Five years ago today: The worst play call in Super Bowl history. Seahawks down 4, with 26 seconds to go and a timeout from the Patriots 1-yard line. Russell Wilson passes instead of handing off to Marshawn Lynch. Malcolm Butler intercepts. Game over.
Malcolm Jenkins’ success in the box and as a spy on Wilson was large in the first game. Something to keep an eye on as this game progresses. Especially, with Russell Wilson already showing how special creating second play opportunities.
Malcolm Butler’s name will go down in NFL history. - Undrafted from West Alabama - One start all year - Entered Super Bowl in 2nd half - Gave up huge Kearse catch - Picked off Wilson at the goal line - Patriots won Super Bowl XLIX
