Senior CBS Sports NFL writer Will Brinson is live from Super Bowl Media Day, so Toucher & Rich had him on to discuss some of the bigger topics surrounding the big game on Sunday.
What does Seattle have to do in order to win the Super Bowl for the first time in franchise history?
Super Bowl XLVIII will feature the Denver Broncos and their top offense in the NFL against the Seattle Seahawks and their top defense in the NFL thanks to Seattle’s 23-17 win over San Francisco.
Seattle and San Francisco have each won their home game against each other. With the rubber match taking place at CenturyLink Field, which game will be played? The blowout 29-3 Seattle win in Week 2 or the 19-17 gritty win by the 49ers in Week 14?
When the 49ers and Seahawks meet for the third time this season the stakes could not be higher. The winner will move on to the Super Bowl, while the loser will have to deal with falling just short of the big stage and to make matters worse at the hands of their hated division rival.
It may not be the Beast Quake, but Marshawn Lynch had another great game against New Orleans in the Playoffs as Seattle was able to outlast the Saints 23-15 and advance to the NFC Conference Finals next weekend.
The New Orleans Saints played a much better game on defense as they faced off with the Seattle Seahawks this time, but there were plenty of other problems. It was a hard-fought effort and a really good season, but the road woes have got to stop.
Seattle shouldn’t hope to follow the same route to as their previous victory over New Orleans if they want to advance to the NFC title game next week.
The first time the Seattle Seahawks and New Orleans Saints met in Week 13, it was for NFC Supremacy. Now in Week 19, the true force of the NFC will be revealed.
The Seahawks asserted themselves last night as the top team in the NFC, but Jermaine Wiggins provided what he thinks is the Achilles heel of this Seahawks team.
