Who scored first in the Super Bowl? Watch Devonta Freeman open scoring with TD run

Monday February 6th, 2017

Falcons tailback Devonta Freeman delivered the first score of Super Bowl LI.

A long Falcons drive was capped by Freeman’s short plunge early in the second quarter, as he cut outside and went unbothered into the end zone for six.

Atlanta took a 7–0 lead, leaning on a strong defensive effort to open the game.
