We might not cover the Patriots or the Seahawks, but the Super Bowl is an event that produces exceptions on many levels. This is one of them. Here at All Over The Hill, Jesse Jones and Rocky Friedman will be stating their predictions for Super Bowl XLIX, such as the key matchup, X-factors/sleeper players and, of course, their prediction as to who will be crowned champions of the NFL.

Last year’s Super Bowl was just as highly anticipated as this one. The fierce Seattle Seahawks defense had a chance to go up against Peyton Manning and the Broncos, and at first glance, it looked like it would be a great matchup. However, the game itself was an utter and complete bust. There is no other way to put it.

New England overcame a 2-3 record (how’d they do it?!) and steamrolled their way to the Super Bowl – deflated balls or not.

It will be interesting to see if any words will been exchanged on the field after a crazy week in player media. Marshawn Lynch only shows up to be fined, former Seahawks corner Brandon Browner said the Patriots should target the injured Seahawks, such as Richard Sherman and Earl Thomas, and we all know that Brady and Sherman previously got into a heated exchange.

Without any further ado, here are some predictions for Super Bowl XLIX.
