Seahawks And Patriots Head To Super Bowl XLIX

After an exciting day of playoff games (at least the first one!), Super Bowl XLIX's two teams are settled: The Seattle Seahawks and the New England Patriots. If you haven't been following the playoffs, here's a quick catch-up.
The Seahawks rally over the Green Bay Packers was one of the most dramatic comebacks in NFL playoff history, winning the tied game in overtime with a 35 yard touchdown pass (the only one quarterback Russell Wilson threw in the game, and the one that mattered most).
You probably know Tom Brady, but the very best Patriot is Rob Gronkowski. The tight end has guest judged on Top Chef, did a photo shoot with a fluffy kitten, visit sick kids dressed as an elf, and is really good at his job.
The big game will take place on February 1, 2015, at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. Before kick off Idina Menzel will perform the national anthem, and John Legend is performing “America the Beautiful." Katy Perry will be joined by Lenny Kravitz for the half-time show, and we're pretty sure we're going to hear an amazing rocked out version of "Roar."
After completely rolling over the Indianapolis Colts, Tom Brady and Bill Belichick are officially the first quarterback and coach pairing to make it to six Super Bowls. Also, Tom Brady's kids were wearing his jersey while rooting for their dad.

We are ready!!! Let's go Daddy! Let's go Pats!!! ❤️?❤️ Nós já estamos prontos! Vamos papai! Vamos Pats!!!

And, while Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson had an emotional reaction to their NFC win, defensive end Michael Bennett took a victory lap around the stadium on a bike.
