EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Pete Carroll says the Seattle Seahawks are ready to go for the Super Bowl after their final walkthrough practice on Saturday.

The Seahawks first went to MetLife Stadium around 10:30 a.m. and hung out on the field for about 15 minutes. Seattle then boarded buses and went across the street to the New York Giants’ practice facility. Seattle had brief meetings, took the official team picture and had a 35-minute walkthrough.

Carroll said the team is where they are supposed to be. He said the team got accomplished exactly what they had hoped to get done and believes Seattle is “right” mentally and physically.

Among the guests at Seattle’s final practice were former running back Shaun Alexander and former linebacker Isaiah Kacyvenski.
