The Seattle Seahawks will be returning to the Super Bowl as they look to defend their title. They will face the New England Patriots, so this game will widely be billed as “offense vs. defense.”
This is due to the Seahawks possessing the No. 1 defense in the NFL for the second season in a row while the Patriots offense continues to be elite under the leadership of quarterback Tom Brady.
However, the Seahawks offense is nothing to scoff at, according to Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson. He particularly praised the Seahawks wide receivers. “I told you guys that from when we play those guys throughout the year, they have some very, very underrated receivers and they can get the job done,” Peterson said to NFL.com.
The Seahawks are not known for having good receivers, as Doug Baldwin led the team in receiving with 66 catches for 825 yards and three touchdowns.
However, they have come through in clutch moments, such as Jermaine Kearse catching the game-winning touchdown in overtime of the 2015 NFC Championship and the go-ahead touchdown in the 2014 NFC Championship.
The Seahawks offense also ranked 10th in the regular season in points scored per game with 24.6.
