Tim Tebow and the Broncos will lose this weekend.

Gary The Sox Fan (5-2-3) vs The Book of Tebow (11-65-2)

Tom Brady and the high powered Patriots offense will use their home field and extra week of rest and preparation to destroy the Broncos. The Gillette will be rocking when the Broncos offense is on the field to disrupt Tebow.

3 facts

1. Tom Brady has never beaten Denver in the Postseason

2. Since 2008 the Patriots haven't won a home playoff game

3. Tim Tebow is Undefeated in the postseason.

4th free fact

In his last 3 postseason appearances, Tom Brady has been outplayed by Mark Sanchez, Joe Flacco, and Eli Manning.

I got the Broncos

Your facts have some holes in them.

1) Tom Brady has only played once against Denver in the playoffs. The game was in Denver. Brady's go to receivers were Branch and Givens. They committed 3 fumbles in the game.

2) In 2009 they didn't make the playoffs with Matt Cassell at the helm. 2010 they faced a hot Ravens team, and 2011 they outplayed the Jets in nearly every offensive category except for the final score. Their defense proved to be their achilles heel.

3) Tim Tebow has only played one playoff game and it was in the friendly confines of Sports Authority field at Mile High Stadium. He has never played a road playoff game.

4) Mark Sanchez 16/25 194 yards Tom Brady 29/45 299 yards.
Joe Flacco 4/10 34 yards Tom Brady 23/42 154 yards.
Eli Manning 19/34 255 yards Tom Brady 29/48 266 yards.

One could argue that the Pats got screwed against the Giants. By today's rules, Eli Manning would have been ruled down and sacked before the pass to David Tyree.

My facts are still facts. Here some more.

In 2007 The Pats beat the Giants in the regular season 38-35. They lost to the Pats in the Superbowl 17-14

In 2009 The Pats beat the Ravens 27-21 in the Regular Season. The lost the Ravens in the Wild Card round 33-14

In 2010 The Pats beat the Jets 42-3 in the regular season. They lost the Jets in the Divisional Round 28-21.

Lets not forget in 2005 They were swept by the Broncos. In 2006 They were swept by the Colts.

In fact, only once in the past 7 seasons had the Patriots beat a team in the regular season, and then again in the postseason. That was 2007 against the Chargers.

Also facts.

Tim Tebow threw for 316 yards against the Steelers.

The Steelers have the number 1 ranked pass defense.

The Patriots have the number 31 ranked pass defense.

Plus if the game is close, Broncos can handle the Pats. Broncos are 5-1 with Tebow at QB in game decided by 4 points or less. The Patriots are 2-2.

The patriots aren't as unbeatable as people think. In fact thier dynasty hasn't been the same since they took apart that defense.

I expect the Broncos to put up big numbers on that d

Of those 316 yards that Tebow threw for, 80 of those came on the over-time pass that actually only sailed 15 yards.

The Patriots have some grand company in the cellar of poor pass defense. The bottom 4 are the Giants, the Saints, the Pats, and the Packers. I wouldn't put much emphasis on pass defense as this new throw happy NFL will obliterate any preconceived notions of defense winning games. It is called the bend but not break mentality. If Tebow regularly marches up the field but only gets a field goal attempt out of a lengthy drive, the Patriots who can quickly score a TD would consider that acceptable. If you are going to use regular season defensive ranks, the Broncos play in a much weaker division against weaker opponents and ranked 18th in pass defense. The Patriots allowed 23 touchdown passes and the Broncos allowed 24 touchdown passes. The Patriots defense had 23 interceptions and the Broncos had 9. This all goes to show that Yards/game doesn't mean squat if you can stop the opposing team from getting into your endzone.

I'm sorry since when did Recievers YAC didn't count towards the quarterbacks passing yards stats? I could have sworn every quarterback in the history of quarterbacks had passing yards that happened after the reciever made the catch? Now it doesn't count for Tebow? Interesting...

There is a difference in "Bend but don't break" and "Awful pass defense that gets bailed out by Brady" The following is a list of QB's that threw for over 300 yards against the Patriots

Chad Henne
Philip Rivers
Ryan Fitzpatrick
Jason Campbell
Tony Romo
Ben Roethilisburger
Vince Young
Dan Orlovsky

Take that into account that Broncos-Pats game one, The Broncos lost the turnover battle including the game changing muffed punt, which swung momentum back to the Patriots. The first 20 minutes of that game the Broncos had thier way.

To recap.

BB and Brady are 1-6 in regular season-post season rematches in the past 7 seasons

Patriots have the 32nd ranked Pass D, going against a team that threw all over the number 1 ranked pass D.

The Patriots have lost thier last 2 home playoff games to inferior teams

Tim Tebow loves Jesus

Broncos 26-Patiots 24

Tebow 316

This is my first TD. I know there are a bunch of Tebow lovers out there.

"Tim Tebow is undefeated this postseason."He is, holy cr*p? I could have sworn that the BRONCOS beat the steelers last week and NOT Tebow all by himself.

Agreed. He throws a 15 yd post to Thomas takes it to the house and Tebow is getting all the credit for that pass. How about some love for Thomas?

TEBOW will win no matter what the rest of the team does. That is just the way it is.

Tebow 34- Patiots 17

January 13, 2012  12:25 PM ET

Denver probably will get beat pretty good in this game but I think I'm rooting for Tebow to do it again because everybody gets behind a guy that all the experts say can't get it done. I want to see him continue to improve....and if he mentions his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ....all the better.

January 13, 2012  12:27 PM ET

Thomas did an awesome job, straight arming the defender and outrunning everybody to the end zone.

January 13, 2012  12:42 PM ET

Pats will probably win the game but hey, "on any given Sunday," (or Saturday), right ? But in a way, Tebow and the Broncos have already won. This is a team that was dead and buried at 1-4. Lo and behold Tebow leap-frogs Brady Quinn to get the start and they go 7-1 (8-5 altogether including last week). Whatever you may think of the kid's skills, mechanics, whatever, he just wins, baby! <flips quarter to Al Davis' estate>

January 13, 2012  12:43 PM ET

8-4, not 8-5, my bad.

January 13, 2012  01:11 PM ET

4th free fact

These are not free, I paid for it with time, and the pain of reading your crappy points.

January 13, 2012  01:18 PM ET

Good Vs. Evil, Part II... Good Triumphs this time!!!

Not a chance in hell.

January 13, 2012  01:23 PM ET

If Denver can manage not to turn the ball over 3 straight times inside their own 20, they can stay in the game. With their recent playoff history, all the pressure is firmly on the Patriots. Denver is playing with house money at this point.

January 13, 2012  01:28 PM ET

He is finally healthy for the first time since being drafted. The Patriots probably won't bring everyone up in the box (like the Steelers did) which could open up the run for Denver. The Pat's weakness is giving up the long plays. (most 20+ plays given up the NFL). I think they will play it safe and try to eliminate the over the top throws.

January 13, 2012  01:28 PM ET

Meant to quote comment 11 ^^^

January 13, 2012  01:31 PM ET

I admittedly don't know much about the NFL, but I do know this: I watched the Steelers/Broncos game last weekend and it's clear that Tim Tebow is the best quarterback every. He's just playing rope-a-dope with you nay-sayers.

January 13, 2012  01:48 PM ET

I find it funny that you say I am lacking in the intelligence department when you can't form a coherent sentence.
