The Chiefs beat both teams this year.

Eh, the starting center for the Pats is likely still out. They have no OL depth. Edelman has a hurt hip. That could bode well for Seattle.

Wilson has a good game.
Defense has a GREAT game.

Seahawks by 20+.

I have a feeling that it's gonna be a lot like last year. It won't be to the tune of 43-8, but 35-21 Seahawks is totally possible. Defenses win championships, and I like the Kam Chancellor-Rob Gronkowski matchup.

I hate Seattle but they win this one running away. The Patriots hype machine is in high gear thanks to spanking a team that didn't belong in the playoffs to begin with. I'm talking to you Indy. I love Andrew Luck, but that team is inconsistent, has a terrible D, and is basically Andrew Luck and a bunch of dudes. If the Ravens Secondary had been at least mediocre, they beat NE. But their secondary is banged up and they had to start a guy that isn't good enough for most teams practice squad. I'm saying it was less than mediocre, and downright terrible. That pretty much paved the way for an easy road to the Superbowl for the Pats. Make no mistake, the physicality of the Hawks will make the Patriots look bad. Seattle by 14.

Yeah, they were picking guys up off random teams' practice squads all year. Then they would get injured, and they'd have to find replacements. I'm really shocked their pass defense was ranked 23rd and not 32nd. I guess Jimmy Smith was in the lineup long enough to make an impact on the rankings, and their defensive line was great enough to hold things down a little bit. I really can't ever remember seeing a worse secondary.

all of the Patriots loses and struggles this year have been on the road away away from Foxboro especially with top defenses.


I give the Patriots a better chance if they have faced the Hawks during the regular season like the Packers. Its hard to beat a top team twice in 1 season because you know what to expect and make adjustments from films........Patriots haven't never faced this defense.

I think one of the advantages the Pats have is that Seattle hasn't faced the Pats this year. Belichick has a fantastic record against opponents first time they meet.

I still think Seattle wins.

It didn't work against Green Bay or Kansas City this year.



Patriots haven't face a defense like this since the 2012 Ravens with Ray Lewis and Ed Reed and not even that defense is in the same level as the Seahawks.

I think the Pats take this one. They can be fairly balanced and for some reason, I think they watch the GB tape, figure it out and do this. Seattle didn't steam roll the Packers like some predicted.
