Super Bowl L

Seattle Seahawks (13-6) vs Denver Broncos (14-4)

That’s right. We predict a Super Bowl matchup not many are choosing – a rematch of the embarrassment from two seasons ago in which that version of the Seahawks defense simply bullied the Broncos around.

This time around will be much different.

John Elway made sure his team toughened up since that early February night in 2014. He constructed a defensive-first philosophy and decided Peyton Manning would be an added bonus, instead of a key cog.

It will work out to perfection, as will Manning’s long-winded rest for a good chunk of the season. He surely won’t light up the stat sheet in the playoffs, but he’ll be smart enough and do enough to get the job done.

It’ll be Wade Phillips and that Broncos defense who’ll truly make a name for themselves this winter, helping the legend Peyton Manning go out in true iconic, stranger than fiction fashion.

Broncos 27, Seahawks 23
