Seahawks and Broncos book places in final

DENVER Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning has the chance to cap a record-breaking season when his team takes on Seattle in Super Bowl XLVIII in Brooklyn on February 2.

The 16-season veteran led the Broncos to a 26-16 win at home against the New England Patriots yesterday, before watching the Seahawks come from behind to down the San Francisco 49ers 23-17 in a bruising affair in Seattle.

The 49ers had the chance to snatch victory in the final seconds, but a pass from quarterback Colin

Kaepernick was intercepted by Richard Sherman in the end zone.

Manning (pictured), who won his only Super Bowl ring with Indianapolis in the 2006 season, said he would not take the opportunity for granted.

"Being in my 16th season, going to my third Super Bowl, I know how hard it is to get there," the 37-year-old said.
