That much was clear on Sunday night, when the Seattle Seahawks avenged their Super Bowl XLIX loss with a 31-24 win over the Patriots. However, when Tom Brady, 39, attempted to throw the game-winning pass to Rob Gronkowski, 27, Kam was there to prevent Gronk from catching the ball. "I'm going to go out there and do my job, and do what they tell me to do". He tried to bulldoze him, and you just can't bulldoze him.

"I knew what I was capable of and that it was just a matter of time". The call was similar to the Seahawks calling a pass play from the New England 1 with just seconds remaining in Super Bowl 49.

Despite the crowd's perceived lack of enthusiasm, Carroll says he still enjoyed the game.

Russell Wilson's stat line Sunday: 25 of 37, 348 yards, three touchdowns, no interceptions, a 124.6 rating. Brady first would have had to get the Patriots a touchdown and then, from the two-yard line, get them into the end zone again with a two-point conversion. "So, as we continue to get healthy and continue to execute and get better at that, I think we'll continue to improve and hopefully continue to win". "We were in a tough battle, back and forth game against a good opponent, you learn a lot about yourself, you learn a lot about how you compete as a football team and what you do when you face adversity". Justin Coleman and Logan Ryan were targeted repeatedly on Sunday night, and the team's habit of rotating through players in the secondary suggests they're still searching for the right combination of guys to make this thing work.

The Seattle defense limited tom Brady to zero touchdowns, yet running back Lagarrette Blount accounted for all of the TD's with three. That number represented a larger audience than any of the World Series games outside of the Chicago Cubs' historical win in Game 7.

New England's Martellus Bennett had seven receptions for 102 yards to lead all receivers.

It was a fierce, sometimes viciously physical game.

The half ended with the Seahawks on top 19-14. And it came to be because the Seattle defense was up to the challenge of trying to stop Brady, Bill Belichick and that potent New England offense.

That includes all five attempts last season, which was the only time since 2010 that Seattle had attempted more than one two-point try in a season in what was also the first year that the PAT kicks were moved back to the 15, which was done in part to encourage more two-point tries (a decision Carroll enthusiastically supported).

Remember, he had three TDs, too, missing a fourth TD by inches.

Offensively, LeGarrette Blount led the force scoring three rushing touchdowns, plowing through multiple defenders to do so.

It was the 97th straight game, including playoffs, in which the Seahawks haven't trailed by more than 10 points in the fourth quarter. DeShawn Shead made the pick.

Brady, who threw the team's first interception of the season, was 23 of 32 for 316 yards. New England as a team only has eight more than those two.
