Super Bowl by the Numbers.

Have you ever noticed that the NFL is the only professional sports league to number their Championship Game?  Well in light of that fact, I thought I would share a few numbers associated with this game.

Since the NFL loves numbering their big game, I thought I'd throw out a few interesting numbers associated with Super Bowl XLVII.

0 - The number of winning seasons before this one that Denver Broncos defensive tackle Terrance Knighton had in college (Temple - 10 total wins in four years) and in four previous seasons in the pros with Jacksonville.

1 - Peyton Manning is the only player on either team with a Super Bowl ring.  Three Broncos and zero Seattle Seahawks have ever even been in the game.

1 - The Broncos had the No. 1 offense in the NFL this season, while the Seahawks had the No. 1 defense in the NFL, along with the most interceptions.

1 - This will be the first time since 2003 that the winner of the Super Bowl will finish with the best record in the NFL.  Both teams are 15-3, including playoffs.

6 - This will be the sixth time in the last eight years where either a Manning (Peyton or Eli) or a Harbaugh (Jim or John) is in the Super Bowl.

14 - Seattle safety Earl Thomas was taken 14th overall in the 2010 draft with a pick traded to them by the Broncos during the 2009 draft.  Denver took cornerback Alphonso Smith (12 tackles in 15 career games) with the 2009 pick obtained from Seattle.  And you thought drafting Tim Tebow was the dumbest thing Josh McDaniel's ever did.

30 - The Super Bowl will be the 30th consecutive time that the Broncos are favored.

07073 - That's the zip code for East Rutherford, New Jersey where the Super Bowl will be played in MetLife Stadium.  It's not in New York.

82,556 - Seating capacity for MetLife Stadium.  Ticket prices are ranging from $2,000 to $25,000 on secondary markets.

$4,000,000. - The average price of a 30-second ad during Super Bowl XLVIII.

164,100,000 - Number of Americans who watched last year's Super Bowl, which made it the most-watched show in television history.

$550,000,000. - That's the projected economic impact for the NY/NJ region for hosting the big game.
