The Denver Broncos arrived at Newark Liberty International Airport on Sunday afternoon amid scattered flurries and temperatures in the low 20s. And they brought loads of enthusiasm and a healthy respect of the Seattle Seahawks with them.
Quarterback Peyton Manning, who seemingly always makes news for his presnap communication, talked of his admiration for how the Seahawks defense stays in sync.
“Looking at their defense, they are as good as advertised,” Manning said. “What’s probably one of the more impressive things is how well they play together as a unit. You see them communicating out there on the field and safeties talking to each other, linebackers talking to the corners; that’s not always true for every defense. It’s a big part of their success.
“You combine that with just a lot of talent out there on the defensive side of the ball and, to me, that’s why they’re such a good defense.”
Seattle boasts the NFL’s No. 1 defense in scoring (14.4 points a game) and total yards allowed (273.6 yards a game).
