Brady’s Patriots Dominate Tebow’s Broncos 45-10 In AFC Playoff Rout

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Tom Brady’s way of dealing with Tebowmania was to silence it with a record-shattering performance.

Brady threw six touchdowns passes, five in the first half, and put the New England Patriots into the AFC championship game after roughing up Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos 45-10 Saturday night.

The Patriots (14-3), winners of nine straight games, will host either Baltimore or Houston next Sunday for a spot in the Super Bowl. Saturday night’s romp snapped a three-game postseason losing streak, two of those at Gillette Stadium, and lifted the Patriots to the verge of their fifth Super Bowl appearance in 11 seasons. They’ve won it three times.

Brady even punted with 2:56 remaining, 48 yards on third down.

And so ended one of the season’s most exciting story lines — one that caught the nation’s attention and began when Denver was 1-4 and made Tebow a starter. The one-time third-stringer promptly won six in a row and seven of eight, with a string of stunning comebacks, and the Broncos ended up backing into the AFC West title.

    Thank you Brady, for finally ending that Tebow nonsense once and for all. Now all the delusional Tebow fanboys can go back to not caring about football.


    Once I caught a glimpse of the score, that was enough for me. . . .
    Didn’t watch a single down. Much happier.

    Wow, what a surprise, the Patriots won a playoff game.
    Shaping up to be the worst playoff profile in a few years.

    Gronkowski is great!

    Brady is unreal!

    Tebow is an over-rated player and his true abilities showed up when put against a good team. Let the nation see that he is not this magnificant, religious based player….he is an “avergae-joe” who came to play….and could not take the heat! So glas this Tebow-hype is over! Let him go back and practice how to throw a spiral!

    It will be a Patriots-Giants rematch and this time it will be in Indy on February 5th.
    Also I like to send My Prayers and Thoughts to Dan Rakow’s 96 Years Young Grandmother Helen Moore who Passed Away Peacefully Friday Evening 1/13.
