The New England Patriots rally from a ten-point deficit to beat the Seattle Seahawks, 28-24, in Super Bowl XLIX. Coach Belichick:
I couldn’t be prouder of this team. These guys have been counted out many times through the course of the year by a lot of people but they always believed in themselves and just kept fighting. This is a great team — a great group of competitors who never gave in, never lost their will. Mentally and physically, as tough of a group as I’ve been around, and I’ve been around some. These guys are really special.
