New England Patriots at Seattle Seahawks: Three Bold Predictions

Bold Prediction No. 1:New England quarterback Tom Brady has spoken with his dermatologist and was advised by Dr. Maakpretti that the cool, moist Seattle air is good for his dry skin.

The Seattle Seahawks can do what the Giants defense does

Here's one of the more interesting story lines for this game. I've already said that this Seattle game will be the biggest test for this Patriots offense.

It's not only because...

Running to daylight still important in NFL

(Eds: With AP Photos.) By BARRY WILNER AP Pro Football Writer Vince Lombardi, not to mention Woody Hayes, would love what the 49ers, Patriots, Texans, Chiefs and Giants have been doing recently. It might be longer than three yards and a cloud of dust, but those teams have run to daylight enough to make the ground game viable in the NFL again. Only Kansas City has been losing among...
