Seahawks 31, Patriots 24

Goal-line stand caps Seattle win

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — This time, the Seahawks won it at the goal line.

It certainly won't make up for the Super Bowl loss two seasons back, but Seattle's goal-line stand lifted it over the Patriots.

Tom Brady couldn't connect with tight end Rob Gronkowski on a fade pattern on fourth down as New England failed four times from inside the 2 in the dying moments.

It was reminiscent of how the Seahawks lost the 2015 Super Bowl when Malcolm Butler intercepted a Russell Wilson pass at the goal line to win the NFL title for the Patriots.

Doug Baldwin caught three touchdowns, including a 15-yarder for the final margin. Strangely, Seattle went for two points and failed on the conversion, leaving the Patriots a chance to tie with a touchdown and an extra point.

But former Buc LeGarrette Blount, who earlier rushed for three touchdowns, couldn't get into the end zone from close range, nor could Brady on a pair of sneaks.

Brady's interception in the second quarter derailed the Patriots' chance to tie the 1960 Cleveland Browns for an NFL record nine games without an interception.
