The New England Patriots are winners for the fourth time. The team can now say with pride that it took a win despite ‘deflate-gate’ and allegations that it deliberately underinflated footballs used in the AFC Championship Game against the Indianapolis Colts on January 18, 2015.
The night began with a lead by the Seattle Seahawks until the Patriots made a stunning comeback with the help of Tom Brady, who twice intercepted and refused to give up despite his team being down by 10 points.
With a 28-24 victory over the Seahawks, Tom Brady and the Patriots coach Bill Belichick, won the fourth Super Bowl putting them on the same pedestal as Joe Montana and Terry Bradshaw, two other quarterbacks that have done it before them.
Katy Perry, who entered the stage on a mechanical Tiger, threw the night into a party mode at half time with pyrotechnics, dancing and songs from some of her latest albums, while the rocker Lenny Kravitz joined her singing “I Kissed A Girl,” giving the spectators and football fans a night to remember.
Besides Katy Perry and Kravitz, Snoop Dog and Missy Elliot entertained the night, while John Major sang “The Star Spangled Banner” to the audience’ satisfaction before the game kick off.
At half time, the Seahawks continued to maintain a lead as Chris Matthew a 25-year-old rookie, made a series of catches giving the Seahawks an edge despite absolute possession by the Patriots.
But at the last minute of the game, Patriots cornerback Malcolm Butler, made a saving interception after a ridiculous catch by Seahawks Jermaine Kearse, that left the Patriots within victory.
Unfortunately, Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, threw an interception couple of plays later that sealed victory for the Patriots, ending the game in a 28-24 upset.
“I just had a vision that I was going to make a big play and it came true,” said Butler, 24 after the game.
When asked about his view of the game, MVP of the night Brady said: “This has been a long journey. I’ve been at it for 15 years. This one came down to the end and this time, we made the plays. Our defense what can you say about them? Malcolm, what a play, for a rookie to make a play like that and win us the Super Bowl is unbelievable.”
