Matt Prater finally back on his feet, will practice today

Super Bowl Broncos Prater Football AP

Broncos kicker Matt Prater needed the week between the conference championship games and Super Bowl, but not to recover from anything football-related.

Prater’s finally able to practice again today, after sitting out last week to recover from a virus.

Hopefully, in another day or two, I’ll be back to normal,” Prater said, via Mike Klis of the Denver Post. “I got some kind of flu or something. It started to come on Tuesday night.

“When I woke up Wednesday morning, I felt like I got run over by a truck.”

Prater’s been exceptional this season for the Broncos, missing just a pair of field goals (30-of-32) and recording touchbacks on 75 percent of his kicks. Altitude helps with some of that, but when he’s well, he’s as good as they come.

    Seattle will get a different result than the last time they were in the Big Show, for 2 reasons:
    1. They’re the better team.
    2. When it comes to winning big games, Manning is no Big Ben.

    Denver’s experience will decide this game. Seattle has a bunch of goof balls. Starting with Pete Carroll. Texas wants to thank Pete for freezing up in the Big Game.

    Broncos win because:
    1: They’re the better team.
    2: well… there is no number 2.

    Manning has more success in big games in one superbowl than the entire seahawks roster.

    Best kicker in the league. No one else is even close.
