    FOXBOROUGH, Mass. Cheap Hockey Lightning Jerseys . -- This time, Seattle won it at the goal line.It certainly wont make up for the Super Bowl loss two seasons back, but the Seahawks goal-line stand lifted them to a 31-24 victory over the New England Patriots on Sunday night.Tom Brady couldnt connect with Rob Gronkowski on a fade pattern on fourth down as New England (7-2) failed four times from inside the 2 in the dying moments.He was playing off me ... pretty far, farther than usual, Gronkowski said about safety Kam Chancellor. You dont usually see that. A fade, I had to go up to him and initiate a move. I just wanted get on top of his toes, that is what you are taught. I just got up on his toes too much.It was reminiscent of how the Seahawks (6-2-1) lost the 2015 Super Bowl when Malcolm Butler intercepted at the goal line to win the NFL title for the Patriots.When it got down to it, when you get a chance to win a game on the 1-yard line , there aint nothing like it in football, said coach Pete Carroll, whose Seahawks worked on defending that exact play at the end of Fridays practice. Its one of the great challenges that a team and a defense gets. And our guys just came through, and hung in there, and just fought for every inch and let us walk away with the win.Doug Baldwin caught three touchdown passes from Russell Wilson, including a 15-yarder for the final margin. Strangely, Seattle went for 2 points and failed on the conversion, leaving the Patriots a chance to tie with a touchdown and an extra point kick.`We wanted to make it a two-possession game, Carroll said.But LeGarrette Blount, who earlier rushed for three touchdowns and has 12 this season, couldnt get into the end zone from close range, nor could Brady on a pair of sneaks.Our execution wasnt great, Brady said, and they put a lot of pressure on you defensively. They have a lot of good players and they make you earn every yard. They play to the end, they have been in a lot of close games.It came down to a yard at the end and we didnt get it.Wilson finished 25 for 37 for 348 yards and the three scores to Baldwin. Brady was 23 of 32 for 316 yards but no TDs after throwing for 12 in his first four games since returning from suspension.New Englands Martellus Bennett had seven receptions for 102 yards to lead all receivers.A GAME OF SWINGSIt was a fierce, sometimes viciously physical game. Gronkowski took one particularly hard hit from Seahawks standout safety Earl Thomas and temporarily had to leave the game in the first half.It also was a game of big plays and big swings, perhaps none more so than Julian Edelmans spectacular over-the-shoulder 33-yard catch on a third-and 25 to end the third quarter. That set up Stephen Gostkowskis 30-yard field goal for a 24-22 lead.Or maybe it was rookie C.J. Prosises 38-yard catch between two defenders to the New England 2, leading to Hauschkas fourth field goal after a strong goal-line stand by the Patriots.Or any of Baldwins three TD receptions.Or, in the end, the power of Seattles interior defense on the short runs by Blount or Brady, and Kam Chancellors tight coverage on Gronkowski on the final play.BLOUNT INSTRUMENTBlount scored twice on 1-yard rushes, bulling his way into the end zone on the second score. He also scooted left for a 13-yard TD in the third period for a 21-19 lead.PICK-FREE NO MOREBradys interception in the second quarter derailed the Patriots chance to tie the 1960 Cleveland Browns for an NFL-record nine games without an interception. DeShawn Shead made the pick.New England had thrown 258 passes before being intercepted.DONT DEFERSomeday perhaps teams will learn not to defer when winning the opening coin toss against New England. The Patriots drove relentlessly for 75 yards and their opening touchdown after the Seahawks did precisely that.New England has scored touchdowns on five of its opening nine drives this season, three of those with Brady at quarterback.Oh yeah, Seattle went three-and-out with the second-half kickoff.UP NEXT:Seattle: The Seahawks host the Eagles.New England: The Patriots also play on the West Coast next Sunday, at San Francisco.---For more NFL coverage: and Braydon Coburn Jersey . -- Stanford squashed Oregons national championship hopes again, schooling the Ducks in power football. Tyler Johnson Jersey . The 17-year-old native of Marystown, N.L., pulled out of Skate Canada International last month in Saint John, N.B., with the same problem. . The Canadian squad, skipped by Jennifer Jones of Winnipeg, got on the board first with two in the second end, and followed that with two more apiece in the fourth and sixth ends. Melbourne Victory re-signing Marco Rojas has no regrets about his failed German sojourn and believes he returns to the A-League a better player.Rojas signed a two-year contract with Victory on Thursday, linking up with the same club who helped him attract global attention.He scored 15 goals and won the Johnny Warren Medal as A-League player of the year in 2012-13, which led to a four-year deal with German outfit Vfb Stuttgart.But the 24-year-old struggled to get on the park for Stuttgart and the two parties mutually agreed earlier this week to terminate his contract.Ive got no regrets. It didnt go perfectly but I learnt a lot, Rojas said in Melbourne.Ive been away three years and I would be disappointed if I was exactly the same player as I was when I left.Ive learnt a few different tricks and gained some experience from playing and training with the international players.Rojas admitted football had become somewhat of a drag in his final months with Stuttgart.The New Zealand international was also desperate to rediscover his mojo before the 2017 Confederations Cup.I needed to find something new. I spoke to VfB and they felt the same way, he said.It wasnt the best situation and I kind of realised I was a bit surplus to the club and, when that happens, its not a good place to be. Dan Girardi Jersey. Im still wanting to get better as a footballer, I need to learn and I didnt think it would be the place to do that.It was pretty much why I decided it was time to come back.The Hamilton-born winger started his A-League career with Wellington, the Phoenix being one of many clubs who had been interested in recruiting him.There would always be a consideration (for Wellington) because New Zealand is where I was born, he said.But Melbourne was where I thought would be best for me.Weve always kept in touch with Melbourne and I had a good time here, its familiar to me and maybe that will help me get back to (top form).Rojas still harbours ambitions of playing in Europes top leagues but is happy to put them on ice for two seasons.I want to play as high up as I can ... (but) I need to do my talking on the pitch, he said.I need to prove that I can do what I did when I was here in the A-League.Once I do that, I can think about all the other stuff.
