They come with the belief that nobody has it better than them. Seattle is ready to prove them wrong once again. There will be no surprises when these two titans collide Sunday evening.

The challenger enters the ring not close to full strength. Key aspects of their attack and defense are absent, but nothing can diminish their will. Biceps can be kissed. Blows can be landed. Seattle will keep coming. The champ will soon face the reality that their title is at risk. It may be after Kam Chancellor knocks one of their players into the dark ages. It may come when Marshawn Lynch tramples their pride. Or when Doug Baldwin and Richard Sherman take turns tormenting their former college captor. It will come, and when the champ glances upward for salvation, all they will see is 67,000 tormentors who have arrived with the sole purpose of breaking them. There will be no rescue. There will be no backup. There will be no mercy.
