The combatants for Super Bowl XLVIII were decided on championship Sunday.

The Denver Broncos will represent the AFC after Peyton Manning threw for 400
yards and two touchdowns and the Broncos defeated the New England Patriots
26-16. Manning completed 32-of-43 passes for the Broncos, who will appear in
their seventh Super Bowl. Manning is 5-4 in his last nine matchups --
including the postseason -- against Tom Brady after dropping the first six
meetings between the two future Hall-of-Fame quarterbacks. The two superstars
have now both won a pair of home playoff games against one another. Demaryius
Thomas had seven receptions for 134 yards and a touchdown for Denver.

The Seattle Seahawks will be the NFC's representative after Russell Wilson
threw a 35-yard touchdown pass to Jermaine Kearse in the fourth quarter to
help the Seahawks claim a 23-17 win over the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC
Championship Game. Malcolm Smith intercepted 49ers quarterback Colin
Kaepernick in the end zone in the final minute to seal Seattle's second Super
Bowl trip.
