If Pittsburgh does win, it would make more sense in one respect: It would be far more plausible for the Seahawks to finish below .500 next year - and thus keep the infamous Super Bowl Runner-Up Jinx going - than if the Steelers lost; all that would really need to happen is for Seattle's defense to turn out to be a one-year flash in the pan - and come to think of it, there really wasn't even that much of a "flash," since the Seahawks finished exactly in the middle of the NFL in total defense this year, as they ranked tied (with Cleveland) for 16th in a 32-team league - and the 316.8 yards per game they allowed was actually a shade worse than the league average, which was 315.9.
