|Beast Mode will be New England's focus since as he goes, so does Seattle.|
|In addition to his receiving, Gronk's run blocking will be critical.|
However, as I've written throughout the year, the best way to attack the vaunted Seahawks defense is a power running game, so LeGarrette Blount should figure heavily in the game flow. My dad says it to me nearly every week: you need to run right at them because they are too fast to run wide. Shane Vereen will still be factored in for some easy completions for Tom Brady and to create mismatches, but if the Patriots are going to win, Blount will need to be around 20 carries. Consistently pounding the ground game will make it easier for Brady to take some shots to Brandon LaFell downfield off of play action. And of course, it always comes down to their offensive line providing those opportunities to make plays.
