Rob Gronkowski and Tom Brady have been the two dominant forces of this game for the New England Patriots, and it showed even more on their last drive. Gronk and Brady hooked up for nine yards on second down to get into plus territory early on, and that got the Patriots rolling.

First down pass plays to Deion Branch and Aaron Hernandez soon followed, moving the Pats inside the 20. Stevan Ridley was the running back in the first part of the drive, getting two carries for minimal yardage, then New England abandoned the run entirely and decided to pass on every single down, and it worked out for them.
Brady and Gronkowski connected for a 12-yard touchdown to cap off the drive, Gronk's second and Brady's third of the first half alone, putting the Patriots up two touchdowns again, and putting the pressure squarely back on Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos.
