10 things to know about Super Bowl XLVIII

Super Bowl XLVIII is finally here.

The Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos were the NFL’s top teams from their respective conferences. It’s fitting that the Broncos’ top-ranked offense will face the Seahawks’ top-ranked defense to determine who are truly the ‘Champs.’

As expected, the build up to the big game has been overwhelming. Both teams are filled with players who are among the best at their position. Some are the best. Peyton Manning had what many viewed as the greatest season a NFL quarterback has ever had. Richard Sherman led the NFL with eight interceptions.

TheGrio.com has compiled a list of 10 things to know about Sunday’s matchup.
