It’s Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski’s world.
We just live in it.
There is not much to talk about in this game so I will keep it brief.
Brady and the Patriots came out firing early in this one and by halftime it was already 35-7 in the Patriots favor.
Brady tied a record for touchdown passes in a post-season game with 6.
Tebow and the Broncos looked very sluggish on offense to start. The option play wasn’t looking as good as it did back when Tebow was a Gator.
Brady and the offense poured it on in the first half.
Brady threw for 5 touchdowns, 3 of which were to his top tight-end target, Rob Gronkowski.
Gronkowski has had a stellar year.
In the regular season, Gronkowski set the record for tight ends with 17 receiving touchdowns and also tacked on a rushing touchdown as well.
It is almost too easy when you are 6’6 and 265lbs up against defensive backs maybe half your size.
Brady has been here before and he knows how to win in the playoffs. This is why he gets my notch as the best quarterback ever to lace up. Brady has been to the super bowl 4 times, and won three only to lose his last one in 2007 to my boys in blue, the New York Giants.
Brady looked flat out phenomenal in this game and unless he begins to cool down, I don’t see how anyone can beat the Patriots.
I mean, if Jesus Christ (Tebow) himself can’t be up to the task, who else can?
Congrats to the Niners in their divisional win today as well. It was a well deserved win and they showed some great resilience against Brees and the Saints.
Tomorrow will be some great games as well.
The early game at 1:00 has the Texas squaring off against the Ravens in Baltimore.
Rookie quarterback T.J. Yates will likely have some problems against Baltimore’s smash mouth defense. Quarterback Joe Flacco will have to step up as well if the Raven’s want to win this game. There has been a lot of questions whether or not Flacco has what it takes to win.
He can prove it tomorrow.
At 4:30 the Giants face off against the Packers at Lambeau for a rematch of the 2007 NFC Championship game.
The Giants have ton of momentum and are very dangerous in the playoffs when they are firing on all cylinders.
Their defense will have to step up and stop Aaron Rodgers from walking all over their secondary. It comes down to the defensive line. When they play good, the rest of the defense follows suit.
Expect Eli to show up as usual, and if Brandon Jacobs and Ahmad Bradshaw can run the football like they did last week, the Giants have a good shot to win this game.
