TOM BRADY LEADS THE PATS TO THE AFC FINAL IN THE MIDDLE OF A RUN OF NINE WINS IN A ROW
Wed, 18 Jan 2012 10:10 AM EST

These aren’t the same 2009-10 New England Patriots.

These New England Patriots did not go one-and-done. They overwhelm the parable of Tim Tebow with a convincing 45-10 superiority over the Denver Broncos. Baseball odds

These Patriots have a killer instinct in the postseason. These Patriots aren’t playing around.

Want explanation?

New England controlled by as many as 35 points in the 2nd half, and stating quarterback Tom Brady played each snap. He threw for 363 yards and tied an NFL playoff history with 6 touchdown passes. Baseball spreads

These Patriots are frightening. They saved their most complete game of the season – on each side of the football – for the playoffs.

These Patriots are deadly. They won an NFL-high ninth game in a row.

These Patriots even brought one or two smiles to coach Bill Belichick’s face after the game. Everyone knows that is no tiny achievement.

“I’m truly contented for the players; I’m actually thrilled for them,” Belichick said. “They worked tough, and they tolerate me. So they merit this.”

These Patriots have tight end Rob Gronkowskind, and Aaron Hernandez. There isn’t any better limited end pair in the NFL.

Gronk tied an NFL record with three first-half touchdowns. He accomplished with 10 receptions and 145 yards. The 22-year-old could be on his way to a Hall of fame career.

Hernandez caught 4 passes for fifty five yards. To everyone’s surprise, he also is a really good running back. Belichick had 2 weeks to get ready for Denver and added extra wrinkle by giving Hernandez five carries for 61 yards. New England’s versatile backup tight end, who played some running back in high school, led the team in rushing.

“Everyone makes performs on this team, and that is the reason why our offense is so threatening,” Hernandez claimed. “It is hard -for the defense- mainly because they don’t know who to cover.”

Their Pro Bowl guard Brian Waters played most of his career with a different great tight end in Kansas City: Tony Gonzalez. But Waters recounted he’s never had two tight ends on the same team who were this accomplished.

“I mean, what do you do?” Waters asked. “The simple fact is that Gronk is able to block as well as he does and the indisputable fact that he can be a mismatch trouble anywhere on the soccer field is an excellent thing. But his capability to block permits us the power to do some things with Aaron that a lot of teams can’t do.”

They don’t have a great defense. But that’s fine. At minimum it played lights-out for one postseason game.

They kept the Broncos to 252 total yards and caused Tebow look like a Division II quarterback. He was baffled and battered. He was 9-for-26 for 136 yards and a fumble. He also was sacked 5 times.

Can these Patriots keep up this degree of defense the whole playoffs? Who knows? But the defense looked great for one night.

“Really, this was our 1st four-quarter game,” Patriots linebacker Rob Ninkovich (1.5 sacks) related of the defense. “This is a one-game season at present. So coming into this game, we knew the loser is going home and they’re not playing once more. So we put in a lot of work.”It’s ample about the defense. New England’s offense is averaging 40.5 points in its past 4 games. These Patriots are very tough to defeat with that kind of creation. On Saturday, these Patriots had 42 points with 11:53 left in the third quarter. How scary is that?

Most importantly, these Patriots have Brady. He looks as sharp and centered as always. Brady, 34, knows his title window won’t remain open forever and ever. He sliced the Broncos with precision and finished 36 of 34 passes.

These Patriots have an opportunity as long as Brady is at the very top of his game. With Drew Brees eliminated Saturday, Aaron Rodgers is the only playoff quarterback remaining on Brady’s point. But Brady won’t get to find out Rodgers unless they meet in Indianapolis.

Speaking of the Super Bowl, these Patriots include a powerful impression of pressure to get there. In great part, it arrives from Brady, who is looking beyond Saturday’s record-setting representation.

“I think that we have 8 days till the biggest game of the year,” Brady declared. “From this point on, everybody will be focused on what we need to do to be far better the week after next and hopefully come out and play for another championship.”
