Patriots rally from behind to defeat Seahawks in Super Bowl XLIX

GLENDALE, USA - Tom Brady and the New England Patriots defeated Seattle 28-24 in Super Bowl 49 on Sunday, February 1 (Monday PH time) denying the Seahawks a second consecutive title in the NFL championship spectacular.

With their fourth Super Bowl triumph, and first in a decade, the Patriots reconfirmed their status as the league's dominant team of the past 15 years.

To do it, they rallied from a 24-14 third-quarter deficit, with Brady's three-yard touchdown pass to Julian Edelman putting them ahead with 2:02 remaining.

Rookie Malcom Butler's goal-line interception of a pass by Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson with 20 seconds remaining preserved the victory in a title showdown that lived up to its billing as a clash of titans.

Brady threw two of his four touchdown passes in the fourth quarter to rally the Pats against the most feared defense in the league.

Brady joined boyhood idol Joe Montana and Terry Bradshaw as the only quarterbacks with four Super Bowl wins, having also led them to the title after the 2001, 2003 and 2004 seasons.

He also set the record for most career Super Bowl touchdown passes on the way to earning Most Valuable Player honors.

The Seahawks, who rallied in the final minutes of the National Conference final to book their return to the Super Bowl, looked like they might pull off another miracle in the waning moments, moving down to the Patriots' 5-yard line after Jermaine Kearse came up with a stunning catch.

Superstar running back Marshawn Lynch was stopped just short of the goal line on the ensuing play, but the Seahawks didn't go to him on the next play.

Instead, Wilson attempted a short pass to Ricardo Lockette that Butler seized to end Seattle's hopes. - Rappler.com
