Q: Adam, with so many weapons on the Denver Broncos offense, who do you think Richard Sherman will cover? Will the Seahawks win the game? -- Tyrell (New York)
A: Great questions, Tyrell. My guess is that Sherman will be on Demaryius Thomas, a matchup of two of the best at what they do. But Seattle has just the type of defensive attack to be able to slow down Denver. It can cover the Broncos' wide receivers man-to-man and still get some help from that great safety tandem, Kam Chancellor and Earl Thomas. I'm picking Denver to win the game. But I think Seattle is the better team, and won’t be surprised one bit if the Seahawks take it.
Q: Adam, how much does Peyton Manning's legacy change if he wins this game? Does it make him the best quarterback ever or simply elevate him in the conversation? -- Reggie (Utah)
