Super Bowl Predictions

Glenn Dickey

Seahawks 27,

Patriots 20

The Seahawks’ defense will slow Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and the combination of Russell Wilson and Marshawn Lynch will give Seattle enough offense. And now, all you who are familiar with my predictions, can go out and bet the house on the Patriots.

Defense wins, and Seattle’s defense a bit better than the Patriots’. The game figures to be low scoring, maybe even dull, with a breakaway play or two.

Seahawks 24,

Patriots 17

Never mind the deflated footballs. This game is going to come down to defense, as championships often do. Seattle’s offense is no great shakes, and with two weeks to prepare, you can bet Bill Belichick will have his team ready to handle it. But the Seahawks’ defense is far superior to that of New England, and that’s what will carry the day.
