It’s amazing to consider that it has already been 13 years since a Tom Brady led the New England Patriots with their first Super Bowl triumph when they played St. Louis Rams in 2002.
Yet here we are again, Brady on the precipice of another Super Bowl title. Brady does what he does for Patriots Sunday, completing 23 of 35 passes for 226 yards and three touchdowns with one interception. Records just continue tumbling for Brady who passed Peyton Manning for most yards passing in the postseason with 7,017.
Along with that, he also surpassed John Elway for most Super Bowl appearances with a quarterback (6). Brady could be the first to acknowledge that these records will mean nothing should they can’t buy the Vince Lombardi trophy come February. It won’t be so easy for Brady and co., however, as standing inside their way will be the defending champions Seattle Seahawks.
Although Green Bay dominated Seattle for pretty much the whole game, Aaron Rodgers had difficulties solving Seattle’s Legion of Boom. He only was 19 of 34 passes for 178 yards and a touchdown with 2 INT’. This is a concern, however, for Seattle’s secondary could be the injury to Richard Sherman who picked up an elbow injury against the Packers early in the fourth quarter.
With that said, the Patriots’passing game is peaking at precisely the right time. They currently lead the league in passing touchdowns this postseason with seven with their name. They are second in the league in the passing department with the Patriots averaging 314.0 yards per game via the aerial route this postseason.
What makes this New England team so very hard to beat now’s that they have a highly-effective running attack to fit Brady’s passing game. In the overall game against Indianapolis , LeGarrette Blount was on his game for 148 yards and three touchdowns on just 30 carries. He will soon be set for a tough night, however, against the Seahawks’ defensive line which has yet to permit a rushing touchdown in this year’s playoffs. sportsdiary365.com 2015 Super Bowl Predictions Patriots edge past the Seahawks.
