Fourteen-time Pro Bowl tight end Tony Gonzalez retired at the end of last season is now working as an NFL analyst for CBS.
The six-time First-Team All-Pro believes Super Bowl XLIX will be a rematch of Super Bowl XLVIII between the Broncos and Seahawks.
"I think it's going to be a Denver-Seattle rematch in the Super Bowl,'' Gonzalez told Newsday. "And I would go with Denver this time.
"Giving Peyton two shots at it, to go against the same team, I'll take Peyton. He didn't have his All-Pro left tackle [Ryan Clady] against them last year and they didn't have their right corner [Chris Harris].''
Denver defeated Seattle 21-16 in both teams' preseason opener on Aug. 7.
The Seahawks host the Broncos in a Week 3 matchup on Sept. 21.
According to Las Vegas sports betting website bovada.lv, the Broncos currently have the best odds of winning the Super Bowl at 13/2.
The Patriots are second at 7/1, followed by the 49ers and Seahawks at 15/2.
"Right now, Denver has a team built just like the New England Patriots back when they went undefeated," Gonzalez said.
"If they can stay healthy, how do you beat this team? They can run, they can pass, they can stop the run and they can stop the pass now on a consistent basis. It's going to be very, very tough to beat them."
The 49ers will get a shot Week 7 in Denver, while the Raiders get two chances: Nov. 9 in Oakland and Dec. 28 in Denver.
