Patriots win; did Seahawks blow it?

The New England Patriots won the Super Bowl, but it was no easy feat. The Seattle Seahawks led 24-14 in the fourth quarter, then had a second-and-goal at the 1-yard line trailing 28-24. But a questionable play call -- pass instead of run -- kept the defending champs from repeating. What do you make of the big game?

Patriots or Seahawks in Super Bowl XLIX?

Super Bowl XLIX is just days away, and so-called "Deflategate" still is dominating the talk surrounding the game. No matter what, though, the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks will square off Sunday in Glendale, Arizona, with each team attempting to add to its legacy. The Seahawks are aiming for the first NFL repeat since ... New England, which won its second and third titles under Bill Belichick and Tom Brady in 2003 and 2004. Will it happen again, or will the legendary coach/QB combo get its elusive fourth ring?

Shortly after Bill Belichick and Tom Brady denied any knowledge of the New England Patriots' underinflated footballs from the AFC Championship Game, we asked SportsNation: Do you believe the coach and the quarterback?

The early response:

However, this poll was placed primarily on ESPNBoston.com, meaning only a few cynics from Nebraska could overcome the wave of support from the Patriots' national following.

When the poll went wide, though? Things changed everywhere ... except one certain region of the country.
