SB 48: One of these things is not like the other
Rankings by PPG:
Seattle offense: 8th
Seattle defense: 1st
Denver offense: 1st
Denver defense 22nd
Seattle also played six games against top ten defenses in the regular season: SF * 2, Ari *2, NO, Car.
Most of the talk for two weeks will be Denver's offense vs. Seattle's defense, but the other unit matchup could decide the game. Denver's D hemorrhaged big points to some offenses this year, but tightened up in the playoffs, allowing 33 to SD and NE, helped by the offense holding the ball for 35+ minutes in each game.
I don't think Denver will be able to sustain nearly as many long drives against Seattle.
Early gut reaction pick: Seattle 33 Denver 20
