Super Bowl XLVIII: Allyus Fritz, Lee Muntz, local coaches say who they think will take home the Lombardi Trophy Sunday.
None of these predictions were in favor of the Seattle Seahawks. Super Bowl XLVIII will be played Sunday at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. Denver is favored by 2.5 points. Denver beat the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship game, while Seattle defeated the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championship game. Denver is 2-4 all-time in the Super Bowl. Seattle is 0-1 and was defeated by the Pittsburgh Steelers 21-10 in the 2006 Super Bowl.
Allyus Fritz- Ledger sports editor
How it will happen: Peyton Manning throws a go ahead touchdown in the closing minutes to Eric Decker. Champ Bailey seals the win with an interception in the final minute.
Lee Muntz- KMCD sports director
How it will happen: Manning throws a game winning touchdown pass to rally the Broncos to a dramatic win. Richard Sherman is left shaking his head as Denver celebrates.
Mick Flattery- Fairfield basketball coach
How it will happen: Air-Manning continues in Jersey. Pete Carroll may wish he was back at USC.
Matt Schenck- Fairfield football offensive coordinator
How it will happen: Peyton will use 28 Omaha’s to lead the Broncos to the championship, and he then will retire shortly after the Super Bowl, going out on top.
Tyler Miklo- Fairfield football defensive coordinator
How it will happen: I hope Denver is able to dominate the game and Peyton Manning can secure his legacy as the second greatest quarterback of all time, behind Joe Montana!
Joe Donovan- Pekin football coach
How it will happen: With Peyton Manning having played in a Super Bowl already he will have his teammates prepared for the big game. Nobody is talking about the Broncos defense, and they rise to the occasion (hopefully).
