This not even a game we played Seahawks better #Titanup

Did you feel that way about Super Bowl XLVIII?
Many Tennessee Titans fans likely reflected back to that matchup earlier in the season against the newly crowned Super Bowl champions. In Week 6, the Titans lost to the Seattle Seahawks 20-13 and prevented quarterback Russell Wilson from throwing any touchdowns during the game.
The Denver Broncos could only score eight points against Seattle. The Seahawks earned the Lombardi Trophy in a lopsided 43-8 victory.
So would the Titans have really done better if they were standing in Denver’s place?This question is purely hypothetical, but it’s one that must’ve popped into the minds of Titans fans, as well as fans of other teams who kept up with the Seahawks earlier in the season.
Let’s not forget that a number of unusual circumstances came into play in Super Bowl XLVIII—the prolific Peyton Manning threw two interceptions. The game started with a safety, and Percy Harvin put the final nail in the coffin with a kick return for a touchdown. However, is it too bold to say that a different AFC team might’ve represented the conference better in the NFL’s biggest game?
