ORIGINAL POST: The biggest threat to Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos tomorrow night isn’t the Patriots defence.
It’s the Pats offence, and more specifically tight ends Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez.
The Broncos defence has gotten a lot of accolades for its turnaround in the second-half of the season.
But its one huge flaw, as measured by the stat-heads at Football Outsiders, is its pass defence on medium- and long-range throws over the middle.
And what’s the big strength of the Pats offence?
Gronk (17 TDs), and his trusty tight-end sidekick Hernandez catching balls in the middle of the field.
Basically, Tebow will be undone by the anti-Tebow tomorrow.
Either that, or the power of Tebow will overcome Denver’s flaws (and Gronk’s dominance) and keep the impossible run going.
UPDATE 9:52 p.m.:
Gronk’s first-half line: 8 catches, 97 yards, 3 TDs
New England is driving a stake through the heart of Tim Tebow, 35-7.
UPDATE 11:56 p.m.:
Gronk’s final line: 10 catches, 145, 3 TDs
