4. The 12th Man Will Get Shut Up Early
The Broncos have surprisingly done a really good job of making plays in the early stages of games. Last year, they were slow to start and finished with a bang. This year, they’ve started well, stalled a bit, and then had a little explosion of offense before the second half where they have gone to the back of a milk carton.
I think in this game, the key is going to be getting the Seahawks down in the count early, taking the home field advantage away. It’s easier said than done, but if the Broncos can get out to a 10-0 or 14-0 lead, the style that the Seahawks play offensively could make it really tough for them to come back.
