NFL Poll: Over/Under 288.5 Passing Yards for Peyton Manning in SB48?
In 18 games through the NFC Championship Game, the Seahawks have allowed only five quarterbacks to throw for at least 200 passing yards.
Of those five 200-yard passers, only two of them had at least 300 yards. Back in Week 4, Houston's Matt Schaub threw for 355 yards, the most allowed by the Seahawks this year, and New Orleans' Drew Brees threw for 309 yards against them in the Divisional Round of the playoffs.
Earlier in the season, Brees threw for only 147 yards against the Seahawks on Monday Night Football.
With three All-Pro players (Richard Sherman, Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor) in the Legion of Boom, the Seahawks allowed a league-low 172.0 passing yards per game in the regular season. In addition, they allowed a league-low 5.8 yards per attempt and intercepted a league-high 28 passes while allowing only 16 passing touchdowns.
As great as the Seahawks pass defense is, the Broncos passing offense is equally as explosive.
Not only did Peyton Manning break the single-season records for passing yards (5,477) and touchdowns (55), he threw for 400-plus yards in five games counting last week's playoff win. Manning has thrown for at least 300 passing yards in 13 games counting the playoffs. On the other hand, he was held to less than 200 passing yards only once (regular-season matchup at Patriots).
In a strength-versus-strength matchup, how many passing yards will Peyton have against the Seahawks? Based on prop bets from Sportsbook.com, the over/under for Manning is 288.5 yards ... will he go over or under?
