The experts on the Betting Line and the fans who bet on the Super Bowl said this was an even line, A Pick em game! They were right. This Super Bowl game came down to the last seconds with mega drama in a “Game for the Ages”.
In one of the best Super Bowls that I have ever witnessed, possibly the best, the New England Patriots outlasted the Seattle Seahawks 28-24. There were spectacular catches, great quarterback play by Brady and Wilson; there was “the Beast” Marshawn Lynch running over people and “Gronk” catching balls all over the field and fighting with several Seahawk players at the end of the game.
It all came down to one play; Second and Goal on the Patriots one yard line for the Seahawks to win the game with twenty seconds left and then, “The Call”, which will be talked about for the next 25 years. Pete Carroll or the Seahawks offensive coordinator or Russel Wilson(we are not sure which one yet) but the call was made to throw a inside slant route from the one yard line which was picked off in dramatic fashion by rookie Malcom Butler of the Patriots.
It does not matter who made the call but Butler made a great play and New England and Tom Brady hoisted the Super Bowl trophy for the 4th time since 2000. What an unbelievable game! If that is the only game you watched all year, you picked the one to watch.
Despite all the off field suspensions, arrests, ball deflation hoopla and other distractions, the NFL still puts on a great show and a record TV audience watched the game. I need to start putting my fantasy team together for next year.
