Knighton said he was impressed with the quality of Wilson's play, considering the Seattle quarterback is such a young player.
"Each week he's getting better and better. He's one of those guys who doesn't turn the ball over," Knighton said.
'Low' ticket prices
Weather concerns may cause the average ticket price for Sunday's game to be the lowest since the 2002 Super Bowl, according to secondary-market ticket aggregator SeatGeek. Resale prices are down 40 percent compared with the 24 hours after the conference championships.
The average price paid for a Super Bowl ticket over the weekend was $2,056, making it "increasingly likely" that it will be the least expensive game since the New England Patriots beat the St. Louis Rams in the 2002 title game in New Orleans, SeatGeek said in a statement.
The average ticket price is $3,020, 26 percent less than the high two days after the conference championships, and the least expensive is $1,392, according to ticket aggregator TiqIQ.
Giants owner Jonathan Tisch, who helped bring an outdoor Super Bowl to a cold-weather site, wants the NFL to hold the game in the New York-New Jersey area every 10 years.
He said Monday this year's Super Bowl is expected to generate $550 million to $600 million for the region. He insists cold-weather sites can handle football's biggest event.
At a news conference, host committee chief executive All Kelly said about 65,000 people plan to use mass transit to get to the game. He added that $11 million has been raised to improve after-school facilities in New York and New Jersey.
Marijuana as medicine
Colorado and Washington have legalized recreational marijuana, so the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks meeting in the Super Bowl has made the issue of marijuana laws a buzzworthy topic this week. Twenty states and the District of Columbia have legalized medicinal use.
Seahawks coach Pete Carroll was asked Monday about exploring the value of medicinal marijuana use in the NFL, and he was open to the idea.
"The fact that it's in the world of medicine is obviously something [NFL commissioner Roger Goodell] realizes, and him making the expression that we need to follow the information and the research, absolutely, I'm in support of," Carroll said.
"Regardless of what other stigmas may be involved, I think we have to do this because the world of medicine is trying to do the exact same thing and figure it out and they're coming to some conclusions."
Seahawks fullback Michael Robinson shared a similar reaction. He said he's in favor of anything that helps players.
"I think anything that can make our job a little easier without sacrificing our health at the same time is good for the league, it's good for players," Robinson said. "I'm all for alternative forms of recovery and all those types of things - hyperbaric chambers, ozoning, whatever it may be."
Jersey state of mind
One day after Carroll was reminded that he's returning to New Jersey - not New York - for the Super Bowl, the Seahawks coach opened his Monday news conference with a mix of levity and contrition.
"First I'd like to say it's really great to be here in New Jersey," he said.
Both the Seahawks and the Broncos are staying in Jersey City. The Seahawks are practicing at the Giants facility in East Rutherford. The Broncos are practicing at the Jets facility in Florham Park. Although most of the Super Bowl events are in New York, neither team has an organized function in Manhattan.
