  • The score: Broncos 27, Seahawks 17
  • The winner: Denver has the league’s No. 1 offence, Seattle the No. 1 defence. The difference, ultimately, will be that the Broncos have dealt with defences almost as good as Seattle’s, but the Seahawks haven’t faced an offence nearly as potent as Denver’s with Peyton Manning. That will tell.
  • Halftime score: Broncos 17, Seahawks 10
  • MVP: Peyton Manning, Broncos
  • Winner vs. spread: Broncos

  • The score: Broncos 23, Seahawks 21
  • The winner: It’s all about Manning. As impressive as the young Seahawks are, Eli’s older brother just turned in the best statistical quarterbacking season in NFL history. In addition, Peyton feels he has a second chance in his football life after the uncertainty of his neck/back injuries left his future cloudy two years ago.
