Super Bowl 52 Patriots vs Eagles: James White scores New England's first touchdown of the day

The Patriots have drawn within three.

The New England Patriots are down in the first half of Super Bowl 52 against the Philadelphia Eagles. However, after falling behind 15-3, the team scored nine unanswered points: First Stephen Gostkowski kicked a 45-yard field goal, then – following a Duron Harmon interception – the Patriots drove 90 yards in seven plays kept by a James White touchdown run:

Just like last year, White is playing a big role on the biggest stage – which is especially important with Brandin Cooks out for the game due to a head injury.

Unfortunately for New England, the team missed the ensuing extra point attempt and now finds itself down three points heading into the two-minute warning.
