The Seahawks are a rare home underdog for this Sunday’s game vs the Patriots. Vegas seems to think it’ll be a close game. Ex-Seahawk and Patriot does agree. He said on First Take this morning that the Pats will will by 3 touchdowns.
Ultimately, this game is about strength and strength. The Seahawks have the best defense in league, and the Patriots are currently sporting the best offense. It the type of #1 vs #1 matchup that we rarely get in any sport, on any stage. It should be a compelling game, no matter what.
How does the 12th Man factor into the final result? We already know that CenturyLink is the loudest stadium in the NFL, but what we haven’t figured out is how loud that stadium can get when the opposing team’s QB starts taking shots at the crowd with sound bites like trying to take the 12th Man out of the game, and “to see if you can get their fans to start booing their own players.”
