The most compelling matchup in Super Bowl XLVIII is the Seattle Seahawks' Legion of Boom secondary versus the Peyton Manning-led Denver Broncos offense that set an NFL record for points scored in a single season.

This is considered to be a battle of strength versus strength, but the reality of the situation is the Seahawks defense has a number of potential weak spots that the Broncos offense could be able to target with success.

What is most surprising is Richard Sherman is among those players Denver should be able to target.
