2. Peyton Plays Like a Man Possessed
I think the Broncos not only win this game, but Peyton Manning plays like a man on a mission. He was absolutely flustered by the way things went down to start the Super Bowl. After the terrible snap flew into the end zone, Manning was constantly being hit and pressured up the middle of the field, and the Broncos had no way of getting any sort of rhythm offensively.
It was a perfect gameplan by the Seahawks, and terrible adjustments by the Broncos. This time around, the Broncos know more of what to expect. I think the Super Bowl was the exception in this matchup, not the rule like people are making it out to be. The Broncos are a much better team than they showed that day, and I don’t know who would disagree with that.
Manning is among those who are going to be motivated a little extra to make this win happen, and I think he’s going to have a huge game.
