Super Bowl countdown moment No. 1: Second-and-Dumb

BY foxsports • February 5, 2016

As we count down to Super Bowl 50 in Santa Clara, Calif., it's time to look back on the magical and memorable moments in the 49 previous Super Bowls. FOX Sports senior NFL writer Alex Marvez has ranked the 50 greatest moments in the big game's big history, and today, we look back at top moment in Super Bowl history, when the Seahawks blew a chance to repeat, and handed the Patriots a fourth title.

Having driven to the New England 1-yard line with 26 seconds and one timeout remaining, Seattle seemed likely to try scoring the go-ahead touchdown on a Marshawn Lynch run.

Instead, Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell called a second-down pass with disastrous results.

Patriots cornerback Malcolm Butler jumped wide receiver Ricardo Lockette's route and intercepted quarterback Russell Wilson to seal the New England win.

Final score: New England 28, Seattle 24

Malcolm Butler shocked the world with this play.

Butler didn't get game MVP, but he preserved the win.

Butler crashed into Lockette, but was making a play on the ball, so no pass interference was called.
