FOXBORO, Ma. - Tom Brady and God's favorites, the New England Patriots, opened up a can of old-fashioned whoop-bottom on the Denver Broncos, beating them 45-10 in the AFC title game.
It did not, however, take four quarters for Tim Tebow to realize that he was not shining in the light of God's favor. The half-time score was 35-7.
As if the score wouldn't tell the whole story, God and Bill Belichick went Old Testament on the Broncos and had Tom Brady punt on third down with less than three minutes left in the game.
Denver's quarterback, however, would not be rattled. "It doesn't mean that God does not love us at all. This doesn't equate us with Satan's minions or something.
"We do need, though, to take another look at God's playbook to see where we fit in. It's obviously not at the Super Bowl."
