Good as it gets: Peyton Manning’s Denver Broncos will face Richard Sherman’s Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl
Manning’s Denver Broncos and Sherman’s Seattle Seahawks were the NFL’s best all season, so it’s fitting that they’ll meet in the Super Bowl.
Nobody scored as many points or gained as many yards as the Broncos. Nobody allowed as few points or gave up as few yards as the Seahawks.
And nobody won as many games as those clubs, either.
What a way to finish the season. When the AFC champion Broncos (15-3) play the NFC champion Seahawks (15-3) on Feb. 2 at what could be a chilly MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., it will be the first Super Bowl since 1991 pitting the league’s highest-scoring team in the regular season against the team that was scored on the least, according to STATS.
