Broncos Vs. Patriots, 2012 NFL Playoffs: Tim Tebow, Denver Look For Different Results In Round 2 Against New England

The Denver Broncos face the New England Patriots for a second time this NFL season and the stakes are even higher than the first. While the Broncos were still able to back its way into the playoffs after two more losses, there is no safety net: lose and the Broncos go home until training camp. Even after last week's ending against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Denver is once again considered the underdog, as seen in CBS' panel taking the Patriots, 5-0.

Pete Prisco is one of the selectors and he broke down why he went with the Patriots. Prisco repeats his same line from the earlier game: once Tom Brady opens up a lead against the Patriots, the Broncos won't be able to overcome it. Maybe that turns out to be true, but Tebow was able to throw for 316 yards against the Steelers' No. 1 pass defense. The Broncos should be able to stay in the game as long as Tim Tebow stays on the trajectory he had last week against Pittsburgh. Will there be a road upset in the making?
