The New England Patriots struck first Sunday night in Super Bowl XLIX with an early second-quarter touchdown.
Patriots quarterback Tom Brady fired a pass to wide receiver Brandon LaFell on a well-executed slant route from 11 yards out for a 7-0 lead.
Two Seahawks players collided and appeared to clash helmets at the end of the play, which might be problematic for Seattle because cornerback Jeremy Lane is doubtful to return following an injury suffered in the first quarter.
