We know who will take the MetLife Stadium field for Super Bowl XLVIII, with the Denver Broncos winning the AFC championship on Sunday and the Seattle Seahawks taking the NFC. But how well do you know your Super Bowl past -- as in, how easily can you rattle off the participants in the 15 most recent big games? Needless to say, not all 32 franchises have had the privilege. Take our quiz to see if you know which teams have!

Pick 'Em: Harbaugh vs. Carroll

The Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers are about as evenly matched as two NFL teams can be, as evidenced by their intimidating defenses, quick-strike offenses and young superstar quarterbacks. The NFL's best rivalry (says SportsNation) also features two personable head coaches who have figured out how to bond with both their players and the media. Rick Reilly has broken down the similarities and differences in his latest column, but now it's up to you to make the hard choices. For example, which coach could sell you four ShamWows (wait, make that eight ShamWows!) for $19.99 if you call right now?
