VIDEO: Tom Brady Called For Intentional Grounding In End Zone, Giants Get Safety


The New England Patriots' defense got the first stop of the 2012 Super Bowl. But the New York Giants' pass rush got the first points, with Justin Tuck forcing a deep throw by Tom Brady to no one that was flagged for intentional grounding. And, because Brady was in the end zone, that penalty cost the Patriots two points, with the Giants being awarded a safety and a 2-0 lead in the first quarter of Super Bowl XLVI.

Clearly, that's not the way that Brady wanted the Patriots to begin Super Bowl XLVI. It's also the first safety in a Super Bowl since Super Bowl XXV.
