People go all out for anything that’s NFL-related these days. Well, the biggest NFL-related thing is upon this weekend in the form of Super Bowl XLVIII. The Seattle Seahawks are getting set to throw down with the Denver Broncos from MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, which means that the famous 12th man won’t be a factor. However, Washington state is still showing off its 12th man spirit.
Check out this crazy flight pattern a Seahawks themed 747 (pictured above) made on Thursday:
That’s right, a big ol’ 12 pattern over the state of Washington.
This is pretty cool. It’s nice to see an entire state get into the spirit of Super Bowl week.
As for the game itself, the Seahawks are slight underdogs. The oddsmakers have them at +2.5 heading into Sunday’s showdown, and I think that’s about right. The Broncos should be favored to win this game. They’ve been the best team in football all season long and they have this guy named Peyton Manning who’s playing some great football right now.
If the Seahawks are going to pull off the upset (if you even want to call it that), they’re going to need to put up more points. There’s no question that the Seahawks defense is top notch, but there’s no way it can hold Manning scoreless. He’s going to get his. He might not ‘go off’ on Richard Sherman and company, but he’s going to find the end zone on a couple of occasions.
If Seattle can put up 28+ points, I think they’ll win the big game.
