Patriots-Seahawks scoreless in second quarter

'Countdown' Picks Super Bowl Champs


GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Jeremy Lane made a leaping interception in the end zone on a poor throw by Tom Brady and the Seattle Seahawks and New England Patriots were scoreless after one quarter in the Super Bowl on Sunday.

Brady engineered a 58-yard drive that lasted 7:20 before throwing a pick from the 10 on third-and-6. Brady threw off his back foot and took a crunching hit from Michael Bennett and Cliff Avril after he released the ball.

Lane made his first career interception and weaved his way to the 14 before Julian Edelman knocked his own helmet off while making the tackle. Lane went to the locker room after being injured on the return.

The Patriots started with the ball after losing the coin toss and Seattle deferred to the second half. After getting one first down, New England punted. Seattle's first possession ended with a punt after Marshawn Lynch ran three times for 8 yards.

Russell Wilson didn't attempt a pass in the first quarter, while Brady was 9 of 11 for 48 yards.

The teams got down to football under the open retractable roof at University of Phoenix Stadium after dealing with distractions far beyond typical Super Bowl hype over the past two weeks.

The Patriots are being investigated for using under-inflated footballs in their 45-7 win over Indianapolis in the AFC championship game. Meanwhile, star running back Lynch was a daily sideshow for the Seahawks this week because he refused to answer questions from the media.

In the 12th matchup between No. 1 seeds since 1975 and the second in a row, the Seahawks (14-4) are trying to become the first team to win consecutive Super Bowls since the Patriots (14-4) a decade ago. Seattle routed Denver 43-8 last year.

The Patriots have tied Dallas and Pittsburgh for most Super Bowl appearances with eight. They're trying to become the sixth franchise to win at least four. Brady and coach Bill Belichick - the only coach-QB combo to reach six together - led the Patriots to three Super Bowl titles from 2001-04, but lost twice to the New York Giants in 2008 and 2011.

Brady and New England's prolific passing attack are facing a tough challenge against Seattle's "Legion of Boom" secondary. All-Pros Richard Sherman and Earl Thomas were in the starting lineup after both were injured in the NFC championship game against Green Bay. Kam Chancellor, a three-time Pro Bowl safety, also started after hurting his knee in Friday's practice.

Seattle's stingy defense was the first since the 1985-86 Chicago Bears to give up the fewest points per game and fewest yards per game in back-to-back seasons.

After John Legend delivered a stirring rendition of "America The Beautiful," Idina Menzel followed with a rousing performance of the national anthem. A pro-Seahawks crowd booed when Belichick was shown on the video screen during the anthem.

Former Seahawks safety Kenny Easley and former Patriots linebacker Teddy Bruschi served as honorary captains on a perfect day with temperature in the upper 60s after rain fell most of the week.
