Default 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

I see Seattle winning this game as well, because like you pointed out they seem to be the better all around team. Nobody knows for sure though how the Broncos D will play in one game. They'll have their shot.
