Tom Brady, not wanting to lose his third NFL Super Bowl in a row (Previous 2 were lost to the New York Giants) was a man on a mission. He quickly marched the Patriots down the field to score a touchdown with a TD (touchdown) pass to Danny Amendola. Then after the Seattle Seahawks couldn’t do anything in their possession following Brady’s touchdown, it was time to put the ball back into Tom Brady’s hands once more. Brady then marched the New England Patriots down the field and scored another touchdown with a Brady TD pass to Julian Edelman.
The score was now New England Patriots 28 and the Seattle Seahawks 24.

After taking a time-out, the Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson handed the ball off to Marshawn Lynch who gained 4 yards getting them down to the 1 yard line. On the next play, history was made.
