Who is going to win Super Bowl XLVIII? That’s a good question. On the one hand, Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos offense broke every major offensive record this year. On the other hand, Richard Sherman and the Seattle Seahawks secondary were historically good. So, me? I’m not prepared to make the call. It could be the Seahawks, but it could be the Broncos.
Here’s a call I am willing to make, though: this year’s Super Bowl has one of the finest WAG lineups in recent memory. And I should know, because I’ve ranked the Super Bowl WAGs for the last two years.
So, are you ready to see the hottest player wives and girlfriends of Super Bowl XLVIII? Yeah, I thought so. Let’s get started…
Richard Sherman may be enemy number one among American sports fans right now, but he can't be that bad if he's managed to hold on to a pretty woman like Ashely Lillian, right?
Not buying that? Well, whatever. Point is, this is Richard Sherman's girlfriend. Apparently she used to be a waitress in Seattle. I don't know if that's where they met, but I don't think she's bringing people baskets of wings anymore.

Colin Kaepernick is a ladies man with a ton of tattoos who chronicles his epic shoe collection on Instagram. Meanwhile, Russell Wilson is a clean-cut Virginia boy who married his high school sweetheart—Ashton Meem—before he even took one snap in the NFL. And it's this contrast that will make this such a great rivalry going forward.
Oh, and yes, Ashton is very attractive.

Nina Heisser isn't married to Seahawks cornerback Earl Thomas, but she's more than just a girlfriend. Nina gave birth to their first child about 15 minutes before the infamous Seahawks-Packers "Fail Mary" game last year.

Janine Williams used to play volleyball at the University of Florida, which is where she met Seattle wide receiver Percy Harvin. Though she later transferred to Central Floriday University, the two stayed together and eventually had a son.

A classy guy like Peyton Manning deserves a gorgeous, classy woman like Ashley here. The two started dating the summer before Peyton's freshman year at Tennessee and got married in Memphis in 2001. Now they have two kids, fame, success, and a hell of a lot of money.

Broncos defensive tackle Mitch Unrein isn't dating some chick who gets by on her looks alone. No, he's dating Corey Cogdell who, in addition to being attractive, is also an Olympic bronze medalist in trap shooting.
Unfortunately, dating Corey comes with a bit of controversy. You see, in addition to shooting inanimate objects, Cogdell is also an avid hunter. And she doesn't just hunt deer other things that most people can get behind. She goes after big game like bears and zebras, which has understandably drawn a lot of ire from the anti-hunting crown.

Golden Tate may be a bit of a turd on the field, but off the field he's a Notre Dame grad with a blonde bombshell of a girlfriend. Obviously the Seattle wide receiver is doing something right.

Leah Harris (right) is the wife of Broncos cornerback Chris Harris. The two met in college at Kansas, and she stuck by him when he went undrafted in 2011. Now the two are living the good life in Denver and on their way to the Super Bowl.

The tattoos aren't for everyone, I know, but even if you don't care for girls with tons of ink you have to admit Charmaine is pretty hot.
So who is she dating? Why, that would be Mr. Beast Mode himself, Seattle RB Marshawn Lynch.
Actually, I have no idea if they are still dating, but rumor has it she is Marshawn's baby mama. So if nothing else their legally linked for the rest of their lives.

Anna Burns Welker made our list a few years ago as a Patriots WAG. Now she makes it again as a Broncos WAG.
Of course, you may recall that last year Mrs. Welker made headlines for ranting about Ray Lewis (and his scumbad past) on Facebook, for which she later apologized. This year I suspect that, even if the Broncos lose, she'll probably keep her (virtual) mouth shut.

As you may or may not know, Jessie James is a country pop music singer-songwriter. I have no idea if she's any good, but I know for damn sure that she is incredibly gorgeous and married to Broncos wide receiver Eric Decker. That lucky bastard.

If you search Google for "Sydney Rice girlfriend" the results will all be stories about this mystery woman spotted with Rice on a Miami beach back in 2011. The big deal? People said she looked like Tiger's ex Elin Nordegren.
In any case, as it turns out Rice is actually dating an extremely hot woman named Britney Smith. I don't know for sure what she does for a living, but if I had to guess I'd say she was a club promotor in Miami. Check her out on Twitter and see for yourself.

Champ Bailey used to be married to a woman named Hanaday Bailey, and Google seems to think he still is. However, they've been divorced for a while now, and Bailey is actually dating ridiculously hot pinup model Jessica Herrera, who is know professionally as either Jessica Maximus or Jesikah Maximus.
I chose this photo from Jessica's Twitter feed to show you here because it demonstrates her passion for Bailey's Broncos. If you want to see her more racy shots, that's as easy as typing "Jessica Maximus" into Google.
In any case, I think it's safe to say that, with Ms. Maximus on their side, the Broncos just won the WAG Bowl, no?
