Super Bowl Notes

January 20, 2014

The Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks will meet in the 48th Super Bowl on February 2nd. These two teams were once both in the AFC West. They met only one time in post season competition.

That is “Groundhog’s Day” which evokes repeat action both from the groundhog legend and movie of the same name. These teams will “repeat” a post season clash from 30 years ago in the AFC wild card game.

That game was an obscure one, a Saturday wild card game when there was only one such game in each conference. Seattle won that game at home, beating Denver and its rookie quarterback John Elway.

This season, both Seattle and Denver rode the one seed to a Super Bowl berth. This is just the second time in the last twenty seasons that both conference one seeds advanced to the “Big Game.”

The other time was in 2009 and it also involved current Denver quarterback, Peyton Manning, whose Indianapolis Colts met fellow one seed New Orleans (Saints), in the Super Bowl.

New Orleans won that Super Bowl. Manning, whose team was favored in that one, is with a slightly favored Broncos team in the upcoming Super Bowl.
