Last second interception seals Super Bowl win for Patriots

Patriots defensive back Malcolm Butler intercepted a Russell Wilson pass in the final minute Sunday night, sealing a 28-24 win for the Patriots in Super Bowl XLIX in Phoenix.

With the ball at the one yard line, the Seahawks decided not to run the ball with Marshawn Lynch, who ran 24 times for 102 yards in the game. Instead, Wilson threw what would be his only interception of the night and the Patriots walked away with their fourth title in 14 years.

The Patriots were down 10 points in the fourth quarter, but Most Valuable Player Tom Brady found Danny Amendola and Julian Edelman for fourth quarter scores to put New England ahead. Brady threw for four touchdowns and completed 37 of 50 passes on the night.

The Packers faced both Super Bowl teams this season, beating New England on November 30th on CBS, but losing to the Seahawks in the NFC Championship Game two weeks ago.
