VIDEO: Remembering When Malcolm Butler Intercepted Russell Wilson at the Goal Line to Win Super Bowl XLIX
There are some moments in football that just happen so quickly with such an enormous impact on the game that they're almost too hard to process in real time.
Well, Malcolm Butler's goal-line interception of Russell Wilson to steal a win in Super Bowl XLIX certainly qualifies as one of those moments.
It was a bang-bang play, but Butler saw his opportunity and seized it without hesitation. While the Pats still had a four-point lead, the Seahawks were marching on that drive and really knocking on the door for a score.
Seattle also infamously chose not to run Marshawn Lynch at the goal line in this situation, who was one of the most powerful running backs in the league at the time.
While this was an excruciatingly painful memory for Seahawks fans, Pats fan won't soon forget the excitement and surprise that came with this one.
