Seattle will probably pass for only about 150 but the ground with Beast Mode & Wilson will be too much combined with the best defense by far in the NFL.
Belichick will move to counter Seattle's main strength which is Lynch. He'll go 4 - 3 and assign Hightower to shadow Lynch. Then he'll assign Jamie Collins (LB) to shadow Wilson. That challenges Wilson to throw the ball. Belichick will rely on Revis and Browner to do their job and prevent Wilson from throwing for huge yardage...

On the other side of the ball, look for the Pats to run Blount early and see if Sherman can tackle. I watched the last game and it was amazing that Green Bay did not even challenge Sherman. Same for Earl Thomas....

I see Seattle winning in a close one. I hope it's better than last years SB. Last years SB was over after the first snap. I have a few annoying Pats fans who think it's them against the world & anyone who thinks SEA will win is just a "hater" lol (I dont care for NE since theyre in a diff conference than my team).

Either way, I tend to stick to my teams conference so as a Cowboys fan, I'd like to see Seattle take it

I'll go with New England also, but not by 10+. This season New England scored 43, 37, 43, 34, 35 points versus some of the best defenses in the league. I look for that to continue Sunday.

42-36

If you're talking about the Bengals, Bills, Broncos, Lions, and Ravens, none of those teams come close to Seattle defensively.

42-36

Since Seahawks got healthy in November, nobody has scored more than 22 points on this defense.


Packers who have a better passing and running game than the Patriots, could only score 22 points and that is with Seattle playing their worst game of the year with 5 turnovers.

Since the Seahawks got healthy and everyone back in defense the opposition have scored:

3
3
14
7
6
6
17
22 * Seattle 5 turnovers....without those turnovers the Packers don't get to 17 points.

It's great how so many think Seattle's defense is invincible. I could care about the scores in previous games, just like I don't care the Pats blew out the Colts. Sunday is a new game in a different atmosphere (although I think it will be like a Seattle home game). We shall see - I think the Pats score > 30.

It's a winnable game for the Patriots, especially if they can cause turnovers. But Seattle's been pretty good at keeping the ball, with the exception of the horrible 3 quarters of football they turned in against Green Bay. The margin for error for the Seahawks will be less than what it was against Green Bay, so if they stumble out of the gate like that again, they could be in some real trouble. I'm betting that won't happen, though. I do think the Patriots will probably get out to an early lead, but Seattle will keep it manageable in the 2nd and 3rd quarters before the human battering ram, Marshawn Lynch, wears the Pats out late.

If I am New England I am slightly worried that I am the favorite in this game. Albeit by a hair.

I am taking Seattle for a few reasons:

1. In the super bowl, history is overwhelmingly on the side of the team with the better defense.

2. I don't see the Seattle offense repeating their poor performance, or even coming close to repeating the poor performance from two weeks ago.

3. Will the crowd be once again noticeably pro Seattle in the Super Bowl?

The Jets limited the Pats to 17 points in their second match up I think. That was probably their last low scoring game offensively. I think that was more scheme than talent.

I didn't watch the Jets too much this year, but from what I saw, they actually had some pretty good pieces. Their defense seemed pretty good, as well as their running game. But their QB play was just such a disaster that they had no chance of being a good team. I'm guessing their 401 points allowed was just a product of so many turnovers. They were apparently 6th on defense in yards allowed. With Rex gone, who knows if that'll continue next year though.
