Live coverage: Brady hits Branch for 61-yard touchdown, 28-7 lead
Tom Brady adores the final few minutes of the first half as a chance to pick up valuable points.
He's done it again, connecting with receiver Deion Branch for a 61-yard touchdown pass that gives the New England Patriots a 28-7 lead over Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos with 1:57 left in the first half.
A Tye Warren sack of Tebow caused a third-and-20 play that the Denver Broncos were unable to convert a first down, giving Brady the ball back at his own 28 with 2:27 remaining.
