About 80% of the experts predicted the Broncos to win. About 99% of the fans here predicted the Broncos to win. Some thought the Seahawks were just the NFC version of the Chiefs. Many didn't think they belonged, that they were like the '98 Falcons, not the best team in the NFC. All they had was a defense that faced bad offenses, not anything close to an offense like ours. etc., etc.
