Super Bowl Preview

Super Bowl Preview

Super Bowl Sunday is around the corner and both teams are ready to hit the field.

Broncos head coach John Fox says it will all come down to which team performs best.

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll and Fox agree the outcome will hinge on the match between Denver's powerhouse offense and Seattle's top-ranked defense.

Carroll says he's focused on supporting his players to make sure his team is the best it can possibly be.

Fox says it's important to remember that football is a team game, from the big players to the unknown guy who makes a critical play.

The Seahawks and Broncos will battle it out Sunday at New Jersey's MetLife Stadium.

Both Fox and Carroll were asked if there was some aspect on the other's team that they wished they had. Fox wouldn't elaborate, saying only that he admires Seattle's secondary, while Carroll said he'd love to have Denver's scoring ability.

"We'd like to have their points," said Carroll with a nod to Fox sitting
nearby. "How many did you score, like 800? That would help out our defense."

The coaches shared a microphone as reporters asked questions and were seated
with the Lombardi Trophy between them.

"The trophy really does symbolize the ultimate challenge in coaching and our
profession," stated Carroll, who will be a head coach in the Super Bowl for
the first time.

Fox will coach in his second Super Bowl, having guided Carolina to the contest
after the 2003 season.

Super Bowl Rookies

It's the first Super Bowl trip for many Broncos. Only four players on their current roster have experience in a Super Bowl.

Head coach John Fox is encouraging the veterans to share their experiences to guide the rookies.

Peyton Manning, Wes Welker, cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and tight end Jacob Tamme have previously played in the big game with their past teams.

The Broncos themselves have not been to a championship game since the late 90's. The Broncos take on the Seahawks this weekend.

Big Voices

Soprano vocalist Renee Fleming says she's thrilled to sing the national anthem at the Super Bowl on Sunday.

It's a Super Bowl first for an opera singer.

Fleming says she applauds the NFL for doing something different this year.

Hawaiian pop star Bruno Mars will perform at the half time show along with Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Bruno Mars is hoping to heat up the chilly temperatures expected on Sunday. 

At a pre-Bowl press conference in New York Thursday, the pop star shared that while he's not big on spectacle, he's good at getting people up on their feet.
