Who is better, Denver or Seattle? Watch our live chat before Super Bowl XLVIII

It's one of the most anticipated Super Bowl games in some time: Peyton Manning and the high-powered offense of the Denver Broncos against big-play cornerback Richard Sherman and the stifling defense of the Seattle Seahawks.

Tune in at 2:30 p.m. Pacific time, an hour before kickoff, for a live chat as Times sports editor Mike James talks with staff writers Sam Farmer and Gary Klein, who are on site in MetLife Stadium, to get the latest information on Super Bowl XLVIII.

You'll also have the chance to send in questions for Sam and Gary on our Google Hangout. They've spent the week going over all facets of this game. 

Can Peyton Manning out-finesse the Richard Sherman-led Legion of Boom defense? Can the Seahawks offense stay on the field long enough to keep the ball out of Manning's hands?

Who's going to emerge from the shadows to be a surprise factor in what has become the biggest single-day event in sports?

Will the weather be a factor at all? That's been one of the big stories since it was first announced that the Super Bowl would be held outdoors in a cold-weather climate.
