SEAHAWKS STOP PATRIOTS ON GOAL LINE
|Seattle vs. New England (Week 10, 2016)||8 p.m.||NBCSN|
In a rematch of Super Bowl XLIX — when New England beat Seattle on Malcolm Butler’s late interception at the goal line — the Seahawks travelled to Foxborough face the Patriots on Sunday Night Football in Week 10 of the 2016 season.
In a back-and-forth game which featured five lead changes, Tom Brady and the Patriots received the ball on their own 25-yard line facing a seven-point deficit with less than five minutes remaining in the game. Brady led New England down the field, setting up a 1st-and-goal from the Seahawks’ two-yard line with 43 seconds remaining, but Seattle’s defense stopped the Patriots on four consecutive plays from inside the two-yard line to secure a 31-24 victory.
Russell Wilson passed for 348 yards with three touchdowns — all to wide receiver Doug Baldwin — for a 124.6 passer rating in the victory, while Brady passed for 316 yards and Patriots running back LeGarrette Blount rushed for three touchdowns.
Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth called the game from Gillette Stadium.
