GLENDALE, Ariz.–Tom Brady may have been the MVP for Super Bowl 49, but it was a Mississippian who saved the game for the New England Patriots. Vicksburg’s Malcolm Butler intercepted a pass in the last 20 seconds of the game, keeping the Seahawks from what they may have thought would be their win.

The final was 28 to 24.

Butler, who played for Hinds Community College in Mississippi, was one of several Mississippians who had an impact on the game.
