Whose fans are most confident of Super Bowl glory?

Of the eight teams still in Super Bowl contention, whose fans are the most confident of making it all the way?

If searching for airline tickets to Super Bowl-site New Orleans is any indication, then Broncos and Patriots fans top the list.  According to the travel site Kayak.com, since the start of the post-season, online searches for tickets to New Orleans increased by about 6,000 percent in Denver and Boston.  That’s the most of any of the eight cities whose teams still have a shot.

However, if you look at Kayak.com’s data for the period right after the playoff games last Sunday, Seattle saw the biggest jump in searches for tickets to the Big Easy — a 4,645 percent increase.  Seahawks fans’ confidence is clearly running high right now.

So let’s here from you, Seattleites — who’s already booked a flight to New Orleans?
