The Seattle Seahawks enter Super Bowl XLVIII as the first team without a single player to have played in a previous Super Bowl since the Buffalo Bills in Super Bowl XXV on Jan. 27, 1991. How did the inexperienced Bills fare in the Big Game? They lost to the New York Giants 20-19 in Tampa, Fla. The Bills had an opportunity to win, but kicker Scott Norwood missed a 47-yard field goal in the final seconds. Wide right. The loss was the first of four straight Super Bowl defeats for Buffalo. As for the Denver Broncos, they have four players on their roster with Super Bowl experience -- quarterback Peyton Manning, wide receiver Wes Welker, cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and tight end Jacob Tamme.
