The New England Patriots seem to be in the driver's seat of this one, as Danny Woodhead capped off a long drive with a 10-yard touchdown run to put them up by 18 big points.
Already the Patriots seem to be focusing on running out as much clock as possible. Focusing on BenJarvus Green-Ellis both with a short pass and handoffs, the Patriots' offense covered 35 quick yards to get out to midfield. With the run established, Brady returned to the air for a couple quick passes which, combined with a facemask, brought them all the way to the Denver 14-yard line. From there, a quick Rob Gronkowski target brought them within 10 yards, and Danny Woodhead brought them all the way home, with a nasty cut keeping the Bronco's defense off his back and allowing him to run untouched into the end zone.
With the fourth quarter drawing near, the Patriots are up 34-16--hopefully the sort of lead which Tim Tebow won't be able to melt away with his characteristic late-game "miracles".
