It was a wild, wild half, with plenty of Tebowmania for those who are interested in that. And there was a lot of points, for those who are interested in that. There was also, some backs-against-the-wall play by the Pats D.
After 30 minutes, it’s Patriots 27, Broncos 16.
Two forced fumbles by the Patriots defense led to 10 points, with the final touchdown of the half coming on a Tom Brady one-yard plunge. And right before the half, Quan Cosby fumbled for the Broncos on a punt, and that led to three more points.
This was after the defense allowed a whopping 167 rushing yards in the first quarter. And then DE Andre Carter went down with an apparent knee injury. But still, they’ve scored the last 20 points of the half.
QB Tim Tebow is 5 of 8 passing for 68 yards, while he is 6 of 38 rushing with one fumble. QB Tom Brady has 12 completions on 21 attempts for 171 yards and two TDs. Aaron Hernandez has 83 yards receiving, and Chad Ochocinco has his first TD.
