The NFL season in 160 seconds
If you're not yet fatigued of talk about Peyton Manning's legacy or Richard Sherman's infamous postgame rant, well, you probably will be soon. These stories and others will be thoroughly hashed and rehashed approximately a gazillion times during this week's lead-up to the highly anticipated Super Bowl XLVIII showdown between the Broncos and Seahawks.
But let us not forget how we got here. Long before the Manning-led Broncos knocked off Tom Brady and the Pats in the AFC Championship Game, and long before Sherman became a household name for his memorable postgame tirade, the season was like any other: full of hope for all 32 teams and rife with compelling narratives around the league.
In case you lived under a rock since September, here's a 160-second crash course in how we got here -- the biggest stories and notable twists and turns -- during what has been yet another memorable NFL campaign.
