Hot, hot, hot!

As the Super Bowl nears and the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks continue to prep for the big game, we couldn't help but take a look at the hot guys on the football teams that helped make it all possible.

From handsome Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson to dreamy Denver Broncos wide receiver Eric Decker, meet a few of the hottest guys playing in Super Bowl XVIII this Sunday.

Eric Decker: The 26-year-old Denver Broncos wide receiver and star of E!'s own Eric and Jessie: Game On recently appeared with his country singer wife Jessie James in a steamy new edition of GQ. Showing off his rock hard bod and killer abs in their photo spread, Decker told the mag he and James wanted to be the first functional couple on reality TV. "We wanted it to be more like a romantic comedy," he said.

Russell Wilson: The 25-year-old Seattle Seahawks quarterback is not only handsome, but he also has heart. He won more games as a starter than any other quarterback in his first two seasons during the Super Bowl era, according to the New York Times, and has had to prove himself continuously throughout his career (At 5'11, he doesn't fit the typical stature of an NFL quarterback). And he did—going from a third round draft pick to a player at the top of his game, known for his playmaking skills and leadership on and off the field.

Golden Tate: The 25-year-old, light-brown eyed Seahawks wide receiver is known as "Showtime Tate," leading the team with 64 receptions for 898 yards and 5 touchdowns this year. And he's ready to put on a show at the Super Bowl. "If it needs to be a scoring fest where we need to air it out, so be it,'' Tate told the Chicago Sun Times. ‘‘This is the perfect game to do that, when the whole world's watching. I believe we're ready to show up.'' We can't wait to see him on the field.

Doug Baldwin: The handsome 25-year-old Seahawks wide receiver recently took up for his fellow player Marshawn Lynch after he caught some slack for avoiding the media. "What is there to get? He doesn't like talking to the media," Baldwin told NBC Sports. "That's not what he's about. I think it's ridiculous that the NFL forces him to do that." Baldwin doesn't mind talking to the media, though. In fact, the hottie has his own YouTube show, The Fresh Files, where he answers questions from fans.

Wesley Woodyard: Known as "The Lumberjack," the 27-year-old Denver Broncos linebacker said he's ready to brave the cold in New York City on game day. "Once you figure out a point in your mind that you're cold, that's when it gets you," he said in a press conference. "So you just have to block it out and be into the moment." Although he's no longer a starter on the team, Woodyard still is leading his fellow players as one of the captains. "My teammates still look to me for guidance and leadership," he told the Denver Post. "That's something that's going to never go away."
