But that doesn't mean Seattle can't win this game, or heck - potentially win, decisively.
I've made my pick, but that's going to wait. Take your first run down the slopes. How do you feel about the game being outdoors in New Jersey? Is Peyton Manning playing for his legacy, or is that an overplayed angle? How much money did you win on the Pro Bowl?
