Week 21 Matchup Infoat Denver Broncos (Tough matchup) - There was a howling wind-storm up in Seattle for much of the game during the Divisional round, contributing to very modest passing numbers for Russell Wilson (9/18 for 103 yards passing, zero TDs or interceptions, with three sacks taken for zero yards lost). Doug Baldwin led the team with three targets for 2/30/0 receiving, followed by Jermaine Kearse (one for 1/25/0), Percy Harvin (four for 3/21/0) and Golden Tate (five for just 1/13/0). Wilson followed up with modest numbers in good weather the next week, though, posting 16/25 for 215 yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions vs. San Francisco (and he took four sacks for -22 yards, while rushing five times for zero yards). Baldwin (seven targets for 6/106/0 receiving) led the team vs. San Francisco, while Kearse (five for 2/44/1) handled the TD. Tate (six for 4/31/0) and tight end Zach Miller (three for 3/25/0) kept the chains moving vs. the 49ers. Harvin missed the Conference championship due to concussion but is practicing fully leading into the Super Bowl and should be in the mix again against Denver.
The Broncos' pass D was among the league's most generous during regular season, allowing an average of 254.4 net passing yards per game (27th in the NFL), with 29 passing scores handed out vs. 17 interceptions (tied for 12th in the NFL) and 41 sacks (tied for 13th) generated. However, during the past four games the story has been completely different. Read on.
Terrelle Pryor managed two TD passes (in the fourth quarter, after Denver was up 31-0 at the break) during the season finale (21/38 for 191 net yards, two TDs and zero interceptions thrown) vs. Denver, while Matt Schaub was intercepted twice and threw 18/37 for 153 net yards and one TD vs. Denver during Week 16. Philip Rivers was also held under 200 net yards passing during the Divisional round (18/27 for 194 net yards, with four sacks taken for -23 yards), but he had two TD passes vs. zero interceptions during the 17-24 loss to Denver. Even Tom Brady had an off day at Denver during the Conference Championship, with 24/38 for 256 net yards, but only one TD and zero interceptions (two sacks taken for -21 yards) during a 16-26 New England loss that was never really that close (it was 10-26 in favor of Denver at seven minutes left in the fourth quarter). The Denver defenders are playing inspired football coming into the Super Bowl, friends. CB Champ Bailey has the defensive unit motivated and he is personally playing very well entering this matchup.
Wilson and company have a tough matchup awaiting them on Sunday night.

Game SummariesWeek 3 vs JAX - Jackson may be the best backup QB in the NFL right now. Stepping into the huddle with 4 minutes still left in the 3rd quarter, he was completely in control of the offense and picked up where Russell Wilson left off, shredding the Jacksonville defense. He found a tightly covered Doug Baldwin for a 35 yard score, placing the ball just ahead of him for the diving catch. He also ran one in from five yards out, and with just over one quarter of play, essentially put up half the numbers that Wilson achieved in nearly three.
Week 11 vs MIN - Jackson briefly saw action against his former team, but in garbage time had no real chance to shine, only throwing a couple of very short passes before handing the ball off the rest of the time.
Week 15 at NYG - Jackson had some action in garbage time, attempting and completing one pass. It was play action rollout that gave him time to easily hit a wide open Luke Willson for a first down and more.
