CHAOS - A state in which behavior and events are uncontrolled.
Both of the starting RBs in Super Bowl XLVIII play with a reckless abandon -- uncontrolled -- that makes them tough to bring down. As a result of their punishing running styles, they are able to squeeze out every yard possible and they get better as the games go on.
Denver RB Knowshon Moreno is the perfect complement to the Broncos legendary passing game. In 2013 he gained over 1,000 yards rushing and hauled-in 60 passes, and he hit pay-dirt for 10 TDs. Opposing defense often focus on Denver's passing game, and the playmaker Moreno makes them pay.
The Seattle Seahawks running game can be summed-up in two words: Beast Mode. RB Marshawn Lynch rumbled through would-be tacklers for 1,257 yards and 12 TDs this season. Lynch went Beast mode in both playoff wins so far, cranking out game-changing 67-yard and 40-yard touchdown runs against the Saints and 49ers respectively..
No RB has won Super Bowl MVP in the past 16 years...Moreno or Lynch could be the one to change that.
