Super Bowl 2014 Super bowl

Each week during the regular season, I took at look at the Giants' media notes for the upcoming opponent.

With one week of footbal to go, here is a look at the Super Bowl media notes for both the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks,

The Broncos were hand down the best offense in the NFL this year, and the Seahawks were hands down the best defense. That should make for a great game Sunday.

There?s been so much hype already about the Harbaugh brothers facing each other in the Super Bowl that it has clouded another famous sibling rivalry: the Manning brothers.

Though their respective teams will not be playing in the big game this season, imagine if the brothers meet in the 2014 Super Bowl.

The Giants and Broncos will be playing in the 2013 regular season, since Big Blue will be playing the AFC West this season.

Bart Hubbuch writes in today's New York Post that the backlash has already started. Included in the concerns are everything from cold weather to what the Tampa Tribune calls, "... a slushy path by a commissioner determined to reward New York for building a new home for the Giants and Jets."
