The New England Patriots are dangerously close to blowing wide open this 2012 NFL Playoffs game against the Denver Broncos. Tom Brady just threw his third touchdown in the game and it's only halfway through the second quarter. He found Rob Gronkowski, who had his second touchdown of the game.

Gronkowski shows great body control and movement to get through what is arguably a weak secondary now that it is missing its two starting safeties. Gronkowski now has 19 touchdown receptions overall this season while Tom Brady's 33 touchdowns are third most in playoff history.
On the next drive, Tim Tebow threw a dangerous pass to the sidelines that almost wound up as an interception. Instead, it fell incomplete and the Broncos punted a few plays later. The Patriots lead, 21-7.
