This year’s edition of the Superbowl is sure to be an exciting game. Even with only two teams playing, there are still many factors that will affect who will win this great game. These factors include player injuries, team statistics, and even what the referees end up calling on certain plays. One of the most important things in football is momentum, and because of this it is very difficult to predict who will win the Superbowl. This year’s favorites are likely to give their team a greater chance at victory, but there are other teams that will give them a run for their money.
The favorite team going into this match up is the Pittsburgh Steelers. They have had an amazing season so far, losing only two games to the New England Patriots and the Baltimore Ravens. These teams are also seen as contenders for this year’s Superbowl so you can imagine how strong their season must have been. They have an impressive quarterback who is widely considered one of the best if not the best in Ben Roethlisberger. They also have Jerome Bettis, an experienced running back who will be attending his last super bowl. There are, however, some concerns with this team going into the big game. Half of their wins have come from teams that are also seeing as front-runners for this year’s Superbowl such as the Patriots and Ravens. They were also fortunate enough to face the Cleveland Browns, a team that is having some problems with their offense. The Steelers will have to work hard against the Seattle Seahawks on February 5th in order to make it all the way to the Superbowl.
Eagles – They had an amazing season and are looking to take home the trophy
Two other teams that are seen as strong contenders for this year’s Superbowl are the Philadelphia Eagles and the Seattle Seahawks. The Philadelphia Eagles started off their season very well, beating division rivals Dallas Cowboys in week 2.
They also managed to beat a team that was seen as a tough competitor in the New York Giants. However they did manage to lose against teams that are not so strong such as the Washington Redskins. Despite this their team is very solid and they have a great quarterback in Donovan McNabb who will be attending his 4th Superbowl. Although some would say he has yet to win one, this year’s Eagles have a very good chance at bringing home the trophy.
Steelers – No one is undefeated and there are other contenders in the mix
Many people are saying that the Seahawks are one of the most serious contenders for this year’s Superbowl. The reason being is that they have a very solid team, with their quarterback Matt Hasselbeck having an impressive record at 9-4. They also have Shaun Alexander who was once ranked number one in rushing yards, and is considered to be in the top three in this category. However, there are things that might hold them back in this game against the Steelers. They have yet to face a team like Pittsburgh who is having an amazing season and has won many games against other contenders for this year’s Superbowl. This will be the first time that they will play at the super bowl so they have the element of surprise, but it will be a very difficult task to face a team as strong as Pittsburgh.
how many superbowls have the seahawks been in
The Seattle Seahawks have been to two Super Bowls. The first was during the 2005 season, in which they lost 21-10 to the Pittsburgh Steelers and their rookie quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. They went back to the Super Bowl in 2013, this time against the Denver Broncos and Peyton Manning. This time they came out victorious by a score of 43-8.
