What will matter most? The fact that Seattle has no players with Super Bowl experience, or their youth and speed and top-ranked defense? Or will the game be won by Denver’s suddenly stout rush defense and Peyton Manning’s blessed right arm?
If you are looking for a Super Bowl preview that attempts to dig into the match-up to reveal a stat or a tendency or an “x-factor” that the game could turn on, you have some options.
With all the extra attention an outdoor, cold weather Super Bowl has given the league, the NFL should commit to making the host city a major part of the Super Bowl story every year.
Rather than focusing on silly statistics like Denver’s 0-3 Super Bowl record when wearing their orange jerseys, this is going to be on legitimate game-changing X-Factors.
The biggest game of the year cannot dare be altered because of snow, rain, wind, or the cold. My question is why?
Both Denver and Seattle advanced this week after defeating the Patriots and Niners, respectively. The two will square off on Groundhog Day this year with the championship on the line. The question is: who will end up with the title?
