NFL Playoffs, Patriots Vs. Broncos - Open Thread

Tom Brady tied a playoff record with six touchdown passes - three to tight end Rob Gronkowski to match another postseason mark - as the top-seeded Pats buried the Denver Broncos 45-10 Saturday night to advance to the AFC Championship Game for the sixth time in the Brady-Bill Belichick era. The win broke a three-game playoff skid for the Patriots, dating to the Super Bowl XLII loss that marred their previously perfect 2007 season.

The Patriots will host the Baltimore Ravens or Houston Texans next Sunday afternoon.

After seemingly captivating the nation with his magical performance in last week's wild-card win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow wasn't a factor on this night, completing just nine of 26 passes for 136 yards but none of the downfield throws that marked his heroics in that unforgettable overtime thriller.
