Patriots’ Tom Brady shines amid the Tim Tebow madness
DENVER — Sports Authority Field at Mile High on Sunday was the site of the latest segment of Tebow mania, with all things Tim Tebow in the spotlight. But the quarterback on the other side proved yet again he’s a force and a guy who can change the complexion of games.
This was Tom Brady’s afternoon in the New England Patriots‘ 41-23 dismantling of the Denver Broncos that clinched the AFC East. He was 23-for-34 for 320 yards and two touchdowns in the air, added another on the ground and took advantage of three Denver turnovers.
Just like the Broncos knew he would.
“He’s still the best out there in my opinion. When you make mistakes against a guy like that, he’s going to make you pay. That’s pretty much what happened all day,” cornerback Champ Bailey said. “That’s what you expect from him, and that’s what he’s been doing for years.”
“Once we got some turnovers from our defense, that really sparked us,” Brady said.
But Brady was the one who poured it on, finding Aaron Hernandez nine times for 129 yards and big tight end Rob Gronkowski over the middle in between coverage.
“They have two very good pass-rushers on the outside. They’re good with schemes,” Brady said. “I just tried to find good matchups and throw the ball there.”
