Patriots come back for amazing 28-24 win in Super Bowl XLIX

Two of the best late-game quarterbacks in NFL history stood toe-to-toe.

The young one blinked, and the old guy won.

The Patriots beat the Seahawks 28-24 in Super Bowl XLIX, a storybook ending for a pair of quarterbacks who were already legendary for their abilities in late-game situations.

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was 37-of-50 for 328 yards and four touchdowns, more than enough to overcome a pair of interceptions which put his team down 10 in the third quarter.

But as he had throughout the night, Brady calmly and methodically worked his team down the field, willing to take the short stuff even as time dwindled.

The go-ahead touchdown came with 2:02 left, setting up Russell Wilson for the kind of late-game drama which he’s become known for in a short time.

But it was Wilson who made the late mistake, throwing a goal-line interception to Patriots cornerback Malcolm Butler with 20 seconds left to seal the game.

Why the Seahawks weren’t running in that situation remains a mystery, but so much of this season has been.

The Patriots were able to goad the Seahawks into an encroachment penalty, giving them all the room they needed to take a knee. An ugly brawl ensued afterward, marring an otherwise beautiful game.

And Brady was the one to author the perfect ending.

  1. unbelievable. That was real stupid. 1 yard. 1 YARD. You have the beast back there and what do they do? Throw it. Carroll deserves to be blasted tomorrow.

  2. Lol Seattle starting a fight after the game was over. That was the saddest and most pathetic thing I’ve ever seen.

  3. I really dislike the Patriots but thank god! Now maybe those insufferable Seahawk fans will get back to reality, shut up, and realize they are NOT a dynasty but their team are really classless losers! LOTS of teams have won only 1 Superbowl (without starting a fight)! Only a few (including 49ers) have repeated as champion!

  4. (*)

    Brady taps center and he bobs his head to draw the encroachment…. missed call…. Still cheaters..

  5. Pete Carroll will be forever known as making the stupidest call in the history of any championship game … in any sport.

  6. Wilson keep your head up, your’e a great young qb, and regardless of what people say you are going to be great, as long as you take a reasonable amount of money and you draft wr’s you will succeed in the NFL.

  7. How does Lynch not get that ball?! Bevell!! How is it possible to be so completely brain dead and still be a functional human?

  8. Great ending to the game. Seattle disgraced themselves at the end of the game by trying to start a brawl. I’d hate to see what the bandwagon fans in the stands are starting.

  9. Not a Patriots fan, but I’m EXTREMELY pleased with how this game turned out. Seattle didn’t deserve to be here, and they demonstrated what they’re really all about at the end – cheap shots, an ejection, and an complete lack of class.

    Thank you, New England.

  10. Congrats to NE but that was the worst call in the history of the SB Marshawn Lynch I almost unstoppable from the 1 yard line. To run that play and throw over the middle INTO Traffic is beyond stupid.

    Seattle will still be a Dynasty this was Bradys Last hurrah ( I HOPE FOR MY SAKE).. Worst call Ive ever seen this game was in the bag and Seattle wins their second straight but inexplicably decide to throw to their 4th wideout on second down.. Words cannot express my disappointment in that call and situational football..

    Congrats NE you battled back I dont want this to be the coulda would shoulda bowl with penalites either called or not. But again WORST CALL OF MY LIFETIME..

    Go Hawks on to the next one!

  11. Seattle is such a horribly classless team and I’m glad the rest of the world finally got to see it. Their players have always been horrible winners and horrible losers. You’re about to lose so you wanna start fights with the other team who outplayed you? So glad to see this piece of garbage franchise and all their bandwagon fans get a slice of humble pie.

  12. It is NOT an exaggeration to say that was the worst play call in the history of sports. Not NFL, not football but sports. Without a doubt.

  15. Congrats pats fans. For the first time in 10 years you can celebrate a title. As for seahawks fans, you guys might want Darrel Bevells head. Who calls pass at the 3 yrd line with 50 Sec left ?

  18. Get over the cheating rhetoric. No one cheated. Brady carved a defense that fancied themselves the best in NFL history. I’m not a Pats fan, but all that cheating talk died tonight.

  19. Not a bad play call*, but a great play by Butler

    *Unless you have a RB like Marshawn Lynch

  22. Four rings. No asterisks in the official record books, just in your own head as you sit dejectedly in your parent’s basement.

  23. NOW do you understand how poor play calling by the coaches can doom a superior team and effort? Now do you get it?

    -signed, every Packer fan

  24. Hawks fan here to take my lumps. The hawks choked that away. Worst play call in Super Bowl history. They’re idiots, they lost that game calling a pass play. You hand it to lynch every time in that situation. Never been so disappointed in a coaching call than I am right now.

  25. Which is the bigger choke job – Seattle or Green Bay?

    At least the Packers players accepted defeat a little more graciously than the steroid enraged seachickens.

  26. Sherman looked like he was going to cry. Not a huge pats fan but I was pulling for them. Great game! After all the smack talk we had to listen to after the NFC champ game these seahawk fan tears are going to taste so good!

  27. Great game….Kearse catch was amazing and Hawks should have won…you run Beast Mode Carrol on the 1. …you run Beast dude.

    Oh well time to just add another ASTERISK to Brady and Belicheat ASTERISK Gallery and await the suspension hammer from the league. See this was a win win either way for the PatsHaterNation!

  28. As I have said I am a true Seahawks fan. I said that the Seahawks would win and they should have won. Worst play call in Carroll’s career and it cost everything. Still I am here and willing to take my lumps/ Bring it on

  29. Seattle got bevel’ed just like the Vikes did a few years ago and it was oh so beautiful to see their hearts ripped out like the end like that!

  30. I love it….Hoody and Brady best ever…..

    Bruce Irvin- what a coward, hits Gronk, runs away like a little girl…….

    Brady- 2 bad picks, in the 4th, total MONEY……

    as a steelers fan…i am in love with Hoody and Brady……so glad they won…..Brady……best ever

  32. Thank you Lord – I sure would have hated to see these jerks win the SP on another flukey comeback win. Looks good on you Sherman and looks good on you Lynch – shows what your team thinks about you – they throw it instead of running it from the 1 yard line. Looks absolutely great on the cheatingest, lyingest coach in the NFL – and that is Peter Carroll

  39. Russel Wilson is a class act and a wonderful QB he should have audible to a run there but the DB made the play of his life . what a great finish to a well fought game

  40. Pats lost it but Seattle gave it back. Cannot believe. One yard. Lynch. Pass. Somebody’s a fool.

    And you throw!!??

  48. Mistake after mistake and the lamest half time show ever, how fitting considering the year the NFL had this year.

  49. Where was “God” this time, Russell Wilson?
    Hahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Take your sorry butts back home to Seattle, She-haws. You didn’t even deserve to be in this Superbowl. You can send a thank you card the Packers special teams for even being able to gaze upon a real QB like Brady.

    Your window has closed. Buh-bye!!!!

  53. Conspiracy theorists will assert that the NFL paid off Pete Carroll to throw in that situation

    This should be fun

    0 titles since Spygate? – oops!

  54. Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, some dynasty Seahawk fans. Ask the Patriots about how to define a dynasty before you start yakking about it. Where was God tonight Russell?

  55. That was an outstanding game. Congrats to the Patriots. Seattle fans should be embarrassed by the classless display by their players at the end of the game.

  56. I was watching a Football Game and a Hockey Fight broke out. Congratulations to Both New England and Seattle on a well played game.

  57. Can’t believe they didn’t feed Marshawn on the 1 yard line. I wanna know who called that dumb passing play. Great finish by Seattle’s D, sore losers. They only have themselves to blame, they gave that game away.

  58. What a classless team seattle seachockers you should be ashamed but being from seattle I know you don’t.

    PATRIOTS WIN!

    Did I say seattle chocked?

  59. Goes to show how cheaters and underhanded manipulaters prosper. Wait for goodell to drop the hammer on your collective heads and nail another asterisk to your title****

  60. HOLY CRAP THAT WAS AMAZING congrats Patriots, I totally did not expect you to come back like that!

  61. Wilson is so overrated it’s not even funny! The guy can’t hide behind the number 1 defense for ever! Lol Seattle! Bunch of crap talkers all night. Go eat some of TO’s humble pie!

  62. Why you don’t pound it with Lynch? Not a good play call. Props to the defender recognizing it. Still not sure what started the scrum. I know who was involved but didn’t see what started it.

    Congrats Pats.

  63. As much as I’ve been suffering the past two weeks after my Packers melted down late, that play call at the 1 yard line causing the Seahawks to choke in epic fashion somehow makes feel much better now.

  64. Now this one was amazing! Congrats to the Patriots on a well-deserved win and a great comeback. Much respect for maintaining their poise through two ridiculous weeks. Seahawks played a good game, but I really don’t expect to see their fans on here congratulating the opponents. They just don’t roll that way. Karma.

  65. The bitters tears of the Pats haters are flowing like a river and will for months to come.

    Great game Hawks fans don’t let it get you down. You’ll have more chances at the trophy I think.

  66. This was Seattles chance to launch their dynasty and they failed Hahahahahahahahahahahaha. Now free agency will decimate em and back to irrelevance. Love how it took 3 guys to mess with Gronk and he straight slammed Bennett. Again Hahahahahahahahahahahaha

  67. Robert Kraft pretty hammered after the game – I can’t blame him, I was drinking heavily myself too.

  68. BREAKING NEWS: Seahawks bandwagon careens off of bridge, crashing & burning below ..also killed in blaze were hordes of spygate/deflategate trolls residing below

  69. Dynasty fail LOL. Good luck getting back next year, Seahwaks, when they break you’re little disrespectful, unprofessional team up. Can’t pay all your players to not do their job and talk to the media.

    Go Hawks! Hahahahahaha!!! LMAO

  70. What a bunch of SORE LOSERS!! Biggest choke of the YEAR!!!
    Worst call EVER!! Run the stupid ball to Lynch!!

  71. Now all you arrogant Seahawk fans have to live with this loss and I hope it burns in your stomachs until next year and beyond!!!

    Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha !!!!

    That’s four* superbowls for Brady!
    _____________________________
    No, that’s four SB victories, no asterisk. the rule they violated in spygate wasn’t a rules violation in the years they won the first 3 SBs. In this case, they haven’t proven the Pats did anything wrong yet, and even if they did, it’s not like it turned the tide in the AFC championship game. in fact, the pats did better in the 2nd half, when the balls were all regulation air pressure. I’m not even a pats fan, and I’m tired of hearing about bs asterisks. I’m willing to admit they outplayed my Eagles the one year we were able to make it over the NFC championship hump. Insult them all you want. Just be accurate about it.

  73. Did you really have the gaul to say Wilsonis legendary?! This writer is a joke! All these clowns who think Wilson is legendary choked when it mattered most! He is nothing more then a more athletic Alex Smith!

  74. 4*

    * More Super Bowls than any other team in NFL history in the last 33 years.

    Haters. U mad?

  75. Congrats to the Patriots.

    Anyone who uses the words cheater or asterisk needs to just shut their pie hole. Great game. I’m hating Bevell right now, but that’s how it goes. They deserve it.

  76. Um to all the people raging on the Seahawks, had that play WORKED you would have been calling it a gutsy inspired bit of deception by the Seattle Offense. As it was a New England Defensive play read the call and made the perfect play. It is called the way the games play out, some calls work, some don’t but if you don’t take risks you often miss out on greatness. I applaud both Teams for an outstanding down to the wire game. Sure was no run away blow out.

  77. LOL . . . HEY SEATTLE, THAT IS WHY PETE CARROLL IS NOT THE COACH OF THE YEAR. YOU KNOW, THAT “SUPERB, BETTER THAN AVERAGE” PLAY CALLING AT THE END OF GAMES.

  78. Patriots win.
    Why, why, why, would you call a slant when you have 21 seconds, Beast Mode and a timeout?
    We had this game and let it go with one lousy call.
    WOW!
    Great game Patriots!

  79. Greatest Super Bowl I’ve ever seen. Full of good and bad breaks, amazing plays and a turnover when it was critical. Go Patriots. Let the whining begin! (I’ll go get the cheese for all you sore losers)

  80. Congratulations, New England. Your Super Bowl XLIX champions. Brady is probably the greatest QB of all time. To the rest of the AFC, watch out. The AFC is probably the Patriots for Super Bowl 50 as well.

  81. So seachokes fans still saying dynasty? Really? Oh and SHErman, 21, that’s all. Oh and make sure mama SHErman feeds you PED-fortified Chunkys tonight.

  82. Not even a Pats fan, but I appreciate them serving that crow well done. The 12th Man will now dwindle to That One Guy. The only current dynasty is obvious as much as it pains me, The Patriots. Now much like the hub-bub about the Saints after their one title, Seattle too will return to the pack. Hat tip to the Pats organization.

  83. I don’t like the Patriots much. I like the Seahawks even less. I am as happy that Seattle lost than if my team had won. It is so awesome to see Seattle lose that game. I won’t even bother writing the whys. Everyone who can’t stand Seattle knows why no one but Seattle fans like Seattle. Oh, and having Wilson toss that pick to dash the hopes of the team and fans. That was priceless.

  84. Im sure all you Loser fans waited all year to try and throw shade on Seattle and their fans and team. truth is we still made it to the SB very likely should have won it if not for a bonehead call.. And were younger and in a better cap situation than most if not all your teams ..

    Seattle will learn from this, although Not sure Ill ever get over that call.. But they will be back becuase theyve still got all the horses and are perfectly postioned to make run after run after run. Its a shame Russ threw that ball whether call or audible.. That to me was a Seahawks victory and the Pats deal bailed them out.. Brady played a hell of a game but the pats D won the game not brady..IMO…

    Way to finish the job Pats, and I feel sorry for the haters that are going to try and explode the internet. SOrry your sucky team of choice wasnt good enough to get the job done. Atleast MY TEAM tried and was close..

    Brady is one of the best, different eras different league. Him and Joe stand alone to me. IM not gonna say hes the GOAT though just because many different variables. Montanna never threw a pick in the superbowl never lost.. But brady had had the longevity to say hes the best..

    For all the hate we seattle fans get. RW has better stats in almost every single category than brady in his first 3 years. People forget Brady won MVP of the SB with like 140 yards or something.. Brady developed into an all time great and any team would love a qb like him. For now us Hawks fans will stay loyal as we have been to 3 SB in 10 years and When Russell gets some more weapons well see if he can become Tom Terrific..

    Good Game , close hard faught battle between two of the best teams in football.. Congrats NE !!!

    GO HAWKS

  85. Ooooh that trophy is nice and shiny. I like shiny Lombardi trophies.

    Sorry haters, not this year. You mad?

  86. Best outcome and way to end that crummy Superbowl matchup. Both teams demonstrate their true lack of class at the end, Wilson and his god are denied the Superbowl that was supposedly predestined for them, and the Patriots win will always be considered tainted. Couldn’t ask for more than that, I suppose.

  87. Clearly, Bob Kraft paid off Pete Carroll back in 1999 to culminate a plan leading to this moment

    All this time people thought he was fired, but it was all part of a long term plan to go back to USC, then the NFL to make Seattle think they had a dynasty (just like the Rams) only to set up a pass play with Lynch at the ready

    So there you have it – the Patriots* cheated again, with Pete Carroll acting as a double agent

    That’s what LogicalVoice is thinking right now anyways

  88. seahawks choked a 10 point lead in the 4th q . tom brady carved up the legion of buffoons for 400 yds and 4 tds . u mad bro?

  89. This is the same play call that the 49ers tried against the Ravens. A pass in that situation should be the last option. Congratulations to New England. Don’t be surprised if the NFL doesn’t find any violations now. And the cufflinks on Robert Krafts shirt were as big as two small children heads. Wow.

  90. Pete. LOL. Out-smarted yourself again pal. Amazing that such a genius can also be the dumbest guy on planet earth. Can’t recall a worse play call in my entire life.

  91. Not a fan of the cheaters and think their day of judgement is coming. The Seahawks and especially Sherman on the sidelines bragging to the camera and Lynch pre game non interviews got exactly what they deserved. Maybe they will learn what goes around comes around.

  92. Ah well another dynasty crumbles before it begins.
    Thank you Pete Carroll for taking GB off the hook.
    Talk about a choke, and the true character of Seahawks was shown at the end of the game.
    Too bad GB didn’t beat you, at least we would have beaten the Patriots!

  93. It’s rich hearing Pats fans telling any other team to stay classy. A lucky win, thanks to Petey, but that makes up for a few they were unlucky to lose. Anyone who questions Brady as one of the greatest, if not the greatest QB of all-time is a fool. I’m not a fan of the man, but I appreciate greatness when I see it. The same can be said Bill Belichick, he’s the greatest coach I’ve seen in my lifetime. Congrats to the NE franchise.

  94. Maybe if Lynch would have opened his mouth and acted like a professional, they would have beat the Pats. This is redemption at its finest. Lynch is a joke.

  95. Well, the PEDs kicked in once again. Hopefully, Bennett and Irvin will be suspended for tackling those Patriot players like that.

    2 weeks ago when my Packers lost the NFCC, I said I wouldn’t come back on this site until next season, but I’d like to make an early return to give the Seahawks and their insufferable fan base a big moon. They SORELY deserve it. They are COMPLETELY classless.

    Good riddance!

  96. The tears of the Pats haters taste so sweet.

    Just think. The gloating and rubbing it in the faces to the Patriot haters has ONLY BEGUN!

  97. And to those who trolled Levi’s stadium on the way to AZ….

    HAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA (catching my breath) HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH.

    Long drive back home, sorry seachokes fans.

  98. And I thought that my Pack choked. How can you not give the ball to Beast Mode. Maybe he scores maybe he doesn’t, but that was dumb. give the Pats credit.

  99. The most heatbreaking loss in the history of the Seattle Seahawks without doubt. And, perhaps the most questionable and heartbreaking loss for a team in the history of the Super Bowl.
    Absolutely unbelievable.

  100. You can Bevel out of Minnesota, but you cant take the Viking out of him. Worst call in superbowl history

  101. This was a great super bowl, and a great win by the Patriots! Of course seaderall fans are going to cry, but you all got what you deserved. Goes to show Karma is real! Act like you have been there before. Never seen such a sore bunch of classless losers in my life. 51 Should be suspended into next season for that lack of class he displayed!

  102. This writer needs to be fired for calling Wilson legendary.

    But hey cheathawk fans, you can be proud of Wilson for being 2nd man in history for something in a sb game, longest time into a game without completing a pass. What a joke

    #gohomehawks

  103. Seattle lost the game, Patriots didn’t win it.

    Same could be said of Green Bay a couple weeks ago.

  104. Patriots *

    * World Champs. 4th title in 14 years. Kings and rulers of the NFL.

    Sleep well haters. 🙂 Sweet dreams!

  105. I don’t think most people appreciate just how great of a play Butler made on that INT. He picked it, but his momentum carried him into the endzone; if he didn’t have the presence of mind to jump OUT of the endzone, the Seahawks could’ve tackled him for a safety, and then gotten the ball back on a free kick.

  106. Good effort Seattle, I tip my hat to you ..so I’ll be sure to order my Pats Super Bowl Champions t-shirt from Amazon on a Windows PC while sipping Starbucks & listening to Pearl Jam

    Seachokes fans are funny. Bunch of eminems up there.

  108. Can’t think of a worse call at the goal line. If you must pass, throw to the sides. At least you can get rid of it if it’s not there. If they ran it, it would have been a Seahawks victory.

  109. THE BILE AND THE BITTERNESS FROM THE PATRIOT HATERS IS FUNNY. I CAN’T STOP LAUGHING AT THEM.

  110. Seahawks are not classless losers, Pete Carroll is not the worst coach ever and the Patriots victory does not deserve an asterisk. Just relish in the fact that this was a great game and you all got to watch it.

  111. GOOD! To the Noobs (seattle fans) New England is a dynasty, you’re baby nuts! Noobs can go back to not watching football. Thank you, Boston!

    You know what’s funny, other than thinking Wilson is going to be special, all the hawk fans will fight tooth and nail saying stats don’t matter when people bring up his low passing production, yet all we have heard this week is how Wilson’s stats match Tom’s through the first 3 years….. So basically it just depends on the argument on which way they’ll go. Pathetic

    #gohomehawks

  113. There’s not a fan base more deserving of that than the “2012 man”
    Most annoying fan base in all of sports, and that includes Ohio St.

  114. Cheat Carroll and Russell Wilson demand an explanation demand an explanation as to why the winning interception wasn’t ruled a touchdown catch.

  115. NO team has won as consistently since free agency than the Patriots. Don’t talk to me about Manning and the Colts. What rings did they win?? Manning always seemed to make a mistake in critical parts of playoff games.

  116. Been saying it for a 2 years. Russell Wilson is overrated. Thank you Patriots. Not a Pats fan but can’t stand the Seahawks and then the classless act at the end of the game. Hey Sherman, you mad bro?

  117. I love the “Seattle earned a win” comments while totally ignoring an insane catch to even get in the situation to go for the win.

  118. Why didn’t NE call time out when Seattle got to the 1 yd. line?? Lucky Pete bailed him out with the dumbest call in SB history.

  119. The truly brilliant end of game call is the one that wasn’t made — Belichick not calling a timeout. Had he called a timeout Seattle would have had more time to think about what play they wanted to run. Given the formation Seattle was in Belichick saw the possibility of a pass and realized an interception was possible.

  120. Team with the most wins, including a Super Bowl victory, since Spygate, is the Patriots

    Hilarious that all the haters were saying Brady was washed up at the start of this season!

  121. The winning formula for Patriots cheat just enough, bring in questionable characters (Blount,Browner),play games against div. II like opponents in AFC east, have a commissioner spend quality time at your boss house. You mad bro.

  122. Time to jump off the bandwagon. Before last years Super Bowl Seattle had a few thousand fans. After they won the Super Bowl somehow they grew to a few million fans. After today’s Super Bowl loss the bandwagon is emptying back to where it was before the Super Bowl win.

  123. Perfect that the game between two of the NFL’s most classless teams ending the SB in a fight. Fitting end to a horrible season that started with RG butchering the Ray Rice ordeal, followed by Adrian Pederson, Josh Gordon, and Deflate-gate. Wonder how proud the NFL owners are of their commish?

  124. I just got a phone call from my 75 year old grandma
    who only watches one football game a year
    the Super Bowl and she called me asking my why
    they did not run it with Marshawn Lynch.
    The Seattle fans have got to be Sick and so is the
    Defense. Even my 75 year old Grammy knows
    that you don’t throw a pass right there.
    hell NE was going to let them score so they would have enough time for a long FG shot.

  125. PACKERS 26 – PATSIES 21 . THIS GAME PROVE THE PACKERS ARE THE BEST TEAM IN FOOTBALL. MVP AARON RODGERS WOULD HAVE RIPPED THE PATSIES APART LIKE A SURGEON. GUYS OFF THE STREET LIKE CHRIS MATTHEWS MADE THE PATSIES LOOK BAD. IMAGINE WHAT COBB NELSON AND ADAMS WOULD HAVE DONE AND EDDIE LACY WITH ASTHAMA WOULD HAVE RAN FOR 100 + YDS TODAY. ANY ONE WITH 1/2 A BRAIN KNOWS THIS. 2 SCUMBAG TEAMS PLAYED TODAY AND IT’S BLASPHEME THE LOMBARDI TROPHY HAS TO GO TO A BUNCH OF CHEATERS.

  126. Marshawn, the Sea Hawks disrespected you and it is time to return to the bay. I hope you can get out of there and hook up with the 49ers or the Raiders. They had to let pretty boy vanilla Russel win the game and deny you .The entire reason the Hawks were at the big dance was your running and the fact you are a duel threat receiver. Just dump Seattle ,they blew it by not giving you the ball on the one yard line !!!!!!

  127. I am not a fan of either and really didn’t care who won. Patriots fans, the fact still remains, they cheated to get there, therefore, you all have won another tainted title. You all act like winning the SB will somehow diminish the CHEATING tactics utilized to get you all there; it doesn’t. From now until the end of time the conversation will be “they won XXXX SB’s, BUT….”

    Maybe one day you all will win one without controversy, until then, all of your SB titles will be highlighted with an asterisk.

    Maybe one day you all will be a real dynasty like the Packers, 49ers, Cowboys, and Steelers! But you will have to win a few without controversy to even be mentioned in the same breath.

  128. Patriots fan for the last 38 years. And what I feel now is relief.

    I won’t make any claims that Brady or Belichick or Kraft is the best this or that. Let history sort that stuff out.

    And for you haters, I have nothing to say. The Patriots said it all.

    And to Seattle, you have an amazing team, QB, coach and fan base. You have a chance to do over the next decade what these Patriots have done in the last decade. Good luck to you.

  129. Best part of the Patriots win is we don’t have to read moronic posts about the Legion of Choke being the best defense of all time. Brady carved the vaunted defense for 330 yards and 4 TDs. Too bad Seaclowns.

  130. Seattle will never recover from this.
    Haha I kid. They’ll be getting so high tonight they won’t even remember what happened.

    Hell most Seattle fans didn’t even know they had a pro football team before last year.

  131. THE TEARS OF PATRIOT HATERS TASTE SO SWEET

    WE ARE THE CHAMPS… AND YOU ARE NOT. BAWAAAHAHAHAHAHAHA

  132. To all the gracious fans of other teams… thank you.

    To all the Patriots haters…. LOL. Oh the rage you must feel right now. You WILL NOT sleep tonight. This will gnaw at you all freaking night! You are seething. Let it soak. Let it marinate. Your hands are shaking right now with fury as you’re typing madly away…and you realize that there is nothing you can say or do that can undo what was done tonight.

    IT’S GREAT TO BE A FAN OF THE CHAMPS. WANT TO KNOW? I WILL TELL YOU ABOUT IT. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

  133. For all the clueless cheathawk fans trying to blame bevell, Carroll has the final say and could have easily turned that play into a run, and Wilson could have checked out of that play when he saw the defense, learn the game.

  134. Weird playoffs and SB. You have the calls/non calls with Detroit. The catch/no catch with Dallas. The crazy comeback by Seattle against GB. Then, to cap it off, the wrong play call to decide the SB winner.

  135. Step One: Win Super Bowl

    Step Two: Name Tom Brady MVP

    Step Three: Await apologies from the NFL and ESPN. Or at least a retraction.

    #youhateuscuzyouaintus

    Congratulations, Patriots!!!

  136. 12th Man’s influence in Super Bowls 1-2, now go back to obscurity in the northwest.

    Never thought I’d ever pull for Tom Brady to tie Joe Montana in Super Bowl wins, but Seattle you made it easy!

  137. “Classless act at the end of the game” was a So-called “Patriot” throwing a punch at the start of the play, blamed by the refs but visible to anyone watching TV. “Patriot” must mean the same as the Act which removed civilian Constitutional Rights. Who paid the refs, Btw?
    15 yard penalty ended the game, by the refs, since the Deflatetricks couldn’t seem to move the ball.
    Revisionist history rewards go to New England. Enjoy the steals.

  138. Ooh, cranky. Mommy need to change your diapers, little girl?

    Brady taps center and he bobs his head to draw the encroachment…. missed call…. Still cheaters..

  139. Dilfer in week 4: We saw a weak team tonight, the New England Patriots. Let’s face it they’re NOT THAT GOOD ANYMORE!

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    As I have said I am a true Seahawks fan. I said that the Seahawks would win and they should have won. Worst play call in Carroll’s career and it cost everything. Still I am here and willing to take my lumps/ Bring it on

    —-

    Taking chances giveth (end of the first half)… and they taketh away (the obvious).

    I think you’d be calling him a genius if it worked.

  141. And that, Denver Broncos, is how you win the Super Bowl. WOO!!! The look on Sherman’s face after the interception… PRICELESS!!!

  142. Wait, didn’t Russell Wilson throw that pass? Call was bad, execution was worse…and butler made a great play…other than the 3rd quarter, pats controlled that game…so chill Seattle…better team won…

  143. As a Seahawk fan, I’m not going to waste the time reading all the hate.

    Just came to say congrats to the Pats. Horrible play call to end the game, but you gotta hand it to the defender, he made a great play on the ball. The Pats made the play when they needed to. Enjoy the win. It was a good game and as a Seahawk fan I have nothing to hang my head about. Pretty awesome just to be in back to back superbowls!

  144. This Pats fan will give due credit to Seattle, they gave New England everything they could handle.

    New England dominated the first half, yet just like the Packers, they didn’t come away with the points they should have, and it bit THEM in the butt as well.

    Seattle came back strong in the third quarter, and when I saw that freak-show catch after Brady had charged back to take the lead, my stomach literally turned, and I saw New England losing on another David Tyree-type fluke catch.

    Lined up at the goal line with Marshawn Lynch and three cracks at a touchdown, I will admit, I was ready to see a tragic end for New England.

    This was a GREAT game, and the Seahawks a great team – Doug Baldwin’s simulated end-zone dump, and the Seahawks disgusting brawl aside.

    Anyone who credits Pete Carroll’s play calling for the end result, is short-changing the New England secondary. It may have been a bonehead call, but that ball didn’t intercept itself.

    Give the New England secondary for a smart play, like you would have given the “Legion of Doom” if THEY made that interception.

    Dynasties don’t lose superbowls.

  146. To all of the patriots fans boasting about not winning a superbowl since spygate. You’re right, now it’s DEFLATEGATE, can you all just win one without the CHEATING allegations!

  147. What’s that German word that starts with an “s” that’s when you get pleasure out of the misfortune of others?? What ever it is, I got lots of it.

  148. The Giants held the Pats to 31 points in 2 Super Bowls, but the Legion of Boom gave up 28 tonight. Overrated or what?

  149. i can’t believe nobody has thought of the Antonio Freeman/ Chris Dishman catch. I am a very scarred vikings fan. was surprised Al Michael’s didn’t scream HE DID WHAT?!?!?!?!

    ___________________________________
    Only by people who don’t know what they’re talking about. The whole “how many SBs have they won since spygate” bit was always a ridiculous insult. Why? Because what they got busted for in spygate wasn’t against the rules in the years they won those championships. So, how could those wins be invalidated by a rule that didn’t exist? That’s like saying the Steelers dynasty’s wins didn’t count because they later instituted the Mel Blount rule.

    As for this year, what’s the issue? Deflategate is a silly issue. If the Pats are proven to have intentionally deflated the balls, they should be punished. That hasn’t happened yet. Even if it does, the score was 45-7, and the Pats did better in the 2nd half with reinflated balls. So, there’s no logical way of arguing (no matter how far you try to stretch the facts) that deflategate (if they even did it) helped them get to or win this SB. Leave the asterisks where they belong…next to Barry Bonds’ stats.

  151. We win. You cry. We win and you claim cheating. You build an empire and people want to tear it down.

    Haters!!! 4th ring. Tom Brady GOAT. Losers walk!

  152. To: Seattle
    From: New England

    Look forward to seeing you in next year’s Super Bowl.

  153. Congrats to Hawks for really making a game of it. I was a tad upset with my teams play in first half. We should have been up by two scores. Even Brady admitted as much. The two best teams at never giving up played tonight. It just came down to a young QB making one mistake at the wrong time. Brady made two of them, but not when it mattered. I suspect the Hawks will be in the thick of it for years to come. As for my Pats, they will be there again next year. No doubt. Especially since the boys got it done. They will remember what it took. Talking about the path is quite a bit different from walking the path. And the Pats walked it!

  154. When the hawks scored the td to go to 24 Sherman was showboating on the sidelines along with the rest of the team. Wilson and Carroll were both all smiles like they had it in the bag. I loved the replay on the int when they showed Sherman’s face. He was looking around for the first ref he could cry to. The long-ball passes by Wilson were all prayers including the last one. Their luck finally ran out. Pete Carroll must of called Mike McCarthy up on advice to do the last play. Lets go for a pass and not to our RB who is so hard to take down.

    Grayr8dr, you are an imbecile. “Cheater” that is original. How long did it take to come up with this old and tired phrase.

    Time to join the real world.

  156. I’m very happy for the entire Pats organization. They had to stand up to a ton of crap being heaped on them for 2 solid weeks,and they managed to block it out and come back with the World Championship. That speaks volumes about the toughness and comradery of this team and it’s management. For all of the people still trashing them and saying they only won because Pete Carroll made a bad decision, the fact remains that the won the Super Bowl. Seattle is a very good team and they played a great game But-they lost. DEAL WITH IT HATERS!

  157. Right before the final SEA offensive play, I turned to my brother and said “Are they going to do like the 9ers did (by not giving the ball to Frank Gore in similar situation)?” At least we now all know the answer to the question “What’s the worst/dumbest play call in SB History?” By the way, NE had the league’s worst short-yardage D v. the run this season, making that call even more stupefying.

  158. I don’t think most people appreciate just how great of a play Butler made on that INT. He picked it, but his momentum carried him into the endzone; if he didn’t have the presence of mind to jump OUT of the endzone, the Seahawks could’ve tackled him for a safety, and then gotten the ball back on a free kick.
    ===
    I don’t think he actually left the end zone. The pick and collision were right on the goal line.

    Unbelievably obvious fix. Are you kidding???? Why would the Seahawks throw there?!?!? Why?!?? You have marshawn lynch on the 1. Why?!?!?!

    David Copperfield must have been involved in orchestrating that miracle catch by Kerse.

  160. Brady taps center and he bobs his head to draw the encroachment…. missed call…. Still cheaters..

    Ok… False start. Half the distance to the goal.

    An illegal procedure penalty means nothing there. It doesn’t give you a safety.

  161. Just heard on the news that there were a lot of earthquakes in Arizona and Seattle. Maybe not that big of a deal but they all happened at the same time. Goodell said it was from all of the Seattle band wagon fans jumping off the wagon.

  162. Congrats to you Pats fans! I’m a hater but have total respect for what your has done the past 15 years. Don’t let the haters like me bother you.

  163. Not Spygate but Deflategate this time.
    Pats just can’t help themselves and can’t with without cheating. Ever.

    Hey idiot – I hope they don’t let you out into society. Your mind appears all over the place. Did you have a lot of money on Seattle?

    Get help before it is too late. Thanks for stopping by.

  165. 12th man fans. Huge life long Pats fan here. Your team is great. When the final chapter is written on Wilson’s career he will take his rightful place next to Montana and Brady. I hope you enjoy the next 15 years as much as I’ve enjoyd the lat 15. And we’re not done yet. But when we pass the baton, don’t drop it. It will be a heck of a ride.

  166. Marshall Faulk looked awfully uncomfortable on the NFL set after the game. He could barely talk to Darelle Revis.

    Please keep all sharp objects away from poor Marshall.

    This guy will hate forever.

  167. I guess crime does pay and cheaters do prosper.
    Another asterisk for the Deflatriots.

  168. To all of the patriots fans boasting about not winning a superbowl since spygate. You’re right, now it’s DEFLATEGATE, can you all just win one without the CHEATING allegations!
    —-

    Patriots already have 4 titles without cheating. AND THEY WILL GET ONE FOR THE THUMB NEXT YEAR.

    PATRIOT NATION OWNS ALL PATRIOT HATERS

    YOU GOT OWNED. BOW TO THE CHAMPS. GET ON YOUR KNEES AND KISS THE RING.

  169. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA HATERS

    YOUR MISERY IS OUR JOY

    WE RELISH YOUR PAIN

    BOW DOWN TO THE KINGS OF THE NFL

  170. Congrats to both teams on a great game. If that ball ain’t intercepted…

    New England Patriots are the real dynasty.

  171. “Congrats to you Pats fans! I’m a hater but have total respect for what your has done the past 15 years. Don’t let the haters like me bother you.”

    Not a loser, at all. Much respect to you, bro. At least you can admit it.

  172. So when the deflated ball investigation comes to a close and it is revealed the Pats directed the deflation, will the championship be vacated? That makes four asterisks! Classless cheats.

  173. I didn’t have a horse in the race. That was a really fantastic game last night. Top five in my lifetime – I’ve seen ’em all since ’84. Really great game.

  174. To every moron who actually thinks that the Patriots football preference or taping signals (just like EVERY team who has ever played) has an effect on the outcome of a game, you can now go have another good cry in your beer.

    The Patriots win because:

    1. They have talent
    2. They are well-coached
    3. They developed a winning culture and mindset as an organization, and have maintained it longer than anyone.

    That’s it…and the reason you’re really angry is because, well…you know it.

  175. From the viewpoint of a 49ers fan, we have seen this before. An obvious comparison to the 9ers mistaken play calling at the end of the SuperBowl 47, when trying(failing) to get the ball to Crabtree in the endzone instead of letting Gore run it in.

    Really, what was Carroll and Wilson thinking. I was stunned they didn’t give the ball to Lynch. Wow…

    I wonder if Jim Harbaugh texted Carroll after the game:
    🙁

  176. Also, you pats fans may want to rewatch the end of the game to see who actually started the fight. You may be a bit surprised. Irvin was defending a teammate that got punched by a patriot.

  177. NE Fan to everyone else> You hate us cause you ain’t us or is it anus..LOL I love you touchdown Tommy! Thank you Pats for years of watching win after win after win… It’s been a great 14 years of football for the fans of NE.

  178. Congrats Patriots fans. Dumb call at the end, but not taking anything away from your team’s performance. Made the plays that needed to be made to come back in the 4th.

    This one will sting for awhile, but the Hawks will be back strong and contend for many SBs to come.

  179. So, let me see if I’ve got this straight.
    You say the Seahawks are classless.
    You say the Seahawks fans are classless.
    You show how little class WE have by BEING CLASSLESS YOURSELVES.
    Makes perfect sense, way to make your case.

    It was a great Super Bowl! Congratulations to the Patriots! Here’s to a Super Bowl L rematch next year! No quit in either team, HEART OF CHAMPIONS on BOTH SIDES!!! CONGRATULATIONS PATRIOTS FANS!!!

  180. Dumb call.

    Injuries hurt – LOB and Avril. Before Avril had to leave Brady’s QB rating was .26 with 0 TDs and 2 picks.

    But hey, it’s all part of the game and the Pats came back from 10 down in the fourth vs the best D in football.

    Congrats to the Pats.

  181. Hey, did everyone hear? New England are Super Bowl Champions! Still full from feasting on all those troll tears. So sweet, so satisfying.
