Freeze Frame Before Russell Wilson Interception Shows Separation Malcolm Butler Closed

Early frame of Butler int - Super Bowl

Russell Wilson made a bad decision on this interception — and his coaches, who have fallen on the sword, made a bad decision on the call — but in this freeze frame you can see Ricardo Lockette making his break. Malcolm Butler made a hell of a play to beat Lockette to the spot and wrest the ball away from him — this pick only gets made if Butler reads the exact play that’s coming and closes fast. There will be a lot of blame that goes around for Seattle’s call and execution, but Butler also deserves immense credit for making it happen.
