Butler picks off Wilson to seal Patriots Super Bowl XLIX victory (3/11)

After the Patriots grabbed a 28-24 lead just before the two-minute warning, the Seahawks still had plenty of time to mount a game-winning drive. When Seahawks receiver Jermaine Kearse made a ridiculous catch for a big gain, it seemingly set up the Seahawks for the winning score. Instead, on a second-and-goal play from the 1-yard line, Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson’ quick slant pass was picked off by Patriots rookie defensive back Malcolm Butler. It was shocking development, and a play call that will be debated for as long as the game of football is played.

Butler’s timely interception gave the Patriots a fourth Super Bowl title in the Tom Brady-Bill Belichick era, and helped ease some of the pain that came from New England’s loss in the Super Bowl in the same building seven years prior.
