Super Bowl XLIX
Pete Carroll and the Seahawks had an opportunity to kickstart another dynasty in 2014. The Legion of Boom faced the Patriots and had a golden opportunity to seal victory in the game’s dying moments. Malcolm Butler pulled off a shocking interception to seal the win for New England.
Seattle passed the ball on the goal line instead of running it with Marshawn Lynch and stunned the world in the process. It didn’t matter what statistics Carroll threw out to support his decision. They should have given it to Lynch but they didn’t and they paid the price. Belichick laughed all the way home to Boston (via CBS News).
