Seahawks will meet New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLIX

The NFC champion Seattle Seahawks will face the AFC champion New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLIX.

And then there were two.

The NFC champion and No. 1-seeded Seattle Seahawks will meet the AFC champion and No. 1-seeded New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLIX on Sunday, Feb. 1 at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz.

The Seahawks topped the Green Bay Packers, 28-22, in overtime on Sunday afternoon at CenturyLink Field while the Patriots bested the Indianapolis Colts, 45-7, on Sunday night to secure their spots on the NFL's biggest stage.

Seattle will get a chance to defend its Lombardi Trophy against the last team to repeat as Super Bowl champions. The Patriots won back-to-back titles during the 2003 and 2004 seasons.

"To have a chance to go back to the Super Bowl is extraordinarily fun for us, and I hope everybody else, too," Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said after Sunday's win over the Packers. "We're going to do everything we can to go get it done when the time comes."

When the two teams meet two weeks from now, the Seahawks will serve as the home team. Kickoff is set for 3:30 p.m. PT, with national television coverage on NBC.
