Everything I heard and everything I read pointed to the Broncos as the upcoming victors of this year’s big football game. There was no way anyone else was going to win. Analyst after analyst would seem to give only a passing nod to the Seahawks, almost as a courtesy, while dismissing the idea that they really had any chance at all of beating Denver in the final game for the Vince Lombardi trophy.

But until that battle actually took place only a few seemed to truly consider them a real threat.
