VIDEO: Broncos, Patriots Skirmish At End Of 2012 NFL Playoff Game

The Denver Broncos and the New England Patriots broke out into a skirmish toward the end of Saturday;s 2012 NFL Playoff game. Von Miller shouldered a Patriots player once the punt had reached far into Broncos territory and then Robert Ayers got into it when everyone got to the sideline. That led to a crowded skirmish on the sidelines.

Bill Belichick got into the middle of it in an attempt to end it. A yell of "Get your asses of of there!" could be heard. There was a pile on and some rolling around, and by the end of it Ryan McBean appeared to be the last person to get up from all of it.


And then right before that we saw Tom Brady punt the ball. We pretty much saw everything in this game:

Broncos Vs. Patriots: Tom Brady Ties Postseason Single Game Record With 6th TD Pass

Tom Brady finished the first half of Saturday's New England Patriots game against the Denver Broncos with five touchdown passes. That set the record for most touchdown passes in a single half, Barely three minutes into the second half, Brady has already tied the single-game postseason record with six touchdown passes. He found Aaron Hernandez for a 17-yard score and a 42-7 lead.


Hernandez and fellow tight end Rob Gronkowski have been shredding the Denver secondary all game long. On this play, Hernandez catches the ball and jukes to his right to break free and find his way into the end zone. The 42 points are also the most in Patriots franchise history and they aren't going to stop at this point.

Broncos Vs. Patriots Halftime Score: New England Cruising With 35-7 Lead

There really wasn't much defense by the Broncos on that play. Gronkowski caught that ball with ease and floated into the end zone for the four-touchdown lead. Gronkowski's three touchdowns tied the NFL record for most touchdown receptions in a single playoff game.

While Brady is 18-of-25 for 246 yards, Tim Tebow is 3-of-10 for 28 yards. Willis McGahee has 68 yards rushing, but there isn't much going on for this team right now. They will receive the ball to start the second half.

Broncos Vs. Patriots Score: Willis McGahee Scores TD After Tom Brady INT

The Denver Broncos are on the score board in the second quarter. After a 12-yard catch and run by Demaryius Thomas on third down gave the Broncos a first down at the end of the first quarter, the teams needed to change sides with the end of the quarter. Willis McGahee then made it into the end zone on the first play of the second quarter. There were some extracurricular activities at the end of the play.


This is the play that made the score possible. Tom Brady must've been temporarily blind when he threw this interception. That will probably be the easiest pick of Quinton Carter's career. He was sitting back in center field and Brady just threw it right at him. Carter received a big hit to end that run, but he was already banged up earlier in the game. Obviously, he returned and was able to make that play. Carter intercepted

VIDEOS: Tim Tebow's Fumble Leads To Amazing Rob Gronkowski TD Catch

Tim Tebow's issues holding onto the ball reared its head early on in Saturday's Denver Broncos game against the New England Patriots. After the Tom Brady touchdown pass, Tebow had a 14-yard run to pick up a first down, but then a couple of plays later he came under pressure, was sacked and fumbled the ball:


Right tackle Orlando Franklin is supposed to pass block against Rob Ninkovich here, but Franklin becomes unbalanced and allows Ninkovich to bypass him. Once there, Ninkovich hits Tebow from behind and forces the ball to the ground.

The Patriots then took advantage of that turnover to score another touchdown. Rob Gronkowski made an amazing floating touchdown grab for the 14-0 lead. The play was reviewed since it appeared he may not have had complete control of the ball as he came down, but the referee upheld the call.
