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

The Denver Broncos are certainly going to need divine intervention in the second half of Saturday's 2012 NFL Playoff game against the New England Patriots. They are losing, 35-7, at halftime.

Tom Brady has thrown an NFL record five touchdown passes in the first half, including the one you'll see below. It was his final one of the half and it was his third to Rob Gronkowski.

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.
