Patriots Win super Bowl XLIX

Patriots Win super Bowl  XLIX (1)

What a finish, what a game, what a quarterback.

The New England Patriots defeated the Seattle Seahawks 28-24, but that does not come close to telling the story. This was a game which had it all.

A last-minute interception by a rookie free agent, a catch to beat David Tyree, a previously unknown receiver making his first four catches in the NFL and another chapter in the storied dynasty of Brady and Bill Belichick.

In winning the MVP title for the third time in his career, Tom Brady showed all of his trademark precision and poise to lead the Patriots to their fourth Super Bowl title, somehow coming back from a ten-point deficit to defeat the defending champion Seattle Seahawks. 

In doing so, Brady shattered records galore. He joins the likes of Joe Montana and Terry Bradshaw on four rings, and is now the all-time leader with 12 Super Bowl touchdown passes and completions on 37.

In his record sixth appearance in the NFL’s seasonal showpiece, the 37-year-old showed all the resilience and leadership gleaned from his storied career, using short passes to slice through Seattle’s No 1 ranked defense
