New England Patriots Defeat Seattle Seahawks 28-24 in Super Bowl XLIX

Sunday, February 01, 2015

 

The New England Patriots battled through a nailbiter of a match to win Super Bowl XLIX, which ended in a physical altercation between several players. 

Tom Brady led the New England Patriots to the 28-24 victory over the Seattle Seahawks at the University of Phoenix stadium in Glendale, Az. The Seahawks defense intercepted two of quarterback Brady's fully inflated passes, but it would be a New England interception in the final minute of the game that would seal the victory for the Patriots. 

A miracle catch by Jermaine Kearse brought the Seahawks back to the ten yard line with just over a minute left in the game, putting them in position to take the lead. But an offensive call to pass the ball, rather than run it to powerhouse "Beast Mode" running back Marshawn Lynch, turned the ball back over to the Patriots and ended the Seahawks' hopes of a second Super Bowl victory. 

What followed was a physical altercation that saw Seahawks linebacker Bruce Irvin ejected from the game. 

The Patriots opened up the scoring in the second quarter, with quarterback Tom Brady hitting Brandon LaFell in the endzone. The touchdown followed an endzone interception by Seahawks cornerback Jeremy Lane, who would leave the game with an injury on the same play. 

Wilson's Seahawks answered with a touchdown from "Beast Mode" Lynch, who blasted his way through the Patriots defense tie the game at seven a piece. Brady lobbed the ball to Rob Gronkowski to put the Patriots ahead 14-7 with just 31 seconds left in the half. But Wilson and the Seahawks went to work and drove back into the endzone with an 80-yard rush, finally hitting Chris Matthews to tie the game before Katy Perry's half time spectacle. 

Perry entered on a mechanical lion, and with Lenny Kravitz and Missy Elliott, belted out a medley of pop power hits. 

The Seahawks took the lead for the first time in the third quarter with a 27-yard field goal, bringing the score to 17-14. Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner made the second interception of the game, and the Seahawks turned the rush into a Doug Baldwin touchdown, spreading the score to 24-14. 

But Brady found Danny Amendola in the red zone with just under eight minutes left in the fourth quarter to narrow the spread to 24-21. The Patriots continued their rally and took a 28-24 lead with a Julian Edelman touchdown with only 2:02 remaining. 

The Seahawks were poised to take the lead after Kearse's miracle catch with roughly a minute left in the game, but the Patriots' interception ended the match.
