On Sunday, the AFC Champion Denver Broncos and NFC Champion Seattle Seahawks will battle for the NFL Championship and there's more than a just a football game on the line for the cities' respective art museums.

The Denver Art Museum and Seattle Art Museum have set up a friendly wager. If the Broncos win, they'll receive a loan of artwork by Tsuji Kako called "Sound of Waves". If the Seahawks win, Denver will send them "The Broncho Buster" by Frederic Remington.

Seattle had originally offered a mask from its North Coast Native American collection but it did not sit well with members of the tribe, so it was changed to the panel work.

The loan would land the artwork at the other museum for three months.

In a museum director's genteel version of trash talk, Seattle's Kimerly Rorschach says she's already making plans to display the Remington.

Denver's Christoph Heinrich is equally confident, saying in a statement: "We know the Broncos won't be busted."

Information from the Associated Press was used in this report.
