Super Bowl XLVIII match-up set

Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks will play for the championship

Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos will face the best defence they've met all season when they play Richard Sherman's Seattle Seahawks in the Super Bowl.
    
It will be a matchup between the NFL's No. 1 offence, led by Manning, against the NFL's No. 1 ``D,'' led by Sherman, when the AFC's Broncos (15-3) take on the NFC's Seahawks (15-3) on Feb. 2 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.
    
No upstarts here: Providing quite a cap to the season, this marks only the second time in the last 20 Super Bowls with the No. 1 seeds from both conferences.
    
The Broncos will be trying to win their third Super Bowl title, after 1998 and 1999. The Seahawks are eyeing their first championship.

In the NFC title game, seconds after making the game-saving play to send Seattle to the Super Bowl, cornerback Richard Sherman proved he was just warming up.
    
Sherman deflected a pass intended for San Francisco's Michael Crabtree near the corner of the end zone with less than a minute left, and into the arms of Seattle teammate Malcolm Smith to seal the Seahawks' 23-17 win.
    
Sherman was subsequently whistled for unsportsmanlike conduct on the play, after exchanging words with Crabtree and making what appeared to be a choking gesture.
    
Asked about the incident afterward by FOX reporter Erin Andrews, Sherman stole the show and lit up Twitter with a rant that began: ``I'm the best corner in the game. When you try me with a sorry receiver like Crabtree, that's the result you gonna get. Don't you ever talk about me!''
