Tom Brady made some wild history with his touchdown in the first quarter of Super Bowl 55

Tom Brady has accomplished so much in his absolutely incredible career as the GOAT, including 10 Super Bowls appearances.  

That is, except one thing. In his first nine appearances in the NFL’s championship game, he has never led his team to a touchdown in the first quarter.

Per CBS Sports, “Brady has only managed to lead his team to a total of three first quarter points in nine career games.”

But that all changed on Sunday in Super Bowl 55, now that he’s with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. With an 8-yard touchdown pass to his former New England Patriots teammate Rob Gronkowski, that streak is over.

The Brady-Gronkowski touchdown connection was their record 13th in Super Bowl history, surpassing the 12 by Joe Montana and Jerry Rice, according to NFL Research.
