(Reuters) – Hall of Fame quarterback Dan Marino said on Wednesday that the Seattle Seahawks’ improbable comeback over the Green Bay Packers in the NFC championship game gives the defending champions an edge in the Super Bowl.

Marino predicts a tough game between Seattle and the New England Patriots in the Feb. 1 Super Bowl but says the former will be flying high after erasing a 12-point deficit with less than four minutes to play en route to a 28-22 overtime win.

“They had their backs to the wall and got through that,” Marino told Reuters on Wednesday. “Mentally (that) will be an advantage for them.”

The elation of the unlikely comeback and a ferocious defense keyed by an imposing secondary known as the “Legion of Boom” also weigh in Seattle’s favor, said Marino, who was promoting the Nutrisystem diet program.
