PHOENIX - Go ahead, pile on the Patriots.Declare the Bill Belichick-Tom Brady era over after they split their first four games this season. Call them cheaters when their footballs lose too much air. Predict the Legion of Boom will bring the hammer down on Rob Gronkowski.Then jump on the New England bandwagon.Watch one of the greatest quarterbacks ever lower the pressure on himself with handoffs to big LeGarrette Blount and quick passes to small receivers Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola. See the second-best defence in the Super Bowl silence Marshawn Lynchs running and put the burden on Russell Wilson to move the Seattle Seahawks with his arm and legs.Finally, concede that the Lombardi Trophy raised by New England owner Robert Kraft on Sunday night is well deserved, no matter how much fans of 31 other teams dislike the leader with the hoodie and the scowl — and his fourth Super Bowl championship as coach of the Patriots.No matter what goes on around this game or outside this locker room, whatever it may be, you have to be ready to play, defensive tackle Vince Wifork said. We cant let any distraction alter our course of what we want to be and how we want to do it.They want to be champions. How can they do it against the NFLs best defence?Start with Brady getting rid of the ball fast to a runner or receiver. Or let Gronkowski occupy two defenders after lining up wide, in the slot or beside a tackle. Or toss in some trickery — maybe a double reverse or even a flea-flicker.Theres no end to Belichicks football imagination.What would he like to establish early?What Id like to establish is the lead, he said Friday, flashing a rare grin he breaks out in the Super Bowl spotlight as if trying to show theres more to him than an obsession with Xs and Os and victories.The Patriots have scored first in just four of their last eight games. But theyve won six of them, with one of the losses coming in a meaningless regular-season finale.Never was their comeback ability more critical than when they overcame two 14-point deficits to beat the Baltimore Ravens 35-31 in the divisional playoffs.Doing that against Seattle will be a tougher challenge.The Seahawks are the first team to lead the NFL in points and yards allowed for two straight years since Chicago in 1985, when the Bears pummeled the Patriots 46-10 in the Super Bowl, and 1986. And in their last eight games, the Seahawks have allowed just seven points in the fourth quarter.Of course, the brainy Belichick probably saved some never-before-seen wrinkles — some might call them deceptions — to catch Richard Sherman and company off guard.He knows the game in and out. Hes very detailed and he wants perfection, said cornerback Darrelle Revis, a major reason for the Patriots improved defence in his first season with them. Hes a winner.Belichick has the perfect partner in Brady — a two-time Super Bowl MVP who holds numerous post-season passing records and brings great intensity and intelligence.He has the fight, the will and the determination to go out there and destroy anybody whos in his way, Revis said.Sounds a bit like Lynch. But the Patriots defence has been successful in neutralizing an opponents most dangerous player.They did it this season with A.J. Green of Cincinnati, Peyton Manning of Denver, Andrew Luck of Indianapolis (twice), Calvin Johnson of Detroit and Philip Rivers of San Diego.None, however, is a running back. And Lynch rushed for the fourth-most yards in the NFL and 13 touchdowns.But New England had the ninth-best run defence and allowed only six rushing touchdowns. So they have the players and the strategy to control Lynch.Green Bay did a really good job of that in the NFC Championship in the first quarter or two, Patriots linebacker Donta Hightower said. They really slowed him down. They forced Seattle to throw the ball a lot earlier, more than they wanted to.The Packers led 19-7 with just over two minutes left after Wilson had thrown four interceptions. But touchdown runs by Wilson and Lynch gave the Seahawks the lead before Wilson capped the incredible comeback with a 35-yard touchdown pass to Jermaine Kearse for a 28-22 overtime win.The Seahawks primary goal is to put the ball in their playmakers hands, Wilfork said. When you have Russell Wilson and Marshawn in the backfield together, you have to make sure you account for both of them.The Patriots will. Theyre disciplined, quick and physical on defence. Theyll chase Wilson down, gang tackle Lynch and use a secondary led by cornerbacks Revis and Brandon Browner, a Seahawk last season, to blanket mediocre receivers.New England was the NFLs fourth highest scoring team, averaging 29 points per game. It wont need that many to deny Seattle a second straight title and win the Super Bowl for the first time in 10 years.PREDICTION: Patriots 24, Seahawks 21.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Authentic William Hayes Jersey .

Coach Michel Therrien said on a conference call on Sunday that his team was happy to be home from Boston with a split of the opening two games of the best-of-seven NHL Eastern Conference second round series. The Canadiens pulled out a 4-3 overtime win in the series opener on Thursday, but let a lead slip away under relentless Bruins pressure in a 5-3 defeat on Saturday afternoon at the TD Garden. The third and fourth games will be played Tuesday and Thursday respectively at the Bell Centre. "We went to play two games where its tough for any team to play in the NHL and were out of there with the series tied," said Therrien. "Thats the big picture. "I think its a boost of confidence for our players that were able to compete with that team and play with that team. And one thing for sure, playing at the Bell Centre, with the fans and support weve got, is a tough place for the other team to play. Im sure the players will feed off our fans." The Canadiens were given the day off Sunday and will practice Monday at their suburban training centre to prepare for Game 3. While the Canadiens took home ice advantage away from Boston, the Bruins looked to have grabbed momentum in the series with four third-period goals. "Momentum, yes its a part of hockey, but theres nothing you can do about the past," said Therrien. "Whats important is the moment. "Our preparation for the next game has alreaady started.dddddddddddd From the coaching standpoint, there are going to be things well apply during practice and make sure we apply them in the next game. "Momentum starts when they drop the puck." He denied that the Canadiens were nursing a lead in the third period before the Bruins stormed back. He said Boston had only one scoring chance in the third 10 minutes and scored on their first real chance of the final frame. Defenceman Josh Gorges said the players want to put Game 2 behind them. "Theres no sense in celebrating too much after a win or beating yourself up after a loss," he said. "It doesnt do anything for you for the next game. We know where we stand. We know we have to be better." Therrien would not discuss any potential lineup changes. He said winger Brandon Prust, who looks to be struggling, is "totally healthy" and that he liked what he saw from rookie winger Michael Bournival, who returned to the lineup after sitting out a game in favour of veteran Travis Moen. "He had a really good first round,"said Therrien, who used Bournival in every game of an opening round sweep of the Tampa Bay Lightning. "We put him back in the lineup. I wanted to use his speed. I thought he did a good job with (Tomas) Plekanec." Therrien also said he hopes that popular singer Ginette Reno would be back to sing the Canadian anthem in Game 3. The Canadiens scored early after she sang in both home games against the Lightning. "Wed welcome her with open arms," he said. ' ' '
