I didn't know if the NFL app was gonna show the super bowl or if they had other plans for tomorrow. I'm not even sure what all the app actually shows, as so far I've only watched interviews and snippets from NFL Network which I already have through Direct TV. Will there be anything special on the XBONE?

One would think that X1 would have all kinds of special features considering all the NFL marketing. Haven't heard anything though.

It's fun being a multi-sport fan (Superbowl today, Arsenal result this morning, and Super Rugby and 6 nations underway/up and coming). :D

Best of ALL worlds. ;)

I wouldn't call that deal a waste. It's actually pretty smart when you look at how popular the NFL is compared to any other sport in the country. The Super Bowl is today and having them promote your console while millions are watching is good marketing. It sure can't hurt.

[QUOTE="F34R, post: 6294097]Probably is... the amount of stuff they will do with fantasy football alone probably justified it for them.[/QUOTE]

I think the deal was like 400 mil for 5 years. I'm sure they'll get something out of it.

Really? That's disappointing especially after it was announced we could stream games at 60fps and whatnot. I figured they would at least had something going for the biggest game of the year.

It was such a one sided game. I thought Denver would do much better than that.

I'd equate this game like the PS3 sales vs the 360 sales in JPN. :snicker (just to keep it forum relevant lol)

I'm not surprised by the results. The NFC had the most physically dominate teams this year, especially on defense. Denver probably would of lost against any NFC opponent.

They beat several NFC teams in the regular season.

A buddy of mine was rooting for the Broncos and everytime the Seahawks made a big play and/or scored a touchdown I would text him and say go Seahawks! lol

They beat 4 and only one of them was a playoff team. All those teams are in the worst division, which is the NFC East. Denver's defense hasnt been good all season. The top 4 defenses all come from the NFC.

I was talking about top contenders and this particular game. Any of the top NFC teams would of probably beat them. The Panthers, 49rs, Saints and Seattle all have very good defenses. Seattle has the no1 defense but their star players are in the secondary. They basically forced Denver to play their game, which is defending the pass.

[QUOTE="F34R, post: 6294310]Football math doesn't really work. Both teams made it there, and Seattle played better. That's it. This isn't fantasy football. lol[/QUOTE]
lol...NFL math definitely works and it matters. Seattle played better because they are better where it counts the most, which is defense and giving up points. Denver has the no.1 offense but Seattle defense is much better than their offense. That was obvious from the start. No one could predict a blowout like that but its not surprising that seattle would play good defensively.
