Patriots Vs. Broncos Score Update: Tom Brady, New England Take 7-0 Lead Two Minutes In

The playoffs are underway for the New England Patriots, and there's no starting slow this time against Tim Tebow and the Broncos. Just two minutes into the game, and Tom Brady and the Patriots already have an 80-yard touchdown drive under their belts.

Starting from the 20 after Danny Woodhead took a knee on the opening kickoff, BenJarvus Green-Ellis got the first two looks from New England, first on an 8-yard dump off from Tom Brady, and then on a 5-yard run up the middle for the first. One play later, and they had another fresh set of downs when Brady found Rob Gronkowski on the right side for 15.

The next play was the big one, courtesy of the other tight end, Aaron Hernandez. Lining up behind Brady, Hernandez took a shaky handoff, and found the right sideline, racing all the way to the 5-yard line before the Broncos could take him down. On the very next snap, Tom Brady found an open Wes Welker crossing the middle of the field for the touchdown.

Tim Tebow will get the ball for the first time now, facing a 7-0 deficit.
