Seahawks make valiant stand to stop New England (AFP)

The Seattle Seahawks engineered a stouthearted goal line stand in the final seconds to beat New England 31-24 and gain a small measure of revenge for losing Super Bowl 49 to the Patriots. New England (7-2) had a first-and-goal and failed on four tries. On the final attempt Tom Brady lobbed a pass in the direction of tight end Rob Gronkowski, who drove into Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor and the two hit the ground as the ball fell incomplete.
