Super Bowl XLIX: Seahawks On Offense

The Seattle Seahawks are back in the Super Bowl for the second consecutive year.  The offense is not the star unit on this team.  Quarterback Russel Wilson only had one touchdown pass in the NFC Championship game and it was in overtime.  The air game is not strong, but thanks to Marshawn Lynch (Beast Mode) the ground game is dangerous.  The Seahawks ran for more yards (2,762) than any team in the NFL, while leading the league in yards per carry (5.3) and rushing touchdowns (20).  Lynch known as Beast Mode is a wrecking ball in cleats.  He pushes through defenses with ease.  The New England Patriots defense will make stopping #24 their top priority.

Here are the probable starters and key players for the Seahawks offense.
