Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow may be able to turn water into Gatorade but he was unable to shepherd his team to a winning victory against Tom Brady and the elite New England Patriots.
In the most highly-anticipated NFL play-off game in history, the Broncos lost to the Patriots 10-to-44. The game was essentially over by the end of the second quarter.
The Patriots will host either the Baltimore Ravens or Houston Texans next Sunday afternoon.
After captivating the nation with his stellar performance in last week’s wild-card win against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow just wasn’t present tonight, completing only nine of 26 passes for 136 yards. At times, Tebow looked lost against the mighty Tom Brady.
Tom Brady dealt with Tebowmania by simply squashing it. He was, in a word, perfect. Brady threw six touchdowns passes, five in the first half — an NFL record and put the Patriots into the AFC championship game.
I think we can finally put the national nightmare of Tebowmania to rest, where it belongs.
