Broncos Vs. Patriots Score Update: New England Routing Denver At Halftime, 35-7

The Denver Broncos are currently being dominated by Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. The Patriots started early jumping out to a 14-0 lead thanks to Brady touchdown passes to wide receiver Wes Welker and to tight end Rob Gronkowksi. On the Patriots next drive however, Brady was picked off by the Broncos on an errant pass, setting the Broncos up in scoring position. Willis McGahee was able to power the football forward for five yards and a touchdown to put the game within a touchdown.

Unfortunately for the Broncos however, Tom Brady went in a zone after the interceptions and the Patriots offense exploded in the second quarter. Brady threw three more touchdown passes, two more to Gronkowski, and a 61-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Deion Branch. The Broncos offense on the other hand has struggled to get anything going trying to run the football. At halftime, Tim Tebow has less completed passes than Tom Brady has touchdown passes. Tebow is just three of 10 passing for 28 yards and 13 rushing yards on five carries.

Brady on the other hand has 246 yards passing with five touchdown passes and one interception. Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez are killing the Broncos defense, as Hernandez has just two catches for 29 yards but he's added 58 rushing yards on three carries, including a 43-yard run on the first drive of the game. Gronkowski on the other hand has eight catches for 97 yards and three touchdowns. If the Broncos want a chance at all to get back in the game, they'll need to stop the Patriots tight ends.

Also, they might not want to let the blob get ahold of Tebow again.
