Seattle Seahawks in the Superbowl
The Seahawks are a good team though, without Alexander, not a superbowl team even though he didnt do much. Shaun Alexander is the first player in NFL history to score 15 or more touchdowns during the regular season for four consecutive years.
Seattle’s defense thrives despite distractions. The Seahawks had to deal with adversity and defensive personnel changes all season, but were never thrown off course. Each NFL team receives one week without a game, known as a bye, during the football season.
Pittsburgh set an NFL record with its ninth road win of the season and ended the Broncos’ 11-game home winning streak.

Jurevicius is in his eighth season in the NFL and also has had an outstanding year. Seattle led the NFL with 50 sacks during the regular season and has four in the playoffs. His two playoff touchdowns tied him for second in the NFL last season. In terms of NFL ranks, this defense was #5 against the run and #7 in fewest points scored during the regular season.
The Seahawks are the only NFL team to switch conferences twice in the post-merger era. These will be 60 hard-fought, difficult minutes against the hottest, most physical team in the NFL. Seattle has the experience and talent to compete with any team in the NFL. They have clearly established themselves as a the elite team in the NFL.

The officials are the best in the NFL for this game. The “Phantom Touchdown” game was decided by a legendary officiating error that became a primary factor in the NFL’s reinstatement of instant replay.
