  • It's going to be hard to imagine a scenario where the Seahawks win without a turnover -- but sadly, Denver seems to have a problem with that. Even in the domination of the Chargers in the Divisional playoff round, the Broncos still somehow managed to run it over twice. The turnover free game against the Patriots was a good change -- hopefully, something can repeat in the Super Bowl.

    • Honestly though, this game might come down to drops -- the Broncos have an unusually high number of them for an elite offense and in the Saints games, the Seahawks showed they were good at forcing drops with big hits -- the receivers were open, the ball hit their hands, but then boom -- they get blown up and drop it.

      • Did Pagano talk about how our offensive line was made up of 3 starters, 2 backups, and one starter playing a position he had never played before?

            There's only two that I would consider above average in terms of throwing the ball; Ryan and Brees, but Ryan had a terrible year and Brees was not good on the road this year so.. Yeah definitely a favorable schedule

              Luck?

              but yes, definately a favorable schedule in terms of QB's, for sure.

                This got me curious, so I did the math and it looks like the Broncos are averaging about 20 points more than the Saints on the road at 36.3 ppg. The Saints lowest road score was 7 points against the Seahawks and 27 against the Patriots. In contrast, the Broncos lowest road score was 28 points against the Chargers and 51 against the Cowboys.

                In fairness to the Saints, they did play some tougher defenses in the Rams, Seahawks, Jets, and Panthers. The toughest road defenses the Broncos faced were the Giants and Chiefs.

                  • Seattle's offense resembles KC's in having a great RB and a mobile QB. The return of Percy Harvin helps them greatly. Denver's run D is something on which to build a viable game plan. Denver's DL matches up well with Seattle's OL in spite of having lost two starters during the season. The DBs the Broncos have available are a capable group with some depth left after the season ending injuries of two starters. Even with the loss of Von Miller, the Broncos have a good group of Backers who take good angles, pursue and cover well.

                    • Seattle would be about 7-9 without that +20 turnover differential. If we hold onto the ball, we win.

                        I have been paying attention about 1/3 of the season to the turnovers that seattle has gotten this season....maybe I am being a homer hear, but man it seems like they played ALOT of QB's that seem to throw the ball DIRECTLY TO THEM.....it seems like many of their interceptions were easy picks.....

                        • So if Seattle is going extra hard for forced fumbles and strips, doesn't that open big play opportunities?

                          The other thing to keep in mind is that if we can shut down their O at will, then we can negate a turnover. A turnover only matters if you capitalize off of it. The Seahawks stripping the ball then going three and out is actually has a negative effect on your Seattle's Defense.

                          The Broncos Defense is the key to winning this game believe it or not.

                          • Turnovers are a key to any game. They all know, but give other teams credit for forcing turnovers. When you pressure a QB he might take risks or not throw the best pass, Manning too. Pats loss, Colts loss and most playoff losses... Ravens last year! Manning vs Bolts in 2 playoff years! Brees has avg 2.1 sec to throw... Kap ran or they would have sacked him a bunch... Carroll already said the plan is to pressure Manning... so hope someone is open, cuz Mannings gonna get big pressure...front 4 or blitz... and any ints are gonna be from being hurried and throwing into tight coverage... one game shot.. regular season stats dont mean squat... funny thing, the team that physically dominates any game on the lines seems to win the turnover battle almost all the time..

                              What was that saying again? "Defense wins championships"?

                                Oh lord, do the Hawks D actually WANT to get toasted? Peyton is GOOD against the blitz!

                                Better off for us if that is his plan.
