Week 21: vs Seattle Seahawks

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Against the outstanding Baltimore rush D, the Patriots elected to emphasize the passing game during the Divisional Round of the playoffs, with only 13 rushes attempted all day (vs. 51 passes thrown). Brandon Bolden (3/7/0 rushing with 1/11/0 receiving) led the team in rushing while Tom Brady actually accounted for a TD run (6/0/1) - all told, the Patriots had 13/14/1 rushing to open the playoffs. During regular season, this team ranked 18th in the NFL averaging 107.9 rushing yards per game, with 13 rushing scores posted. Against the flaccid Indianapolis defensive front, the story was entirely different in this phase of the game. LeGarrette Blount smashed the Colts for 30/148/3 rushing and New England posted 40/177/3 as a team - heading into the Super Bowl, Blount is the battering ram who can assault the middle of an opposing defense. Look for him to have a significant role against Seattle on Sunday, although he probably won't score multiple rushing TDs against the Seahawks (see below). For his part, Blount isn't intimidated by Seattle: 'I don't care about them being the top defense, that doesn't bother me,' Blount said at Super Bowl media day. 'They were good enough to get here, just like we were good enough to get here. They're not immortal. They can be beaten...' The Seahawks' rush D closed out regular season ranked third in the NFL averaging 81.5 yards allowed per game, with eight rushing scores surrendered over 16 games played. Carolina managed 30/132/0 rushing at Seattle in the Divisional Round game, while the Packers posted 30/135/0 rushing during the Conference Championship game. St. Louis had 19/42/0 rushing at Seattle in the season finale (and only managed six points). As you can see, it is hard to push in TDs against the Seahawks in this phase of the game. Advantage, Seattle.
