jersey will be busy with NFL fans and commuters trying to navigate the streets and traffic of East Rutherford.
This year’s matchup will be between the Seattle Seahawks and the Denver Broncos, each led by several profound players ready for Feb. 2.
Quarterbacks Russell Wilson of Seattle and Peyton Manning of Denver will create a classic of a championship but only one can come out on top.
This year I’m picking Seattle to win it all but it won’t be easy.
Manning has a lot of depth in his receiving core including players like Eric Decker, Wes Welker and Demaryius Thomas and will definitely take advantage of the passing game.
Seattle’s secondary includes prolific characters such as corner Richard Sherman who, after his matchup with San Francisco’s Michael Crabtree on Jan. 19, believes he is “the best corner in the game.”
Sherman and company will definitely create problems for Manning and Denver, giving Wilson and the offense ample opportunities to score points.
Seattle’s running back, Marshawn Lynch, will definitely turn on his “Beast-Mode” and plow holes through Denver’s defensive line.
After hours of battling it out on the field, I think Denver will have a 20-17 lead over Seattle up until the two minute warning.
This is when Wilson and company will create a miracle of their own and drive down the field and score the game winning touchdown with just seconds left.
Yes, that’s right. The new generation of the NFL has arrived. Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks will defeat Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos 24-20 in a Super Bowl XLVIII instant classic.
