DIVISIONAL ROUND VS. DENVER BRONCOS W 45-10
and that’s what we call bradying, kids. our fearless quarterback was perfect for the first 11 minutes of the game against the broncos, going 8/8 for 138 yards and two touchdowns. by the end of the first quarter, he had more touchdown passes (three) than tebow had completions, and he ended the half tying an nfl record with five. tommy was so on fire, he was actually breathing smoke!
wes welker was pretty fired up himself, and he got the ball rolling, literally, with a dive-and-roll catch for the first touchdown of the night. with so many weapons on our offense, it seems like wes might get lost in the shuffle, but tommy still hearts him just as much as i do.
everyone on the team stepped up this week, and there were several noteworthy performances. collectively, our defense looked tighter than they have for much of the season, branch made a great play on a long pass, and hernandez delivered one hell of a hit on the defender trying to return an interception. still, when you throw six touchdown passes, you damned well better clinch the award that’s named after you. so, this week’s tommy goes to tom brady, for putting on a performance for the record books and reminding us why we’re the luckiest fans in the nfl.
we play the ravens in the first game on sunday, and it’s going to be our biggest test of the season. in spite of our winning record against them, the ravens almost always outplay us, and their defense is definitely more formidable than denver’s. if our patriots play at the same level they did on saturday, i’m cautiously optimistic, but it’ll probably be a close one. we’re getting down to the wire here, kids, so don’t hold back! send your happy patriots thoughts in full force, and hopefully the next totw won’t be the last!
have a great week, and go pats!
