Super Bowl XLVIII is only one day away. The biggest sporting event in the entire world is upon us. The Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks will face off in the "Battle of the Best". The league's best offense, led by Peyton Manning, one of the best quarterbacks in NFL history, is pitted against the NFL's best defense, led by a talented and young Seattle core. This truly has the makings of a good one, and it will be interesting to see if the game lives up to the hype.
The 48th Super Bowl in NFL history marks the first time the game will ever be held outdoors in a cold city atmosphere. A successful cold city Super Bowl could set the precedent for future cold city Super Bowls. Such has been indicated by Eagles owner Jeff Lurie, who plans to make a bid for a Philadelphia Super Bowl if this weekend goes well.
This is it, folks. The final game of the season. After this one, all teams will be 0-0 again and there won't be meaningful football until September. Enjoy it while it lasts.
Here is all the information you need to know for Sunday's game.
When it comes to predictions, the Denver Broncos are the favorite by a considerable margin. This sentiment is consistent with what Las Vegas thinks. The odd-makers favor the Broncos to win. Peyton Manning is odds-on favorite to win the Super Bowl MVP Award.
Eagles fans are fairly split when it comes to rooting interests in the Super Bowl. The Denver Broncos have the slight edge. One explanation for this could be because fans don't want to see the Seahawks, who have never won a championship, win a Super Bowl trophy before the Eagles do.
