HALFTIME: Eagles lead Patriots 22-12 at half, Foles catches TD pass

Posted: Updated:

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Latest from the Super Bowl (all times local):
    
6:35 p.m.
    
Turns out Tom Brady's not quite as good on the other end of a pass, and Philadelphia's lead is growing.
    
Brady botched an attempted over-the-shoulder catch on a throw from receiver Danny Amendola on a trick play. The Patriots went for it on fourth-and-5 after that play, and Brady's throw to Rob Gronkowski was knocked away by Philadelphia's Jalen Mills.
    
Six plays later, LeGarrette Blount scored on a 21-yard run. The 2-point conversion pass attempt by Nick Foles fell incomplete, leaving the Eagles' lead at 15-3.
    
Earlier in New England's drive, Brandin Cooks stayed motionless on the field for about a minute after a hard blindside hit to the head from Malcolm Jenkins at the end of a 23-yard catch. It was announced that Cooks wouldn't return.

6:08 p.m.
    
Nick Foles isn't having any trouble moving the Philadelphia offense against the defending champion New England Patriots.
    
                Foles threw a 34-yard touchdown pass to a leaping Alshon Jeffery in the back of the end zone to give the Eagles a 9-3 lead in the first quarter.              
    
Jake Elliott missed his fifth PAT kick of the season, going wide right.
    
Foles was 8 of 11 for 102 yards on the first two Philadelphia possessions.
    
The Patriots matched the Eagles' field goal on the opening drive. It was the first time in eight Super Bowls with Tom Brady and Bill Belichick that New England scored in the first quarter.
    
___
    
6 p.m.
    
Tom Brady and the New England Patriots have finally scored points in the first quarter of a Super Bowl.
    
The Patriots answered an opening field goal by the Philadelphia Eagles with Stephen Gostkowski's 26-yarder for a 3-3 tie on New England's first possession.
    
It's the first time in eight Super Bowl appearances that the Patriots have scored in the first quarter with Brady and coach Bill Belichick. The key plays were Brady's completions of 28 yards to Chris Hogan and 15 yards to running back James White.
    
Both teams drove 67 yards to their first points.
