New England Patriots quarterback and Super Bowl MVP Tom Brady says he had “a little bit of doubt” after a juggling catch by the Seattle Seahawks in the final minutes of the game.

“I saw the review and couldn’t believe it,” he told reporters on Monday in Glendale, Arizona. “I felt like we were going to win the whole game, and then they made that catch and then I had a little bit of doubt. And then we made a great play.”

The improbable catch by Seattle receiver Jermaine Kearse put the Seahawks on the 5-yard line with a minute to go. Only an interception two plays later — on a questionable pass call — saved the game for New England.

At a post-Super Bowl news conference, Brady and Patriots coach Bill Belichick both sidestepped questions about Deflate-Gate, the NFL’s investigation into whether the Patriots let air out of footballs to gain an edge in the AFC championship game.

“I don’t have any other comment on that,” Belichick said. “I’ve twice gone into great detail about everything I knew. I’ve tried to be totally transparent and given everybody as much info as I have. That’s all I have to give.”
