SUPER BOWL X-FACTOR: Percy Harvin, Seattle

Seattle wide receiver Percy Harvin hopes to finish a hard-luck season with a major bang.

He’s battled through injuries, but is scheduled to play in the Super Bowl. In fact, he will be the X-Factor for the game.

“I’m excited to have him back on the field,” Seattle wide receiver Golden Tate said. “He brings another whole dimension to this offense and to special teams. (He is) just another weapon on this offense, another playmaker (and) another guy who can break the game at any point.”

Harvin, 25, who was acquired in a trade with Minnesota and signed a six-year, $67 million contract with the Seahawks, needed potentially career-ending hip surgery.

He made it back for one game against the Vikings, on Nov. 17. He re-injured the hip and missed the rest of the regular season.

Harvin played in the divisional-round playoff game against New Orleans, but suffered a concussion.

“It’s been weird,” Harvin said. “It’s been frustrating. It’s been all the above, man. I had a tough time, and it wore on me a little bit.”

Harvin plans to blend into the Seahawks’ attack.

“I’m just adding another playmaker,” Harvin said. “We already have three or four good receivers out there. I’m just adding to the mix. We just think with all of us collectively on the field together, along with them trying to stop the ‘Beast Mode’ (running back Marshawn Lynch), we just feel collectively that it will be a tough time on defense.”
