BLOUNT- In the possession leading up to Brady's red zone interception, Blount had 6 carries for 23 yards. While he may not have had impressive numbers at the end of the game, his presence on the field was a factor.
END OF HALF- Seattle's last possession was painful to watch. First of all, we got greedy chasing after Russell Wilson and let him gain 17 yards. Then the dreaded 23 yard reception combined with a 15 yard penalty to put them in the red zone. Pete Carol called a ballsy play going for the touchdown and this time it paid off. Heading into the half tied 14-14 when it could have easily been 17-7, was frustrating to say the least.
DOUBLE THREE AND OUT- Back to back three and outs and the game seemed to be going by rather quickly.
JULIAN EDELMAN- Was the MVP in my opinion. He made catches all game long especially down the stretch and on third downs. Moreover, people outside of New England finally saw how tough he is. Maybe with his new found fame he will actually pick up some 15 yard penalties for us next season.
DANNY AMENDOLA- Completely showed up for the Superbowl and playoffs.
LAST TWO DRIVES- After getting sacked, Tom Brady stepped up and did his job with some help from Shane Vereen and Brandon LaFell.
SPECIAL TEAMS- While there weren't any flashy special teams plays in the game, Stephen Gostkowski consistently booting the ball through the endzone was an important part of the game. Ryan Allen also did a good job when called upon. Had the Patriots not won, the incorrect call on roughing the kicker would have been another place to look at a play not going the Patriots' way. But of course the Patriots get all the calls.
