Lots has changed for both franchises since that fateful Super Bowl matchup these two teams faced six seasons ago, and now Cam is under center in New England but Jamal Adams is playing safety for Seattle – take the Seahawks and give up the points.

The New England Patriots have an entirely different looking offensive attack with new QB Cam Newton under center – his ability to escape the pocket and elude tacklers gives the Pats a new level of effectiveness on that side of the ball.
For many reasons, the 2020 version of the Seattle Seahawks look terrific, with QB Russell Wilson tossing four TD passes in Week 1 for the win on offense and new safety Jamal Adams posting a sack and 8 total tackles on the other side of the ball – so dangerous, both.
These two teams have played each other 18 total times (including 1 postseason game), with the Seahawks winning 9 of those matchups and the Patriots also winning 9 games.
New England Patriots’ new quarterback Cam Newton is healthy again, and he proved in Week 1 that he is still effective as both a passer and as a legitimate running threat, his ability to escape the pocket and elude tacklers and throw on the run rare in the league.
The only problem with that plan is a team needs healthy and effective receivers to make that happen, and right now two of the Patriots best pass catchers are listed as questionable for this Week 2 matchup.
Veteran slot receiver Julian Edelman is listed as questionable due to a knee injury that is giving him discomfort, and young deep threat receiver N’Keal Harry is currently suffering from a shoulder situation that could keep him on the sidelines, both game-time decisions for head coach Bill Belichick.
In his fourth NFL season, 24-year old All-Pro safety Jamal Adams is proving to his peers why he was a first-round pick in 2017, the 2x Pro Bowler making his presence known in Week 1 for his new team, the Seahawks.
In his new team’s Week 1 take down of the Falcons, Adams posted 8 total tackles, 2 of those for a loss, a sack, and 2 hits on Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan, numbers that helped his team to a 38-25 whipping of the Atlanta squad.
Seahawks QB Wilson can’t do his type of damage if he isn’t on the field, and safety Adams will make it his job in Seattle to get his defense to the sidelines as quick as possible, an endeavor all those tackles and sacks will certainly help him achieve.
Patriots third year running back Sony Michel is going to play a huge part of Cam Newton’s offense, since his ability to both run with the ball and catch passes out of the back field make him an invaluable counter-balance to New England’s lethal passing attack.
In Week 1, Michel only carried the ball 10 times for 37 yards, averaging 3.7 yards per carry, and those limited touches led to a touchdown which helped his team to a 21-11 win over the division rival Miami Dolphins.
Last season, dual-threat Michel posted 1000+ all-purpose yards with 7 total touchdowns, and it would certainly help the team in 2020 if he could find his way to repeating those numbers this regular season and beyond.
It would seem that Seahawks star quarterback Russell Wilson keeps getting better every season he plays in the NFL.
Take the win in Week 1 of the 2020 season, for example – Wilson posted 31-of-35 completions for 322 total passing yards and 4 touchdowns on top of running the ball 3 times for another 29 yards.
More of that, please, says head coach Pete Carrol, who is looking to finally convert all that Seahawks talent into some major postseason wins.
