Tom Brady has his first touchdown pass in the first quarter in his 10 career Super Bowls.
Brady hooked up with former Patriots teammate Rob Gronkowski for an 8-yard touchdown to put Tampa Bay up 7-3 over the Kansas City Chiefs with 37 seconds left in the first quarter.
It was the 13th time Brady and Gronk have hooked up for a postseason touchdown. That breaks the record they previously shared with Jerry Rice and Joe Montana.
Brady’s nine Super Bowl teams in New England produced just three points total in the first quarter. That came on a field goal in the Patriots’ 41-33 loss to the Eagles in Super Bowl 52.
The Buccaneers punted on their first two possessions on Sunday before Brady engineered an eight-play, 75-yard drive.
