(Forbes) – After a week of wall-to-wall Deflategate coverage, the NFL hopes to return the focus to the action on the field and the teams involved in the Super Bowl. There have been 298 games this year, including preseason and playoffs, and it comes down to one final contest to crown a champion. The New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks, along with the Denver Broncos, were the betting favorites to reach the Super Bowl in August.
