One of the more unique Super Bowl match-ups in the last few years gets underway Sunday evening from New Jersey.
A quick scan of the headlines for this week would include the weather, legalized marijuana, Richard Sherman, Peyton Manning and a general gluttonous worship of the NFL in general. But there's a football game that's gonna be played, too.
Typically, when the league's top-ranked defense (Seattle) takes on the best offense (Denver), the defense wins. Denver, though, is a two-point favorite. It will make for an interesting game, for sure.
