New England Patriots Autographed Team Signed Photo Framed - Super Bowl XLIX - Butler Interception- 26x26
With under a minute left in the fourth quarter Butler was matched up with Jermaine Kearse. Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson threw a 33-yard sideline pass to Kearse that Butler deflected. As Kearse fell to the ground, the tipped pass landed on him, he juggled it and eventually retained possession.Kearse's catch was widely reported as one of the greatest in Super Bowl history.After recognizing that Kearse had made the catch and was not down by contact, Butler pushed him out of bounds at the five-yard line
Two plays later, with 20 seconds remaining and the Seahawks on the Patriots' one-yard line, Butler intercepted an attempted pass to Ricardo Lockette at the goal line, returning possession to the Patriots and maintaining their 28-24 lead. Butler said that he had guessed correctly that Wilson would throw to Lockette, having read the Seahawks two receiver stack formation. "From preparation, I remembered the formation they were in ... I just beat him to the route and made the play." Butler gave credit to Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia for preparing players well for the game.The interception was the first of Butler's NFL career.It was the only interception of a pass attempt from the 1-yard line during the 2014 NFL season, of the 109 attempts.
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who received a 2015 Chevrolet Colorado as part of his Super Bowl XLIX MVP Award, said he planned to give the truck to Butler. At the request of Tom Brady, Chevrolet awarded the truck directly to Butler.
