Super Bowl XLVIII between the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks will have the fewest players with previous experience than any championship since 1982, reports

Furthermore, Peyton Manning is the only player on either roster who has actually won a Super Bowl.

The 37-year-old quarterback has taken a lot of criticism in the past for having won just a solitary title, but this year he stands alone as the only participant that already owns a ring.

Three of Manning's Broncos team-mates - Wes Welker, Jacob Tamme, and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie - have lost the end game once, while their opponents, the Seahawks have an entire team without ANY experience.

It's the first time since the Buffalo Bills in 1990, that has been the case, but this matchup - between the best two teams in the NFL all season - still promises to be an entertaining encounter.

"I think there are enough young players in that locker room that can get some information from guys that have been through it before," said Broncos coach John Fox, in an interview with The Denver Post.

"There are a lot of things you deal with during these two weeks."

The numerous distractions and media commitments in the build up to the title game could have even more of an impact on this inexperienced field. They could do a lot worse than follow Manning's lead.
