While some analysts, beat reporters and columnists in the country attempt to explain why the Denver Broncos will win the Super Bowl simply because it’s “Peyton Manning’s moment,” or because “great defense beats a great offense every time,” I’m sticking to real life. That means I’m considering only tangible reasons why one team may have an advantage over the other.
Somewhere along the way, “pedestrian” became a favored word for the Seattle Seahawks’ receivers. Doug Baldwin, Jermaine Kearse and Golden Tate each used the word in some fashion after the Seahawks beat San Francisco to win the NFC championship Sunday.
Russell Wilson threw a 35-yard touchdown pass on fourth down and Seattle’s top-ranked defense forced two late turnovers, lifting the Seahawks into their second Super Bowl with a 23-17 victory over the San Francisco 49ers.

The Seahawks are trying to bring life to an offense and a passing game that was already struggling due to poor protection for quarterback Russell Wilson.
