When your opponent trash-talks you the entire week leading up to the Super Bowl, it must be tough to shake his hand and say “Good game” after you win.

That’s exactly what quarterback Tom Brady had to do after his New England Patriots defeated the Seattle Seahawks 28-24 on Sunday night and were crowned Super Bowl XLIX champions. However, USA Today caught that tough moment in Glendale, Ariz., first.

Yup, that’s always-vocal Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman going for the handshake on the final play of the game — a kneel-down — while Brady looks right past him.

Seattle fans can rest easy, though, knowing their favorite son didn’t end up being snubbed by the Super Bowl XLIX MVP. While that photo is awesome, it’s simply impeccable timing. Brady got up and gave Sherman proper recognition after a hard-fought game.
