Wilson then drove the Seahawks 50 yards in 6 plays, finishing the drive with a 3 yard touchdown pass to Doug Baldwin, to take a 24-14 lead. Brady’s next two possessions totaled 6 plays and 9 yards.

He completed 13 of 15 passes for 124 yards and two touchdowns, with a 140.7 rating for the quarter. His last pass was the three yard winner to Edelman.

Wilson then threw two incomplete passes. Then, on third and 10 Wilson completed an 11 yard pass to Ricardo Lockette to give Seattle first and 10 on the New England 38 yard line.

Lynch then went left tackle for 4 yards putting the ball at the New England 1 yard line. Then, on second and goal from the 1 yard line Wilson was intercepted by Malcolm Butler, ending Seattle’s repeat hopes.
