rsey . Judging by his performa

Here’s the truth about the New England Patriots six Super Bowl appearances over the past 14 seasons, something that was reinforced by the unlikely finish of Super Bowl XLIX and the Patriots fourth Super Bowl win under Bill Belichick. James Rodriguez Jersey . They could have won them all - or lost them all. But whether it was John Madden screaming at a young Tom Brady to kneel down and go to overtime against the Rams 13 years ago, the fourth-quarter lead changes against Carolina two years later or the two games against the Giants – one lost after a catch off of David Tyree’s helmet and the other when Mario Manningham made one of the clutch catches in Super Bowl history, the Patriots in the Super Bowl have been full value for the dramatic. New England’s 24-21 win over Philadelphia a decade ago was a little more comfortable than the score suggests but, in total, New England’s Super Bowl experience under Bill Belichick is a great reminder of the slim margin between greatness and goatness. The Patriots appeared to be on the wrong side of destiny for the third time in a row when Seattle’s Jermaine Kearse made a catch that will go into the all-time Super Bowl vault, giving the Seahawks first-and-goal on the New England five-yard line, down 28-24 with just over a minute to play. It was one of those rare plays which all the players on the field - and the 70,000 or so on hand at University of Phoenix Stadium - had given up on...everyone, but Kearse. You’d have to slow down the replay to count just how many times Kearse touched the ball before he actually brought it into his body for good, but at that moment, it sure felt as though the hard part was over for Seattle. A play later, Marshawn Lynch, whose performance justified every bit of attention he managed to suck up during Super Bowl week – inadvertently or not – got to within a yard of the goal line. And when Belichick inexplicably allowed the clock to run down to under 30 seconds, it sure felt as though the Patriots were about to earn their third-straight Super Bowl loss. Close games or not, had that come to pass, it would surely have changed the conversation about the place of Bill Belichick and Tom Brady in NFL and Super Bowl history. Despite their remarkable consistency, their records and the playoff appearances at a time when keeping great teams together isnt easy, the conversation would always have circled back to those three straight Super Bowl losses. But all that changed in an instant, when a rookie defensive back named Malcolm Butler, who’d been picked on by Seattle during most of the second half, stepped up and made a play that not only changed the result of the most widely watched sporting event in North America, but also perhaps football history. “For a rookie to make a play that big to win us the game is really unbelievable,” said Brady. Speaking of football history, there will certainly be those who will look back years from now and wonder why the Seahawks didn’t pound the ball at least one more time with Lynch, whose hard running style seemed to soften up the New England defence the longer the game went on. “I’m a little surprised,” said Seattle corner Richard Sherman. Instead, the Seahawks called a pass play and quarterback Russell Wilson tried to force a ball on a slant to Ricardo Lockette. Had that pass been complete and Seattle won, its very possible that Chris Matthews, the former Winnipeg Blue Bomber, would have become the most unlikely Super Bowl MVP of all time. Matthews, who last played in the CFL during an injury-plagued 2013 season in which he dressed for just five games and caught only 14 passes, entered Super Bowl XLIX without an NFL reception, known mostly as the guy from the CFL who caught the onside kick two weeks ago that allowed the Seahawks to complete their comeback over the Green Bay Packers. But with Seattle’s offence absolutely stunted during the first half of the Super Bowl, it was Matthews who made a spectacular 44-yard catch that shifted field position and led to Seattle’s first score of the game. When the Seahawks rallied in the final minute of the first half to tie the game at 14-14, it was Matthews who made the touchdown catch. So by the time he went over 100 yards for the game during the third quarter, there was legitimate game MVP speculation. Instead, Matthews becomes a quirky footnote on a game that had enough storylines to obscure his still remarkable night. What stands out about Super Bowl XLIX beyond the dramatic ending is how two teams at the very top of their sport, and especially their respective quarterbacks, could appear so dominant at some instances of the game and so overwhelmed at others. Tom Brady set a Super Bowl record by completing 20 passes during the games first half, then went cold in the third quarter, which included his second interception of the game that led directly to a Seattle touchdown. He was eventually named the games MVP while setting a record for completions in a Super Bowl with 37, including his final 10 attempts. Russell Wilson completed just four passes in the entire first half and yet rallied his team with 17 unanswered points and a 10-point lead before throwing the pass that ended Seattle’s season in the most painful of ways. It was the kind of night that answers the question for anyone who still wonders why the NFL remains on top of the North American sports universe, despite concussions and issues of player conduct, despite Deflategate and players who openly question the integrity of the commissioner. In the end, on the biggest stage, with the lights on bright, the NFL delivered just what we wanted, like it so often does. Thomas Muller Bayern Munich Jersey .
