The New England Patriots pushed through controversy and defeated the Seattle Seahawks last night.
The game came down to the final :20 seconds and Seattle looked as if they had the win. An unfortunate play call led to possibly the most dramatic Super Bowl finish ever, with Russell Wilson attempting a touch down pass at the .5 yard line. This was intercepted by Butler and the game was pretty much over, yet the Patriots were nice enough to give the Seahawks a tiny chance at redemption, which fell short of anything exciting. Emotions were intense and fights broke out in the end zone resulting in Bruce Irvin, Seattle Seahawks linebacker, being ejected from the game for punching Rob Gronkowski, tight end of the New England Patriots. The New England Patriots came out on top with a score of 28-24.
Earlier in the week the Patriots were accused of deflating 11 of the 12 game balls in the AFC championship game against the Indianapolis Colts. The Patriots beat the Colts 45-7 but still people wanted to know if the balls were really deflated. The NFL has since issued an apology to the Patriots for accusing them of “deflate gate”.
Super Bowl 49 far surpassed last years Super Bowl in which the Seahawks stomped the Denver Broncos 43-8.
