Video: Patriots' Malcolm Butler gets kiss from Robert Kraft mid-interview

Monday February 2nd, 2015

New England Patriots cornerback Malcolm Butler was pulled away from a post-game interview by Robert Kraft for a quick congratulatory kiss on the cheek after the Patriots' 28-24 Super Bowl XLIX win over the Seattle Seahawks.

Butler, a rookie, had one of the game's biggest plays when he picked off Russell Wilson with the Seahawks a yard away from the end zone. The interception was the first of Butler's career.

Patriots' Malcolm Butler says he had vision he would make big play

The Patriots took over at their 1-yard line, and a Seahawks encroachment penalty moved the ball up five yards. After Brady took a knee, a fight broke out, which moved the ball to the Patriots' 20. Brady took another knee to secure the win.
