Patriots Vs. Broncos Score Update: Patriots Put Damper On Tebow Time, Take 41-23 Lead

Who says only Tim Tebow is allowed to score in the fourth quarter? Just as the Broncos had finished celebrating their first touchdown since the first quarter, the Patriots grabbed the ball and drove down the field to stick a fork in their vanquished opponents. 

While Rob Gronkowski had been held quiet for much of the game, the young phenom finally picked up his big gain for the night. On 2nd-and-6 from the 24-yard line, Tom Brady found the big man over the middle and he was off to the races, running out right to pick up 38 yards and barrel into Broncos territory. But it didn't take long for Brady to get back to his preferred target for the game, finding Aaron Hernandez twice around an offensive holding call to add another 38, setting up BenJarvus Green-Ellis for a quick run into the end zone.

While that score essentially sealed the game, it would be sad not to mention that on the ensuing drive, facing a 4th-and-17 play, Tim Tebow attempted to pull off what can only be called a "Tecmo Bowl" play, managing to run 28 yards in the wrong direction before being taken down by the New England defense. How many sacks does Rob Ninkovich get for that loss?
