LeGarrette Blount: Seahawks’ Defense Isn’t ‘Immortal,’ Can Be Beaten


PHOENIX — New England Patriots running back LeGarrette Blount isn’t overly intimidated by the Seattle Seahawks’ defense.

The Seahawks, whom the Patriots will play Sunday in Super Bowl XLIX, allowed just 4,274 yards this season (541 less than the No. 2 team in the NFL) and ranked third in run defense. Blount isn’t interested in hearing those stats, however.

?I don?t care about them being the top defense, that doesn?t bother me,” Blount said Tuesday at Super Bowl Media Day. “They were good enough to get here, just like we were good enough to get here. They?re not immortal. They can be beaten.?

Blount’s not wrong. The Seahawks and Patriots shared a 12-4 record this season, and both teams lost to the Kansas City Chiefs.
