WATCH: After 53 minutes, the Patriots score the first TD of Super Bowl LIII
It took 53 game minutes, but it finally happened.
New England was the first to reach the end zone in Super Bowl LIII, scoring on a two-yard run from Sony Michel with 7:00 left in the fourth quarter. The touchdown was the first for either team and gave the Patriots a 10-3 lead over the Rams.
The score was set up by a 29-yard pass from Tom Brady to Rob Gronkowski.

Super Bowl LIII was expected to be a game filled with offense. Instead, points have been incredibly difficult to come by.
While Michel was the one who crossed the goal line, Brady went 4-of-4 on the drive, helping lead the Patriots to the end zone.
