The Seattle Seahawks - aka the Legion of Boom - are by far the tougher of the two teams and they going to beat the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII. 

 

Boom!

Not enough? Then ok, how about this: Seattle's defense led the NFL this season in points allowed, yards allowed, yards per play allowed, turnovers forced, adjusted net yards per (pass) attempt allowed and interception rate.  Yeah, that’s called domination.

 

Boom!

 

Beast-Mode!  Marshawn Lynch will pummel the Broncos defense, setting up play-action passes so Russell Wilson can pick apart the Denver secondary.  

 

Boom!

 

During Peyton Manning’s long career, cold weather has been his Achilles heel.   This is going to be especially obvious against the much faster Seahawks defense.  Look for Manning’s wobbly passes to be picked off a few times.  These turnovers will be the game-changing margin for Seattle.

 

Boom!

 

History favors the Seahawks. This year’s match-up marks the fifth time in Super Bowl history that the number one offense has played against the number one defense.  The team with the number one defense had won three out of four times. Since 2000, teams with top-three scoring defenses have won 7 of 13 Super Bowls.

 

Boom!
