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).

The Broncos had five players with at least 500 receiving yards this season: Demaryius Thomas (1,430), Eric Decker (1,288), Julius Thomas (788), Wes Welker (778) and Knowshon Moreno (548).

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?
