      you forgot interception number 4 could of sealed the game for the Pack. The DB has an open field past the 50 but went down instead. Pack went three and out and gave the Seahawks field position to move down the field.

      I had the Packers 6.5 and the over. The last field goal gave me the automatic cover and the over. it was Awesome.

    I feel like Chris Matthews deserved more attention in this video. He was working at a foot locker at one point (either during or before the season) but he was the one who recovered the onside kick in the NFC championship and he was shredding the Patriots defense throughout the game and was looking like the MVP had they won. I thought that whole story was interesting and worth mentioning

                  In the Pats-Giants 2nd Super Bowl at the end of the game once the Giants got into field goal range the Pats had to let the Giants score. Because the Giants could have killed all the time and just kicked a game winning chip shot field goal as time expired. In the Pats-Seahawks Super Bowl the Pats led by four, which obviously means a field goal wouldn't beat them, which means they could attempt a goal line stand.

                        I see your point, but you got a timeout. Use it, set up the goal line formation to match New England's look then hand it off to lynch. Don't see the problem there??

                            As a Seahawks fan. It was an amazing game. A game we should have been in. The math says we lost to Minnesota in the divisional round. The math said we lose to Rodgers in the nfc championship. Happy to have had two back to back super bowl runs. Humility is a virtue and those that couldn’t swallow the loss are gone and it’s still a great team to watch edge-of-your-seat football... go hawks

                                    Since the giants won their last superbowl I haven't gotten a game wrong. Whatever team I felt was gonna win has won. I don't watch football. Just good at picking the winners.

                                            Everytime the Patriots have issues on or off field with losing or injuries or rumors of players being unhappy or injured.And most importantly when people start writing them off, Belichek or Brady are done for time to part ways or retire.They start winning and winning getting into the playoffs and knocking off teams who were favored.Beating teams in the Super bowl that we're favored.Even last year nobody gave the Patriots a chance against the chiefs or the Rams.The funny thing about it is they never really had an all star running back or receiver or pro bowl defensive backs it's all Brady and Belichek and they are doing it as we speak at 6-0. They only team that can stop em from the super bowl is Kansas City and they don't look as good as they were last year,and Baltimore might be a surprise team but I'm thinking it's going to be same AFC championship game k.c at Pat's and the west is up for grabs but San Fran might sneak in there but will lose to whoever they play prolly Saints or Rams

                                                I'm pretty sure Wilson was supposed to throw an incompletion to stop the clock, but he pulled the trigger on the pick play. I always thought that if they had 1 more play they would have ran the ball.

                                                        Unbelievable play, how could they not run it with Lynch? I can see why the team started to crumble a bit after this Super Bowl.

                                                                Bruh, you didn't even bring up that they ran that SAME play on Butler earlier, the pick on the goal line and burned him on it, so when he saw the same formation and situation, Butler recognized the play and jumped the route expecting the same throw, got it, and won the game. That was the most impressive example of just how ell the Pats coach up their players, and what they expect from them on the field.

                                                                • da da

It wasn’t a great look to run based on what the defense gave. Seattle had one time out left. If you throw and unsuccessful you still have two more attempts to run. If you run and get stopped, you have to burn the last timeout which leaves you 1) run or bust 2) obvious third down pass play. The collapse of the D cost Seahawks the game. Brady torched the injured secondary in the 4th quarter. With 26 seconds left if Seattle scored and a couple of timeout left, Brady probably would have reached field goal range anyway. Not to mention that he could not have kneeled after the interception. If D is more focused and doesn’t jump offside, could have forced a safety and get the ball back.

                                                                                        still beat the Broncos 48-3 tho 😂

                                                                                              We all like to say that this game ended with that interception. But we overlook the fact that even AFTER the Interception, the Seahawks had one last chance to repeat as champions. New England was backed up on their own one yard line, and if Seattle's defense made one more play and forced a safety, they would've cut NE's lead to 28-26 and gotten the ball back. Then with about 15 seconds left, they might have been able to drive into field goal range and win 29-28 as time expired. It was only when Bennett got called for Encroachment (and the ensuing brawl that broke out) and moved the patriots up, that the game was officially over.

                                                                                              • James Scotti

Whereas in this game Seattle was trailing by 4 points meaning they needed TD they couldn't settle for a field goal. So it had less to do with Belichick not trusting or trusting his defense and more to do with the situations in both of those games.
