It’s gearing up to be a classic with the NFL’s number offense, the Denver Broncos, battling the league’s number one defense, the Seattle Seahawks. It’s estimated that more than 100 million riveted sets of eyeballs will tune into Fox to catch the matchup, with a large swath of the population joining together for Super Bowl parties, cookouts and all around football fun.
