Former Oregon Ducks Leave Their Mark in Super Bowl Win


In the end the game came down to one play. A play for the Seattle Seahawks that would make or break their season. On the night both the New England Patriots and the Seahawks slugged it out in Arizona, but when it came down to it the game was won or lost through the air versus on the ground. Former Oregon Ducks Running Back LeGarrette Blount was not one of the stellar performances of the night, but he did find a way to get some yards on the ground.

Blount was held to just forty yards on the night, but they were yards that counted. They were yards that led to moving the chains and at times Blount looked slow as he plowed into the Seattle Defense who was there to swallow him up.  Marshawn Lynch had a better night on the ground for Seattle with a touchdown on one-hundred and two yards.

On the Defensive side of the ball, Safety Patrick Chung played a part in the game with one tackle, but the biggest play of the game was made by his teammate Malcolm Butler who sealed the victory for New England with under thirty seconds to go in the game.

The offseason now begins for the National Football League and the next event is the 2015 NFL Draft. Decisions will be made over the next four months leading up to one of the biggest days for Oregon fans this year and it centers around one man. Marcus Mariota. Where will he end up? Who will he play for?  We will know soon enough.
