GLENDALE, Ariz. — Patriots quarterback Tom Brady hit Julian Edelman with a 3-yard touchdown pass with just over 2 minutes to go in the game to defeat the Seahawks 28-24 in Super Bowl XLIX Sunday night.  An interception of a Russell Wilson pass ended a Seattle comeback bid.

Wilson had driven the Seahawks down inside the New England 10-yard line, but Patriots safety Malcolm Butler picked off a Wilson pass at the one-yard line to secure the game.

Seattle had held a 24-14 after the third quarter, but Brady hit Danny Amendola with a 4-yard pass, after a 9-play, 68-yard drive, to make the score 24-21.

Seattle was unable to sustain a drive after that. And when New England got the ball back again, Brady moved his team 64 yards in 10 plays and hit Edelman for what turned out to be the winning score, 28-24.

The third quarter was all Seattle’s.

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson hit Doug Baldwin for a 3-yard touchdown and Steven Hauschka added a field goal as Seattle took a 24-14 lead after three quarters.

In the third quarter, Wilson drove the Hawks down the field but the drive stalled and Hauschka kicked a 27-yard field goal to make the score 17-14.

The Seattle defense came out of halftime with renewed energy and stopped the Patriots and Tom Brady, who threw his second interception of the game — this latest one to linebacker Bobby Wagner, who cut in front of tight end Rob Gronkowski.

Wilson then took the Hawks down the field on a six-play, 50-yard drive and hit Baldwin on a 3 yard TD pass to make the score 24-14.

The first half ended on a wild note after a listless first quarter.

Wilson hit Chris Matthews with a 11-yard pass in the final 6 seconds of the first half to tie the score at 14-14 at halftime.

After a listless first quarter, the two teams traded touchdowns in quick fashion in the second quarter.

Marshawn Lynch scored on a 3-yard run in the second quarter to tie the game at 7-7 with New England, but Patriots quarterback Tom Brady came right back in the final seconds.

Brady hit tight end Rob Gronkowski on a 22-yard pass to make it 14-7.

But with less than a minute remaining, Wilson drove the Seahawks down the field and hit Matthews for the tying 14-14 score.

Seattle had done offensively in the first quarter, of the game, but quarterback Russell Wilson hit Chris Matthews with a 44-yard pass to move the team down into the Patriots red zone. Lynch then ran it in from 3 yards out.

The Patriots seemed to move up and own the field on the Seahawks in the first half. Defensive back Jeremy Lane intercepted a Brady pass in the end zone Sunday to stop a New England drive in the first quarter.

However, Lane suffered an injured arm on the play and was listed as doubtful to return.

In the second quarter, Brady hit Brandon LaFell for an 11-yard touchdown pass on a 9-play, 65-yard drive.

Wilson was 12 of 21 for 247 yards, two touchdowns and one interception, while Brady was 37 of 50 for 328 yards and had four touchdowns and two interceptions.

Lynch ran for 102 yards in the game, and LaGarrette Blount had 40 yards for New England.

  • Think about it i dare you

    WHO IN THEIR RIGHT MIND THROWS AT THAT YARD ON THAT IMPORTANT OF A TD BEAST MODE SHOULD HAVE RAN IT IN THEY SHOULD FIRE THE PLAY COACH AND INVESTIGATE HIM FOR THROWING THE GAME ON A BET BECAUSE NO ONE AT THAT LEVEL WOULD EVER MAKE A PASS CALL AT 3 YARDS TO WIN THE FREAKIN GAME……………

    • Derek

      Carol did not call the play

      Our offensive cordinator did

      How can i be fan after that call
      I cannot support stupid people just like i cannot support my stupid brother

      • Derek

        Lets pay police more with the new stadium money they deserve it so we can have more of them beating up old black guys who use a golf club as a cane

    good game Hawks!

    We will win next year.Patriots never should’ve been there they cheated with the inflated balls the Colts should’ve been given the game not a sore loser just the truth

  • Karen

    we can walk off the field as winners in our hearts. With honesty, integrity, and a good game the Hawks will be there next year for the Super Bowl and give it their all. NFL should have stepped in before the game, investigated the deflated balls used by the Patriots, disqualified them and gave the game to the Colts. Patriots cheated, should have been fined and taken out of football. All the NFL can think about is fining Lynch which is so small of a rule, but deflated balls? Smells fishy. 2 weeks and no investigation ……Goodell should be ashamed and fired. Maybe the colts would have won but they would have done it with no shame and by the rules. NFL is so wrong.

      Your team leads the league (all 32 teams) in Performance Enhancing Drug use over the past 5 years.

      Aka, more people on your team use steroids to improve their speed, strength, skill than any other team in the NFL. That is a fact, proven.

      Who is cheating?

    • dan

      And all it took was a bunch of missed calls by the ref’s. Even the announcers called them out. PATS suck and can’t win without help!

      • Creepy Jackalope Guy

        Typical Seahawk fan response to blame officiating. Your team got beat due to poor coaching decisions and poor play by your overrated defense!

  • S.F Fan
