New England Patriots cornerback Malcolm Butler intercepted Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson at the goal line to seal the win in Super Bowl XLIX.

Tom Brady ties record for most Super Bowl wins by a quarterback

After the Patriots went ahead 28-24 on a three-yard touchdown pass from Tom Brady to Julian Edelman, the Seahawks had 2:02 remaining on the game clock.

On the first play of the drive, Marshawn Lynch made a 31-yard catch from Russell Wilson. After a couple of incompletions, Jermaine Kearse then made a circus catch at the Patriots five-yard line, and the Seahawks looked poised to take the lead.

But Butler picked off Wilson with 24 seconds remaining to end Seattle's bid for back-to-back championships. New England then ran off the clock to win the game.
