It was perhaps one of the most memorable of last weekend’s Super Bowl matches between the New England Patriots and the Seattle Seahawks: The Seahawks’ Russell Wilson danced out of bounds, leaving the game in his owner’s hands after he had scored.

On Sunday, the Seahawks’ new-born superstar, 22, was back on the court in her second consecutive match after leaving the first game early with a bruised shoulder.

As Tom Brady and his new-found star partner stepped out onto the court to start the third game of the championship quarterfinal, they were met with a chorus of boos from the Denver crowd.

One could be forgiven for asking how many times the media would compare the two players together since they last shared a court on the same day nearly three years ago. Yet it has only been a few days, and it was a memorable one.

And it was a wonderful reminder of the importance of Sunday’s game. The Patriots will play the Seattle Seahawks in the Super Bowl for the second straight season and the first time in three. The teams are now tied for the second-longest championship drought in NFL history.

The Seahawks lost to the Colts in Super Bowl XLIX, 24-21. The Patriots will now face the second-longest team in postseason history to break the Super Bowl drought.

In addition to Brady, Wilson, who made a few highlight-of-all-time plays and had a few near-misses, and running back Marshawn Lynch, the Seahawks were led by coach Pete Carroll.

Brady, a two-time Super Bowl champion, and Wilson became the first non-quarterbacks to win the Vince Lombardi Trophy since 1980. It was Brady’s fourth Super Bowl victory, winning two with the New England Patriots and capturing his first as a starter at New England.

The Seahawks went into the game with a better record than the Patriots, but New England was just off the pace. Seattle, however, was running away from Denver at the time and looked poised to run away with the championship, which the Patriots had won
