Broncos Vs. Patriots Score Update: Tom Brady Throws Sixth Touchdown Pass, New England Ahead 42-7

Again starting in fantastic field position, Tom Brady and the New England Patriots tried to extend their already laughable lead with just more than 13 minutes left in the third quarter. They did just that, again, with relative ease, after a four-play, 44-yard drive culminated in Brady hitting Aaron Hernandez over the middle for a high-steppin' 17-yard touchdown to make it 42-7.

The drive started out with a Danny Woodhead five-yard run before Brady again took to the air, completing a 17-yard pass over the middle to Wes Welker to get down to the Broncos' 17-yard line. Brady has been seeing almost no pressure all game despite the dynamic pass-rushing duo of Von Miller and Elvis Dumervil lining up across from him.

Shortly afterward, Brady hit Hernandez for his sixth touchdown, and Hernandez's first. It was the fourth different receiver Brady has connected with for a touchdown.
