And Tom Brady, who went 37/50 for 328 yards, 4 TDs, and 2 INTs, won the MVP award.
The Seahawks started slow, surged in the second and third quarter, and faded in the fourth, as the best defense in the league failed to hold a 10 point lead. Still, Seattle was poised to take the lead in the final 30 seconds when Offensive Coordinator Darrell Bevell called an inside slant from the one yard line on 2nd and Goal and Russell Wilson threw an interception.
