Game of Inches


Watch how close Lynch almost ran this one in with one minute to go. Number 54 55, Hightower Ayers fights off a block, and grabs Lynch running at full speed. He grabs Lynch (Beast Mode) by himself, from behind and drags him down mere inches from the goal line. He also hammers away at the ball so Lynch can’t reach forward and “break the plane” to score. Branch and Jones help out by forcing Lynch to make a tiny side step but it is a huge effort by Hightower that saves the game.

Unbelievable and every bit as incredible as the final INT.

Also of note is how the classy Seahawks dive at the knees of multiple Patriots on this (and many other) plays.

Hightower Saves the game
