For Sunday's battle of the trenches, "Pot Roast" is making it personal.

Broncos defensive lineman Terrance Knighton detailed his upcoming clash with Seahawks center Max Unger in Super Bowl XLVIII, revealing how he'll go to great lengths to find trash talk material.

“Today I’ll start Googling him and doing all types of stuff to guide out his personal life,” Knighton said, via Profootballtalk.com. “I want to know everything about him. Just everything, from his favorite food to his favorite color, where he grew up at, how many siblings he has. I want to know everything about him, and I’ll probably talk a little smack Sunday. I have a lot of respect for him. He’s the middle of their offense, and I take pride in being the middle of our defense. So it’s going to come down to that matchup really with a team that likes to run the ball. I’m pretty sure he’s studying me right now, and I’ll be studying him as soon as I leave here. May the best man win.”

For the more important elements of the game, Knighton says he's watched a lot of tape to see how the "crafty" Unger has fared against other defensive linemen.

“He’s a good player. He’s real crafty. He knows a lot of tricks of the trade of trying to influence you to do certain things." Knighton said. "I’ve just been watching him over and over, and trying to figure out what he’s thinking about, and how other guys in the league have been successful. Arizona played them pretty well, their defensive front. I’ve just been watching a lot of guys, watching as much as I can.”

All eyes will be on Russell Wilson and Marshawn Lynch when the Seahawks are on offense, but the Knighton-Unger matchup is intriguing in its own right. Both players are among the best at their respective positions, and figure to lay it all on the line for the Lombardi Trophy.
