Super Bowl Recap
Super Bowl XLIX happened last Sunday night. It was a clear night in Glendale, Arizona. Both the Seahawks and Patriots were ready to play. The first score of the night happened on a Brady throw to Brandon LaFell on a slant. 7-0 New England. Then Russell Wilson drove down the field with help of his newly discovered receiver, Chris Matthews. The Seahawks eventually scored. 7-7. The Seahawks and Patriots again both scored tying the game 14-14. The Seahawks drive down the field closing in on the end of the 2nd quarter. They did not have enough time to score a touchdown so they went for the field goal, making it 17-14 Seahawks. Chris Matthews name came up again when Russell Wilson threw to him for the touchdown on the first drive of the 3rd quarter. 24-14 Seahawks. The score stayed there until mid-way through the 4th quarter where Tom Brady throws a bullet to Rob Gronkowski. The Patriots get the ball back with about 4:30 left in the quarter. Tom Brady again drives down the field and finishes the drive with a touchdown pass to Julian Edelman. The Seahawks get the ball back with around 2 minutes left in the fourth down 28-24. During the potential game-winning drive, Russell Wilson heaved a deep pass to receiver Jermaine Kearse. The ball looked like it hit the ground but it actually hit Kearse's foot and he bobbled it up and caught it. I think it was one of the most amazing catches of all time considering it was on a game winning drive in the 4th quarter during the Superbowl.The Seahawks had the ball on the Patriots 1 yard line with 20 seconds left in the game. Instead of running the ball with the powerful Marshawn Lynch, they decided to throw it. It was a slant pattern to Ricardo Lockette. Everything looked good for the Seahawks until the Patriots defensive back Malcom Butler jumped the route and intercepted the ball. The Patriots got the ball and kneed it until the game was over. Incredible, just incredible. That was considered one of the best super bowls of all time. Right down to the wire. Congratulations to the New England Patriots.
