This year’s Super Bowl is bound to give every NFL fan something to talk about come Monday morning at the water cooler. It is almost like the football gods knew this was going to be the matchup of all Super Bowl matches before the season even started.

In all honestly though, how many people truly believed this would not be the Super Bowl matchup? Probably not many of you. Having two teams as powerful and dominant as the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks square off in a game of such magnitude is almost a guarantee that fans will never forget this Super Bowl.

The Broncos have multiple weapons on offense that can cause opposing defenses numerous headaches during the course of a game. For starters, having three wide receivers like Eric Decker, Wes Welker and DeMaryius Thomas all on the same team is almost unheard of in today’s league.

No other team in the league can even compare to the same level of talent that the Broncos possess at the receiver position. Throw in a solid running game thanks to Knowshon Moreno and the reliable hands of Julius Thomas at the tight end position, and you have the most explosive offense known to man.

Did I forget to mention someone? Oh that’s right, Peyton Manning, the greatest quarterback in the NFL is also on the Broncos. You just cannot win against a team of this caliber, even if you have the best defense in the game, like the Seahawks. It is certainly is going to be a challenge for everyone on the defensive side of the ball every time Manning walks out onto the field.

Denver has everything a team needs to win a Super Bowl, even a clutch kicker in Matt Prater,  for a last second field goal. In all honestly, it would be great to see Manning win another Super Bowl and finish out his career on top of the football world.

My Prediction: Denver Broncos 28, Seattle Seahawks 24

MVP: Peyton Manning
