Who will win Super Bowl XLIX between the New England Patriots and the Seattle Seahawks? Our sports has varying opinions. As of Saturday night, the Patriots were a one-point favorite.

I keep looking back at the Baltimore Ravens-Patriots game. The Seattle secondary won’t play soft on Brady’s quick drop-back pass game. They will make Brady uncomfortable. Also, Marshawn Lynch’s former college teammate, Justin Forsett, had 129 yards rushing against Pats. Lynch will have more.

Russell Wilson goes Captain Clutch, Marshawn Lynch goes Beast Mode and the Seahawks‘ defense goes “Boom!”

Seattle’s defense might be able to control New England’s offense, but can its offense do anything against New England’s defense?

Hard to bet against this Seahawks defense. Seattle’s secondary is one of the few groups in the league that can keep Rob Gronkowski quiet, and that may prove to be the deciding factor here. Look for Marshawn Lynch to also have a huge game. Though his non-answers have become a major storyline this week, nobody will care come Monday. He’s all about those touchdowns, boss.

The Patriots are a much more balanced team than Denver was, and Bill Belichick will find a way to hem in Russell Wilson. Wilson could attack the Broncos with his arm last year. He’ll have a much tougher time against the New England secondary.
