Peyton Manning vs. Seattle Seahawks’ Defense Is Most Anticipated 2014 Super Bowl Matchup
In the AFC Championship game, Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos’ offense dominated the New England Patriots’ defense, making them look helpless. On the other hand, the Seattle Seahawks’ defense stepped-up in the fourth quarter, shutting down Colin Kapernick and the San Francisco 49ers’ offense. Super Bowl XLVIII is exactly what the fans wanted since the NFL Preseason and there will be many positional matchups to watch. The most interesting matchup will be Manning facing off against the Seahawks’ defense.
The matchup features the No. 1 passing offense against the league leading passing defense. Manning has averaged 340 passing yards per game and Sunday, he threw for a phenomenal 400 yards. For the Seattle defense, they are holding their opponents to a league-best 172 yards per game.
If you haven’t noticed, an elite quarterback averaging 340 yards per game and a defense shutting down opposing offenses don’t mesh. Either Manning’s success will end, or Seattle’s defensive dominance will crumble to an elite quarterback. Nonetheless, no one knows which one will happen even if they try to convince you otherwise.
With two weeks until the Super Bowl, ESPN, Fox Sports and other media outlets will be talking Seattle, Denver and the Super Bowl non-stop. One of the topics will revolve around Manning’s historic season and another will talk about Seattle’s success. With both Manning and Seattle’s defensive unit shining bright during the 2013-14 NFL season, they both deserve the praise and accolades. This is why Manning vs. Seattle’s Defense will be the most anticipated Super Bowl XLVIII positional matchup.
