Seahawks’ Super Bowl play leaves fans scratching their heads

What was he thinking ?

The question we all asked ourselves during the last minute of Super Bowl XLIX.

The short pass to Ricardo Lockette, which was intercepted by Patriots rookie Malcolm Butler, led the Patriots to a win of 28-24.

Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll admitted to making a dumb play, and said it was a game he won’t forget.

Weeks before the game, the New England Patriots were caught deflating footballs for their win against the Colts, which led them to the Super Bowl. This controversy led authorities to keep a sharp eye on the Patriots leading up to the game.

Last time the Seahawks and Patriots went head-to-head was in 2012. The score was 24-23. After the game, Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman went to Patriots quarterback Tom Brady with the final words, “You mad, bro?“

And then karma struck back.

Former Seahawk, now Patriot, Brandon Browner got in Sherman’s and repeated the same words: “You mad, bro?” Browner said it wasn’t how it looked; he was just bumping heads with a former teammate, but didn’t have a helmet on.

In addition to the game, half-time also blew fans away. Katy Perry performed, with guest appearances from Lenny Kravitz and Missy Elliot, legends on-stage. Perry rocked the stage with her songs “Roar,” “I Kissed A Girl,” “California Girls,” “Firework” and “Dark Horse.”
