Chris Schliser | Staff Writer | Super Bowl Pick: Seattle Seahawks

After what the Seahawks did last year in the big game, its hard to call the Patriots favorites. While I think it will be close, a grind out kind of game, I have to go Seahawks. The Patriots run defense is vulnerable to a big game from Marshawn Lynch.

The Seahawks secondary will be physical with the Patriots receivers, including Rob Gronkowski. They will pressure Brady and knock the passing game out of sync. The team that stops their opponents rushing attack will win this game.

I just don’t see the Patriots stopping Beast Mode.
