The Seattle Seahawks are one of 14 teams to have never won a Super Bowl.
In 1976, the Seahawks joined the NFL as an expansion team but until this year, the team had only been to the big game once in nearly four decades – in 2005, under Mike Holmgren. That year, they lost Super Bowl XL to the Pittsburgh Steelers, 21-10.
The Denver Broncos have won two Super Bowls. After losing four big games, including three in the 1980s, quarterback John Elway finally led the Broncos to consecutive titles in 1997 and 1998.
Denver beat the defending champion Green Bay Packers 31-24 in Super Bowl XXXII. The next season, Elway was named Super Bowl MVP after leading the Broncos to a 34-19 win over the Atlanta Falcons.

Seahawks star cornerback Richard Sherman led the NFL with eight interceptions during the regular season.
Sherman, whose angry rant after the NFC championship game sparked a national debate over sportsmanship and racial attitudes, was calm, cool and collected at Super Bowl media day.
"People think I'm a loudmouth, an angry guy," Sherman said. "That's a big misconception."

Seahawks' star running back Marshawn Lynch has racked up 249 rushing yards in the postseason, after tallying 1,257 in the regular season. But Lynch, who recently signed an endorsement deal with Skittles, doesn't always rack up big numbers. At Super Bowl media day, he left after just six minutes.
