New England at Seattle
Erin Rynning’s Recommendation:
Sunday, 1 pm PT – CBS
New England -4 O/U 44
New England -3 O/U 44.5
Rob Veno’s Power Rating:
New England -6
The Seahawks and Patriots will present an intriguing clash of styles on Sunday afternoon. The 2012 Patriots offense is looking as good as ever, which is saying something considering how potent the unit has been over the years. Quarterback Tom Brady is still the straw that stirs the drink running the fast paced unit with immense precision. Importantly, the Patriots have found their running game averaging 165 yards per game on the ground. However, the Seattle defense, and especially on their loud home turf, will create disruption for the Patriots offense. Athletically the Seahawks defense can man-up not only up-front, but with their secondary as well. The Seahawks own the No. 1 defense in the NFL allowing less than 260 yards per game and have already shut down Green Bay and Dallas at home. Meanwhile, the Seahawks will ramp up their run game with Marshawn Lynch as they deliberately try to keep the ball away from the Patriots. We’ll look for the Patriots offense to stumble with their ultra-efficient ways, while dealing with the Seahawks’ athleticism and crowd noise. Seattle can score enough points, while playing keep away to get this game inside the number in a hard fought affair.
