The Patriots Scored In The 1st Quarter For The 1st Time With Tom Brady

Tom Brady

This is a crazy stat.

Before today, the New England Patriots had played in seven Super Bowls in the Tom Brady-Bill Belichick era.

They won five of those games. They lost two.

One thing they hadn't done: score points in the first quarter. Seriously.

That all changed tonight. After falling behind 3-0, the Patriots and Brady got the ball on their first drive and marched downfield.

While the drive stalled in the red zone, the Pats tied the score on a short field goal by Stephen Gostkowski.

Amazingly, Gostkowski's kick broke New England's first quarter futility.

The Pats have bigger problems on their hands right now. The Eagles drove right back down the field and scored a touchdown to make it 9-3.

They missed the PAT, so we'll see if that point ends up costing them down the line.
