A Shocking Super Bowl

The New England Patriots win Super Bowl XLIX with a dramatic ending.

NFL fans are still trying to make sense of Super Bowl XLIX’s shocking ending. The championship game finished with a dramatic end-zone interception that made for one of the most exciting endings in Super Bowl history. The New England Patriots defeated the Seattle Seahawks 28-24.
With just seconds to go until the end of the game, the Seahawks reached the half-yard line. But in a shocking call, Seahawks’ quarterback Russel Wilson threw the ball instead of having their powerful and reliable running back Marshawn Lynch run it in for a touchdown. The game-ending pass was intercepted by Patriots rookie Malcolm Butler.
"When they passed the ball, I was kind of surprised by it," Patriots nose tackle Vince Wilfork said. Some of the Seahawks were bewildered, too. "I don't understand how you don't give it to the best back in the league," linebacker Bruce Irvin said.
Many fans are calling it the worst call in Super Bowl history and blaming Seahawk’s Coach Pete Carroll for the loss. “There is nobody to blame but me,” Carroll said. “They busted their tails and unfortunately it didn’t work out … It’s a very, very hard lesson.”
