The 49th edition of the Super Bowl featuring the New England Patriots and the Seattle Seahawks is off and running and in case you missed the first half, here are the six must-see plays.

Brady throws an interception

With less than two minutes left in the first quarter, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady threw an interception caught by the Seahawks' Jeremy Lane at the five-yard line, just outside of Seattle's end zone. Lane returned the ball for 14 yards.

This was the only scoring threat of the first quarter.

Lane suffered an injury to his arm on the play and left the field for treatment.

Patriots score first

The Patriots got on the board first with an 11-yard touchdown pass from Brady to Brandon LaFell with just under 10 minutes left in the second quarter.

They got the extra point and went up 7-0.

Seahawks' Wilson gets sacked

The Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson was sacked with just under 10 minutes left in the second quarter on a first-down play by the Patriots' Chandler Jones, who found a hole in the Seahawks defence and made full use of the opportunity.

Beast mode ties things up

Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch, known as "beast mode," ran in an three-yard touchdown on a third-down play to even things up with just over two minutes left in the half. Lynch ran hard, getting through three of the Patriots' defensive players before spinning in, over the line for the score.

The Seahawks added the extra point to make the score 7-7.

Gronk responds with another Patriots touchdown

The Patriots' Brady threw a 22-yard pass down the right side of the field to Rob Gronkowski who held on to give back New England the lead.

New England kicked the extra point to go up by seven.

Matthews grabs pass for the touchdown

It only took Russell Wilson 1.79 seconds to take the snap and get an 11-yard pass off to Chris Matthews, who caught the ball as he leapt into the air, coming down for the touchdown with only two seconds left on the clock.

Seattle got the extra point and evened the score at 14 a piece going in to half time.
