Eighteen seconds away from Super Bowl XLIX ending, the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks ended up fighting each other.

Following a late interception thrown by Russell Wilson in the Patriots’ end zone, New England took over from its 1-yard line. After encroachment was called on Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett, the Patriots moved up to their 6-yard line, where quarterback Tom Brady took a knee.

Then the fight broke out.

Seahawks linebacker Bruce Irvin was ejected, and Brady took a knee on the next play to run out the clock and clinch New England’s 28-24 win.
