Peyton Manning recorded his first National Football League playoff win in four years, helping the Denver Broncos set up a showdown with the New England Patriots and Tom Brady for a spot in the Super Bowl.
Greg Cosell, a senior producer at NFL Films Inc. and a nephew of the late sportscaster Howard Cosell, said in an interview on Bloomberg Television’s “Political Capital With Al Hunt,” airing this weekend before Sunday night’s Super Bowl in New Orleans, that he expects the Baltimore Ravens to defeat the San Francisco 49ers in a defense-minded football championship game.
Private equity firm founder Bradford Freeman made it onto the field for one play as a Stanford University scholarship football player and jokes that he is “the highest-paid student-athlete, per minute, in history.”
The San Francisco 49ers are unified behind coach Jim Harbaugh, former quarterback Ron Jaworski says. They take that solid approach into the Super Bowl as Las Vegas oddsmakers’ four-point favorites to beat the Baltimore Ravens.
San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh declined to name tomorrow’s starting quarterback at New Orleans, saying “there’s no competitive advantage for us to release that information, for our organization or for our team.”
