Cross-country match-up in Super Bowl XLIX
HOUSTON, TX – Super Bowl XLIX will have a coffee versus chowder feel as the defending champion Seattle Seahawks play the New England Patriots.
The game in Arizona will feature two Super Bowl winning quarterbacks in Seattle’s Russell Wilson and New England’s Tom Brady.
Brady has won three Super Bowls, the first coming in 2002, when Wilson was just 13 years old.
On paper, the game looks like a toss-up with both teams sporting strong quarterback and running games, as well as being coached by two of the games best, Bill Belichick and Pete Carroll.
“I think Belichick has the advantage over any other coach in the NFL, but Pete Carroll manages to get his guys motivated. He’ll come up with something,” NFL fan Matt Snively said while running at Memorial Park.
“Both of them have good quarterbacks. Both of them got a running game. Seattle’s defense is a lot better, so that should be the turning point for them,” another fan, Justin Flakes, added.
In other NFL news, the Denver Broncos are set to hire former Texans head coach, Gary Kubiak, to be their new coach.
