— Not all New York Giants fans hold a grudge over the regular-season shutout delivered by the Seattle Seahawks.

Actor Joe Gannascoli, who played Vito Spatafore on “The Sopranos," is a hard-core Giants fan. He came away impressed with Seattle’s Legion of Boom, and expects the Seahawks physical defense will overcome Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning and win the Super Bowl title.

“That defense is for real,” said Gannascoli, who was making the rounds on radio row on Monday.

As for his team’s brutal 23-0 loss in Week 15?

“I don’t think Peyton is going be taking a lot of advice on how to beat Seattle from Eli,” he said.

Gannascoli picked the Seahawks to defeat the Broncos 24-21 in the Super Bowl.
