Super comeback gives Pats 4th NFL title, 28-24 over Seahawks

The Associated Press

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) A super comeback gave the New England Patriots an NFL title that had eluded them for a decade.

Tom Brady's 3-yard touchdown pass to Julian Edelman put them ahead with 2:02 left. Then little-known rookie Malcom Butler preserved it with an interception in the end zone with 20 seconds remaining and the Patriots dethroned the defending champion Seattle Seahawks 28-24 on Sunday night.

Two weeks after Seattle beat the Green Bay Packers after trailing by 12 points with less than three minutes remaining, the Patriots rallied on football's biggest stage.

With four touchdown passes and a Super Bowl record 37 completions, Brady won his third championship game MVP. And he added to a legacy that had been tarnished when the Patriots lost their last two title games after winning their third in four years in 2005.
