Patriots @ Seahawks: Super Bowl XLIX thriller revisited in rematch five years on

The New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks meet again on Sunday night for the first time since a truly memorable meeting in Super Bowl XLIX that went right down to the wire - or, should we say, the final play on the goal line...

Tom Brady threw four touchdown passes to lead the Patriots past the Seahawks 28-24 on that fateful February night in Arizona five years' ago, but the game will mostly be remembered for Malcolm Buttler's interception with 26 seconds left.

In one of the craziest coaching calls in NFL history, Pete Carroll opted not to five the ball to his 'Beast Mode' running back Marshawn Lynch, who had already totalled 102 yards (and one TD) on the ground, instead calling a pass play on 2nd and Goal at the one-yard line.
