The Seahawks and the Patriots are Super Bowl Bound!
The AFC and NFC Championships have ended and The Seattle Seahawks and the New England Patriots are headed to Arizona for Super Bowl XLIX! Congratulate your NFC and AFC Champs with Conference Champs Gear and Super Bowl Bound Gear from FansEdge! Seattle struggled through a rough three quarters against Green Bay in the NFC Championship Game, but the Seahawks rallied in the last few minutes of the game. Despite Seattle’s numerous turnovers and blunders earlier in the game, Russell Wilson threw a 35-yard touchdown pass to Jermaine Kearse in overtime, and the Seahawks became NFC Champions with a 28-22 victory over the Packers.
Regrettably for Colts fans, the AFC Championship was nothing like the NFC nail-biter. New England established a lead early in the game. Though Indianapolis responded with a single touchdown in the second quarter, they couldn’t recover before the Pats scored three touchdowns to enter the third quarter with a 31-point lead. A final touchdown gave the Patriots a 45-7 victory over Indianapolis. It’s undeniable that running back LeGarrette Blount played a large part in this win, rushing for a total of 148 yards and three touchdowns. With the Patriots headed to Super Bowl XLIX, quarterback Tom Brady will count this as his sixth appearance at the big game. The Seahawks and the Patriots will compete for the Vince Lombardi trophy on February 1st in Glendale, Arizona. You can count on FansEdge to help you represent your pick in official team style!
The last time the two teams met was in 2012, and Seattle won 24-23. To take home the trophy, the Patriots will have to turn up the running game, using Blount and their talented offensive line consistently. For a Seattle victory, the Seahawks will have to do all they can to overcome the New England defense. There’s no question that Seattle will turn to Marshawn Lynch, the running back that ignited the Seahawks’ comeback in the NFC Championship Game. With strong players and superstars on both sides of the field, this year’s Super Bowl could surprise even seasoned NFL fans. Will it be back-to-back wins for the Seahawks or a return to the New England legacy from the early 2000s? Make sure you don’t miss any of the action.
