Ochocinco’s big catch leads to Patriots TD, 17-9 lead

INDIANAPOLIS — And we have our first Chad Ochocinco sighting in Super Bowl XLVI.

On the first play after halftime, Tom Brady dropped back, went through his progressions and fired a dart down the left sideline to Ochocinco.

The catch — a 21-yarder to move New England to its 42– was Ochocinco’s first of the postseason (not to mention his first in a Super Bowl). The Patriots then proceeded to run right past the Giants, scoring a touchdown to push their lead to 17-9 on an Aaron Hernandez 12-yard catch.

Ochocinco, America’s favorite tweeting receiver, played only one snap in the Patriots’ divisional-round win over the Broncos and was inactive for the AFC Championship Game. But it’s nice to see Ochocinco finally contributing in a meaningful way for the Patriots.
