EAST RUTHEFORD, N.J. (AP) — With all hands healthy, the Seattle Seahawks held their final major practice for the Super Bowl against the Denver Broncos.

The Seahawks practiced for 77 minutes at the New York Giants’ practice facility Friday, opening the five doors at the Quest Diagnostics Center to simulate the mid-30s temperatures expected Sunday night.

The NFC champions will hold a walk-through practice Saturday.

Coach Pete Carroll felt the practices have gone well for the Seahawks, who are seeking their first Super Bowl title.

“And now, we wait,” Carroll told a pool reporter.
