It's been 32 years since the Super Bowl captured record TV viewership and ratings, but it could happen Sunday.
Quarterbacks Russell Wilson and Tom Brady make the Super Bowl 49 clash between the Seattle Seahawks and New England Patriots a duel of contrasting styles. New England's Brady, of course, is already guaranteed his spot in the Hall of Fame. A three-time Super Bowl winner, the 37-year-old Brady will be the first quarterback to start six Super Bowls.
By Mark Lamport-Stokes SCOTTSDALE, Arizona (Reuters) - The omens look good this week for Phil Mickelson, a long-time fan of the National Football League who has made a habit of flourishing at the Waste Management Phoenix Open when the Super Bowl is in town. Mickelson, who attended Arizona State University, won the first of his three Phoenix Open titles in 1996 when the Dallas Cowboys beat the Pittsburgh Steelers 27-17 to clinch the Super Bowl in nearby Tempe.
Now the New England Patriots are back where a Super Bowl championship - and an unbeaten record - barely eluded them seven years ago. Not that they dwell on their return to the place where the best season in NFL history slipped from their grasp. ''It's not where we play, it's how we play,'' Tom Brady said Wednesday, ''and I'm glad we're here with the opportunity to do something really special.'' A win Sunday night against the Seattle Seahawks would even the Patriots record in Super Bowls at University of Phoenix Stadium at 1-1. New England is seeking a championship, not closure for its 17-14 loss to the New York Giants in 2008.
Almost all football fans know Tom Brady, Russell Wilson, Richard Sherman, Marshawn Lynch and Rob Gronkowski. The New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks wouldn't be playing in the Super Bowl on Sunday if it weren't for their superstars. Jermaine Kearse caught a touchdown pass in overtime in Seattle's win over Green Bay in the NFC championship game.
Tom Brady began winning Super Bowls when Russell Wilson was still a teenager, tuning in to see the big game on TV. ''Of course I remember watching Brady,'' Wilson said Tuesday. Hopefully he doesn't make too many incredible ones this year.'' When Wilson leads the Seattle Seahawks into the Super Bowl against Brady and the New England Patriots on Sunday, both quarterbacks know the outcome will affect the way each is viewed for quite a while. Wilson can become the eighth starting QB to win consecutive Super Bowl championships, and the first since Brady did it 10 years ago.
By Steve Keating PHOENIX (Reuters) - Taking part in his sixth Super Bowl Media Day, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has probably heard the questions all before during the 'anything-goes' get-together with reporters. Ahead of the 2008 Super Bowl, which was also played in Glendale where the Patriots will take on the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, Brady was asked by a female presenter from a Mexican television station if he would marry her. On Tuesday, no wedding proposals were put to the Patriots quarterback, who is married to supermodel Gisele Bundchen, but Brady fielded a few questions out of left field, like, 'Who has the best beard on the team?' Answer: 'Rob Ninkovich, Julian Edelman.' 'What hurts when you get sacked?' Answer: 'Depends where you land.' Brady answered all with a smile and good humor, clearly happy that the questioning, for the most part, steered clear of the deflated football controversy that has hung over the team since their blowout victory over the Indianapolis Colts that clinched a Super Bowl berth.
