Browner thought they'd run it: 'Fortunately, they didn't'

On the game-deciding play of the New England Patriots' Super Bowl victory last Sunday, no one thought the Seattle Seahawks would pass the ball on the 1-yard-line. However, their personnel dictated the New England Patriots' defensive package.

Count Patriots cornerback Brandon Browner, who helped in Malcolm Butler's interception effort, as yet another skeptic of Seahawks coach Pete Carroll's horrendous play-call.

"I thought like everybody else that they would run it, but their personnel was set up for pass, so we had three cornerbacks on the field," Browner told The Dan Patrick Show Thursday, via CSNNE. "...On the 1-yard line, you'd think they'd turn around and hand the ball to best running back in the game [Marshawn Lynch] but fortunately, they didn't."
