The New England Patriots defeated the Seattle Seahawks 28-24 on Sunday to win Super Bowl XLIX.
Patriots cornerback Malcolm Butler stepped in front of intended receiver Ricardo Lockette and intercepted Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson at the 1-yard line with 20 seconds left to seal the victory.
For the Patriots, the win gives them four Super Bowl titles — their first in 10 years.
Patriots quarterback Tom Brady completed a Super Bowl-record 37 passes en route to 328 yards, with four touchdowns and two interceptions and was named the game’s Most Valuable Player. It is Brady’s third Super Bowl MVP award, tying Hall of Famer Joe Montana for the most ever.
Brady also tied Montana and fellow Hall of Famer Terry Bradshaw as the only quarterbacks to win four Super Bowls. Brady broke Montana’s record for most career Super Bowl touchdown passes in the win over Seattle; he now has 13 in his career.
Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman had nine receptions for 109 yards and a touchdown. Rob Gronkowski and Brandon LaFell scored the Patriots’ other touchdowns in the game.
