Tonight (6:30 p.m. ET), the Denver Broncos will face the Seattle Seahawks at MetLife Stadium in the NFL's first outdoor, cold-weather Super Bowl (or at least that was the plan; temperatures are expected to hover in the 40s around kickoff).
The game will be a study of contrasts. The Broncos rewrote the record books in 2013, breaking the single-season marks for points (606) and total touchdowns (76). The offensive assault was led by Peyton Manning, who broke two single-season records on his own (passing touchdowns and passing yards). Overall, to no one's surprise, the Broncos finished as the NFL's No. 1 scoring offense. On the other side is the Seattle, the No. 1 scoring defense. Led by the Legion of Boom -- the nickname for the Seahawks' suffocating secondary -- Seattle finished first in total takeaways and yards allowed.
