The Super Bowl is the most keenly awaited annual event in US sporting calendar. It is the played between the champions of the American Football Conference (AFC) and the National Football Conference (NFC).

Hence, it is the Seattle Seahawks who will play New England Patriots at the University of Phoenix Stadium, Arizona in the XLIX Super Bowl on the 1st of February after they won the NFC and AFC titles respectively.

So they are the best teams in their league this season, which calls for a huge contest between the two.

Both the teams are gearing up for the mega spectacle, which will eventually decide the champions.

Both teams are known for situational football and one will not be wrong to say they have been the best at it.

Talking about the same, one of the key players for the Seahawks, Russel Wilson said: "It's the difference in the game,"

"It's the difference in winning and losing. It's what helps define your team. Knowing exactly what the situation is and what to do in that situation in a football game is how you build consistency.

"Coach Carroll preaches it from day 1."

Both coahes, Pete Carroll and Bill Belichick, are known for their understanding of the game, so both of them will try to figure out strategies to outdo their opponents in the mega event.

"Coach Belichick is very detailed in situational football," Patriots cornerback Darrelle Revis was quoted as saying by SB Nation.

"He gets us to understand each situation. He talks about it all of the time. You can't play this game at a high level unless you have a clear education of what to do in particular game situations.

The cornerback might have played under a number of coaches in the league, but praises Belichick as one of the best.

''I have played for four NFL head coaches, including Eric Mangini, Rex Ryan and Greg Schiano, before coming here. Coach Belichick is the best I have ever had at coaching situational football."

The match may finally boil to how both these teams prepare for the game. They might have strategies in place, which the respective coaches might have chalked out, but it is a different game all together in the centre.

There will be pressure on both the sides to win the prestigious title and with a full crowd in attendance at the University of Phoenix Stadium, Arizona, the players cannot afford to crumble after being best in their respective AFC and NFC competitions.

Seattle Seahawks might be under more pressure as they are the champions after defeating the Denver Brancos in last year's Superbowl.They thrashed their opponents 43-8.
