Today we are going to take a break from looking at Houston Texans headlines and look at some of the headlines from Super Bowl XLVIII before the big game kicks off tonight between the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks.

We might as well start out with a link from about everything we need to know about the Super Bowl for today.

• Here is a fun article from CBS Sports and 48 things we need to know about Super Bowl XLVIII.

One of the things “we need to know” from the article is:

"“18: Pete Carroll says he’s not worried that no one on his roster has ever appeared in a Super Bowl. The last time that happened: The 1990 Buffalo Bills, who lost to the New York Giants 20-19 in the “wide right” game.”"

Hey, I said the list was fun. has a good article by John Clayton about Super Bowl trends.

"“The Broncos run one of the most complex offenses in football. To have any chance at success, the Seahawks have had to spend two weeks studying tendencies and figuring out alignments.”"

One of my other favorite parts of the article is where Clayton writes about some other Super Bowl facts including:

"“The 2007 New England Patriots, who averaged 36.8 points a game and had a perfect regular season, lost in the Super Bowl to the New York Giants.”"

Remember that Super Bowl? That had to be a rough day to be a Patriots fan.

• Here is a story on the Ultimate Texans blog from the Houston Chronicle about how former Rice tight end Luke Willson is going to be in the Super Bowl with the Seahawks.

The article said:

"“Willson will become the seventh Rice player to play in a Super Bowl, joining Rodrigo Barnes, O.J. Brigance, Earl Cooper, Darryl Grant, Courtney Hall and Larry Izzo.”"

• Here are Super Bowl predictions from Between 12 writers on their site, the Seahawks are predicted to win nine times.

• Peter King of The MMQB has a good article on Peyton Manning titled, “A Unique Day And Night.”

King wrote:

"“How would Denver offensive coordinator Adam Gase and quarterback Peyton Manning handle the borderline impenetrable Seattle secondary? That’s the key to Super Bowl XLVIII.”"
