John Elway received a three-year extension as the Denver Broncos’ executive vice president of football operations after a season in which the team reached the Super Bowl for the first time in 15 years.
Quarterback Russell Wilson and his Seattle Seahawks teammates came to the New York area and won not only the Super Bowl but, in the part that matters to companies seeking athlete endorsers, the hearts and minds of those watching on television.
The Seattle Seahawks captured their first Super Bowl since joining the National Football League in 1976 with a 43-8 rout of the Denver Broncos, the biggest margin of victory by an underdog in the game’s 48-year history.
Greg Cosell, a professional football expert and senior producer at NFL Films Inc., said in an interview on Bloomberg Television’s “Political Capital with Al Hunt,” airing this weekend, that he expects the Denver Broncos will win a close Super Bowl game on Feb. 2 on the strength of Peyton Manning, who he called probably the best quarterback in history.
The Seattle Seahawks lead the Denver Broncos 36-8 entering the final quarter at the Super Bowl, after their defense forced three turnovers in stopping the National Football League’s top-ranked offense.
