The New England Patriots Will Win Super Bowl XLIX If

  1. Run the ball – The Patriots have to run the ball. Seattle allowed the Packers to rush for 135 yards from 30 carries. The Patriots don’t necessarily have to rush for a lot of yards, they’ll just need to run the ball enough to keep Kam Chancellor and Earl Thomas thinking about cheating up. Because by running the ball, the Patriots will be able to…

  2. Get the ball downfield to Gronk, Edelman and LaFell – Rushing the ball should open things up for all 3 of New England’s top receivers, not to mention Danny Amendola, who has been heating up lately.
  3. Stop the run – It goes without saying that if you stop Marshawn “Beast Mode” Lynch, you’re going to make Seattle’s offense less effective than it normally would be.

The Seattle Seahawks Will Win Super Bowl XLIX If

  1. They get to Brady – Let’s not kid ourselves. Green Bay’s offensive line dominated the Seahawks’ pass rush. The Legion of Boom only laid it on Aaron Rodgers once. A single sack for 7 yards lost? That won’t be good enough versus Brady and the Patriots.

  2. Lynch gets into Beast Mode early – It’s true that Marshawn Lynch gets better as the game wears on, but the Patriots are more like the Packers and there’s no guarantee that Seattle won’t be behind in the fourth quarter again unless Beast Mode starts roaring in the first quarter.
  3. Make it simple for Russell Wilson – Wilson is turning into one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL, but he’s still learning the game. Don’t think that you’ll be able to out create the New England Patriots with multiple formations and tons of deception. Just have Russell read the defense, go through his reads, and play a normal game. Nothing fancy.

Bet On New England to Win Super Bowl XLIX

Don’t let Deflate-Gate take anything away from the Patriots. New England should win Super Bowl XLIX because they are more balanced on offense, have a hall of famer at quarterback, and their defense matches up better with Seattle’s defense than Seattle’s offense matches up with New England’s defense.

Brady won’t make the same mistakes that Peyton Manning made in last year’s Super Bowl. He’ll take his time under center while Coach Bill Belichick and the Patriots’ defense should find a way to slow down Marshawn Lynch and confuse QB Russell Wilson. The Pats should roll in this matchup.

My Final Score Prediction:  New England 38, Seattle 20
