Last weekend expectations were met as we had some great NFL conference championship games. The Patriots and 49ers wish they could start it over but the Broncos and Seahawks rejoiced with confetti. Now we are getting ready for the #1 offense and #1 defense to square off. Here are my key matchups, key players, and my prediction for a cold MetLife Super Bowl:

Broncos-30 Seahawks-27
This is a perfect matchup with the Broncos having a great offense and the Seahawks having a great defense. Another key matchup will be Peyton Manning versus Richard Sherman. This will be one of the best quarterbacks in the game going up against one of the best cover corners in the game. Peyton Manning will probably look another way but that Seahawks secondary is the best in the league. Even though the Seahawks defense is great I believe the Broncos will find a way past them, whether it's beating other corners deep or with short screen plays.

 

I believe the Broncos defense will play well and the Bronco offense will capitalize by winning Super Bowl XLVIII on a game winning drive. This is going to be a great game with the two best teams going head to head. I think the Broncos will win but you never know what can happen in a cold Super Bowl XLVIII.
