The Denver Broncos are coming off a thrilling overtime victory against the Pittsburgh Steelers in overtime on an 80-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Tim Tebow to wide receiver Demaryius Thomas. "We were just waiting for him to come out and play the way we knew he could and show everybody," receiver Eddie Royal said. The Broncos will hit the road this week however and head to Gillette Stadium to try and win on the road. In the first meeting between the teams in the regular season, the Patriots walked out of Denver with a 41-23 win.
The Patriots on the other hand are trying to win their first playoff game since the 2007 NFL playoffs. The Patriots are prepared to take on the Broncos offense and defense though, having already beat them this season. Former Broncos head coach Josh McDaniels is now on the Patriots staff as well, so he should know a bit about Tebow. "He's ready to help us in any way that he can. I'm sure that he'll be an asset to our coaching staff and our team," Belichick said. "I'm not sure exactly how that will pan out." In the last meeting, quarterback Tom Brady threw for 320 yards in the air with two touchdowns.
