LeGarrette Blount on Seahawks defense: 'They're not immortal'

Tuesday January 27th, 2015

New England Patriots running back LeGarrette Blount said the Seahawks defense is not unstoppable, Tim Booth of the Associated Press reports.

Seattle has finished No. 1 in points allowed three straight years and also led the league in yards allowed the last two seasons. In two playoff games, the Seahawks have given up just 39 points.

Despite the Seahawks' impressive resume, Blount said he is confident ahead of Sunday's matchup with the defending Super Bowl champions.

Blount, who joined the Patriots after being cut by the Steelers earlier this season, rushed for 281 yards and three touchdowns in five regular season games. In New England's first two postseason games, he rushed for 149 yards and three scores.

The Patriots and Seahawks play in Super Bowl XLIX on Sunday in Glendale, Ariz.
