Patriots Win Super Bowl

After a perfect fourth quarter drive and an end-zone interception in the final seconds of the game, the New England Patriots vanquished the Seahawks to win the Super Bowl.  With only seconds left, rookie Malcolm Butler intercepted a potentially game winning touchdown pass to ensure the Patriots victory.  Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was named MVP for the third time in his career.  Last night’s win make Brady one of a select few who have won four Super Bowl rings as starting quarterback.
