SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) – John Madden favors the Denver Broncos in Sunday’s Super Bowl against the Seattle Seahawks. But he told the KCBS Radio morning crew the game could go either way.
“(Seattle is) going to have to get turnovers,” Madden said. “They’re going to have pick some off, get a fumble, get scores that way. And the thing is they’re capable of it because they do that. I think they led the league in turnover ratio, so that’s a strong possibility for them. But in Peyton’s last game — in the championship game — he didn’t have any turnovers.”
Madden said the Seahawks would also benefit if the wind picked up.
“Because they’re more of a running game,” Madden said. “And not only running with Marshawn Lynch, but their ace in that (area) is (quarterback) Russell Wilson. They got a ‘two-fer’ there. Everyone knows about Marshawn Lynch, their running back, and (his) tough running. But Russell Wilson can also give them some plays.” (7:30)
