Seattle should be able to get down their left side but a counter down Seattle's right will have to be stopped. Can do they do it?

New England hasn't really changed its attacking model with the addition of Kei Kamara but they mortgaged their future on the 31 year old striker. 13 points in 13 games is a pretty poor record and somehow worse than ours (same points, more matches) and with only two wins on the season.
