Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos will face the best defense they've met all season when they play Richard Sherman's Seattle Seahawks in the Super Bowl.
It will be a matchup between the NFL's No. 1 offense, led by Manning, against the NFL's No. 1 "D," led by Sherman, when the AFC's Broncos (15-3) take on the NFC's Seahawks (15-3) on Feb. 2 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.
No upstarts here: Providing quite a cap to the season, this marks only the second time in the last 20 Super Bowls with the No. 1 seeds from both conferences.
The Broncos will be trying to win their third Super Bowl title, after 1998 and 1999. The Seahawks are eyeing their first championship.
