This is a tough one to decide, but I will go Pats in a very close game, 27-23.
when was the last time someone hung 27 on Seattle?

I'll be surprised if this is lopsided or a high scoring game. I don't think it will be like last year, not at all. Of course, I've been wrong before!

I am more impressed that right now, there have been 100 votes and it is split right down the middle: 50-50!

And, nope, I'm not casting a tie-breaker right now.

But to your point, since Brady can't do it with his legs, it's all on his arm (especially if the running game doesn't go anywhere). He has to be spot on because these teams are so evenly matched, and becuase Wilson poses a multiple threat.
It's always been Brady's arm. The difference is that in years past, Brady had a defense that could keep teams under 20 points most of the time. Despite my belief that Seattle's better, this is the best Pats team I've seen since 2007 and maybe the best since 2004.

I think it is the best defense and most well rounded team since 2004. In 2007 & 2011 they got to the Super Bowl despite the defense.

Actually, I would love to see the Patriots surprise everyone this Sunday and attack the defensive secondary of Seattle. Twice Rodgers shied away and lost. I think most are expecting the Pats to try to establish the running game. The routes the Pats run, and having Gronk, Edelmen, LaFelle, and Vereen out of the backfield gives them plenty of ways to play it out in the air. I'm not talking all slants, not am I talking deep. I would like them to go for the 10-25 yard strikes.

Packers who have a better QB, better running game and better passing game than the Patriots could only score 22 points and that is with Seattle having the worst game of the year coughing up 5 turnovers.....I don't see the Patriots scoring more than 17 points on this defense.

Packers had red zone issues all year, kicked FGs against the Patriots, too. Rodgers had to be under center, which is not his game, due to his limited mobility. Brady 100% healthy will be better than Rodgers. I love Aaron but being honest Tom is better in this situation.

If the Patriots bring their "A" game and are "on the ball" (a properly inflated one) on both sides of the ball they will win.
It is going to be a good close game but unless there is an immaculate reception like the Giants pulled down twice then the Patriots are on top.

Packers were ranked #1 in scoring in the NFL with 486 points, average 30.4 per game....how is that having red zone "issues???????


Rodgers has a more accurate arm than Brady....that is a fact.

Rodgers QBR 112 4,398 YARDS TD 38
Brady QBR 97 4,109 YARDS TD 33


here is the key stat: Brady attempted more passes than Rodgers 373 to 341 and still Rodgers got more yards and more TD's.



How is Brady better than Rodgers in this situation?????





in the running game the same: Packers attempted 435 runs to the Patriots 468 and Packers averaged 4.4 per carry with 1,918 total yards while the Patriots averaged 3.9 per carry with 1,727 yards.


Packers have a better passing and better running game than the Patriots and they could only score 22 points with the Seahawks coughing 5 turnovers.
