Though it came later than most fans would have liked, the Patriots finally scored their first touchdown of the 2022 season.

Trailing 17-0 with 4:44 remaining in the third quarter of Sunday’s matchup with the Dolphins, Mac Jones connected for a six-yard score with a wide open Ty Montgomery, who rolled into the end zone after falling on the one-yard line.

The touchdown capped off New England’s best drive of the day, a 15-play, 92 yard sequence that took over eight minutes and cut the score to 17-7.

Montgomery is making his Patriots debut after originally being listed as questionable with a knee injury.
