Patriots vs Seahawks Super Bowl XLIX Arizona 2015 (Trailer)


Super Bowl XLIX, the 49th edition of the Super Bowl and the 45th modern-era National Football League (NFL) championship game, will decide the league champion for the 2014 season. It is scheduled to be played on February 1, 2015, at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, home of the Arizona Cardinals. This will be the second Super Bowl played in that stadium, and the third one held in the Phoenix metropolitan area. As part of the new NFL network broadcasting agreement, NBC will serve as the game’s broadcaster.
The Patriots took care of business Sunday night at rainy Gillette Stadium with a 45-7 blowout of the Colts in the AFC Championship Game to advance to Super Bowl XLIX Feb. 1 in Arizona.
New England entered the game as heavy home favorite over an upstart Indy squad led by Andrew Luck, a team that Bill Belichick’s squad had blown out in three previous meetings with the former No. 1 overall pick. That trend continued for a fourth time, although much like New England’s 42-20 blowout in Indianapolis during the regular season, the eventual conquest wasn’t without a few early pitfalls.Colts vs. Patriots: AFC Championship
For the first 30 minutes in Foxborough Sunday night it felt a lot like the Patriots dominated the Colts. And New England did go to the locker room with a 17-7 lead after a 21-yard Stephen Gostkowski field goal to essentially close out the second quarter.
But that field goal came after three straight incompletions in the end zone as the Patriots failed to take what would have been a more convincing lead. Earlier in the second quarter Tom Brady threw a bad throw toward Rob Gronkowski on the goal line that upended another potential touchdown drive with an interception.
Considering that the first score of the day for New England was set up by a Josh Cribbs muffed punt, Indy was hanging around more than many Patriots fans would have liked.
Also considering that the Seattle Seahawks hung around earlier in the day in a somewhat similar situation and then pulled off the fourth-quarter comeback, there was some halftime anxiety even with the Patriots taking the opening kickoff of the second half.
But clearly that worry was unwarranted. The Patriots scored on each of their first four possessions of the second half – all in the third quarter – to pull away. When it rained, it literally and figuratively poured for the Colts in the second half.
New England used a balanced, creative attack (35 passes and 40 rushing attempts) to achieve victory this time around. There were touchdown catches for both James Develinand a tackle-eligible Nate Solder. There was also plenty of running for LeGarrette Blount, churning out 148 yards and running roughshod on the Colts for the second straight January blowout.
Defensively the Patriots never let Luck get going. His throws were off most of the night. Matt Patricia mixed things up in coverage, with lots of zone and man looks out of sub packages. Kyle Arrington once again was impressive against T.Y. Hilton, but the overall team pass defense was the real story on a night that Luck and Co. struggled mightily to get anything near rhythm.
Foxborough fans never seemed to mind the wet weather – many New England-style foul-weather fisherman raincoats spotted the Gillette Stadium crowd – as they watched their team advance to its sixth Super Bowl in the Brady/Belichick era. The march for the elusive fourth Lombardi Trophy is on.
As Belichick said when accepting the AFC Championship trophy, on to Seattle. On to Arizona. On to another assault on the NFL record books for Belichick, Brady and the Patriots.
