Bill Belichick was trolling all of us, while playing this game on Madden Rookie Mode. The Patriots delivered a giant middle finger to Tebow Sportscenters, and now we can put an official end to the Tebow phenomena for 2011. Tom Brady came out and lit up the Broncos with 5 touchdown passes in the first half, three going to Rob Gronkowski. He finished with 6 touchdown passes, tying a postseason record for most touchdown passes in a game (Steve Young and Daryle Lamonica). At one point, Brady had those 6 touchdowns while Tim Tebow had completed only 3 passes. Oh, and the leading rusher for New England was tight end Aaron Hernandez. Like I said, the Hoodie is the master troll.
Brady stayed in the game despite the score getting to 45-10, and on the final possession, Brady was throwing from his end zone, and then quick kicking on third down with a final exclamation point for a 48 yard punt.
The final numbers: Tom Brady, 26 of 34, 363 yards, 6 touchdowns, 1 interception, 0 sacks
Tim Tebow, 9 of 26 for 136 yards (kind of like 316), 0 touchdowns, 0 interceptions, 5 sacks, 1 fumble lost
