Super Bowl Teams
And then there were two, as the Seahawks and Patriots will face off in Super Bowl 49. On the field, the game will come down to how the Patriots’ high-powered offense does against the Seahawks’ league-best defense. But let’s take a look at how these teams match up off the field.
The Patriots are the NFL’s second-most valuable franchise, worth $2.6 billion. Since Robert Kraft bought the team for $172 million in 1994, the franchise has won three Super Bowls. Among New England’s biggest team sponsors are Bank of America, Pepsi, Verizon, and Gillette. On the other sideline is the defending champion Seahawks. Coming off last season’s Super Bowl win, Seattle saw their value increase 23% to $1.3 billion. The team is owned by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen, who’s the NFL’s richest team owner.
