New England Patriots vs. Denver Broncos GameThread - NFL Divisional Playoff

Last weekend, the only advancing team that needed to win in dramatic fashion was - of course - the Tim Tebow-led Denver Broncos. Their 29-23 overtime triumph over the Pittsburgh Steelers served as the only entertaining game of wild card weekend - unless, of course, you're a fan of the Texans, Saints or Giants.

It's likely that Tebow and the Broncos will need more theatrics to win a second consecutive playoff game, considering they're taking on the AFC's top-seeded New England Patriots this evening. It's not that the Patriots are indomitable - they've lost their last three post-season games, including two at home - it's that Tom Brady and New England's passing attack is so prolific that Denver may struggle to keep up, despite how Tebow shredded the Steelers last week.

Either way, this is a Bills blog, so it's hard to root against a team playing the Patriots. Go Broncos, right? Yep. Go Broncos.
