Broncos Vs. Patriots Final Score: New England Beats Down Tim Tebow And The Broncos, 45-10

The New England Patriots dominated the Denver Broncos in the 2012 AFC Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs. The Patriots jumped out to an early 14-0 lead, but the Broncos were able to force a turnover and look like they'd make it a game by cutting the lead to 14-7, but Tom Brady wasn't going to let that happen. In the second quarter, New England scored 21 unanswered points in the form of three Tom Brady touchdown passes.

The Patriots didn't let up after halftime either, scoring another touchdown on another Tom Brady touchdown pass. The Broncos were able to score a field goal however in the third quarter, to make the score not look as bad... The Patriots still kept the pedal on a bit in the fourth quarter with Tom Brady hitting a deep pass to Rob Gronkowski to put the Patriots inside the five yard line. The Patriots ran the ball three straight times however and just kicked a field goal.

Tim Tebow had a woeful day, taking until the fourth quarter to complete as many passes as Tom Brady had thrown touchdowns. Tebow ended the day completing just nine passes for 136 yards. Tom Brady on the other hand carved up the Broncos throwing for 363 yards and six touchdowns, setting a Patriots playoff record for passing yards in a single playoff game. Tight end Rob Gronkowski caught three touchdowns in the game. The Patriots coasted through most of the third quarter, even allowing Brady to punt on third down. Brady's 48-yard pooch punt wound up being the longest punt in the game. The Patriots advance to the AFC Championship Game to take on the winner of the Houston Texans Vs. Baltimore Ravens on Sunday.
