Both teams enter the Super Bowl with identical 14-4 records combining playoff and regular season games. Seattle has won eight straight and the 22 points they allowed in the NFC Championship were the most points allowed by the team in their previous 8 games. The defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks is the top scoring, total and passing defense in the NFL. They allow just 267 yards per game and 16 points. The key to this game will be the Seahawks front four against the New England offensive line. The Seahawks can put great pressure on quarterbacks with just four pass rushers. Brady is not a mobile quarterback. Someone to keep an eye on in this Super Bowl will be Patriots running back Shane Vereen. The former California Golden Bears running back is not only a threat on the ground but out of the backfield. Vereen during the regular season had 52 pass catches for 447 yards. Vereen is a key cog here as Tom Brady may bait the Seahawks pass rush and look to dump the ball to his fast running back. Vereen is lightning quick and if he can find space can be a key weapon for New England. The Patriots running back has the ability to freeze the Seahawks defense and buy some time for Tom Brady in the pocket. The best offense against an aggressive defense is the screen pass to a fast back out of the backfield.
