The Broncos wanted a rematch with the team that utterly abused them in Super Bowl XLVIII, but they didn’t want a hungry Seattle Seahawks squad coming off a loss. That’s just what they’ll get this Sunday.
Fantasy football players are also ready to go all-in on Thursday night. Finding favorable matchups in the first game on the schedule each week gives a player a big edge going into Sunday.
Terrance Knighton summed it up for so many Broncos fans when he sat stone-faced after Seattle’s 43-8 drubbing of Denver in the Super Bowl and said, “It doesn’t feel real. It almost feels like a nightmare.”
When you win the Super Bowl, there isn’t much to complain about as far as overall team performance is concerned. But here is a look back at what the Seahawks excelled at and aspects of their game that they will need to tighten up next season.
The Seahawks won their first Super Bowl title Sunday night in overpowering fashion, punishing Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos 43-8.
With Seattle having just a handful of players listed on the injury report and with Denver in the double digits, things are looking good for the ‘Hawks.
The names are hardly as familiar as Peyton Manning and Richard Sherman. Yet, for all the megastars and All-Pros in this Super Bowl, there are guys like Jermaine Kearse and Paris Lenon.
Just like in the regular season Percy Harvin’s return to the field in the postseason was short lived as Harvin will not be playing against San Francisco this weekend.
The 3 big names dealing with injuries heading into the NFC Championship Game could all play. The 49ers figure to have both Carlos Rogers and Will Tukuafu ready to go, while Seattle’s Percy Harvin is a big question mark and will remain so up until kickoff.
When Seattle traded for Percy Harvin during the offseason, they weren’t expecting to only have him for one game this season. Now that the Playoffs are set, it looks like Harvin may be able to return for Seattle’s next game.
