Live coverage: Patriots defense keeps swarming, up 42-7

January 14, 2012 |  7:25 pm

Patriots-broncos9_350A gang sack of Tim Tebow muted the Denver Broncos' latest drive as the New England Patriots repeated the heavy pressure that has produced three sacks and seven hurries.

A third-and-21 situation netted only two yards, then another Denver punt, as the AFC divisional playoff rout continues in the third quarter.

As the drive began, Tebow had only three completions to New England Patriot quarterback Tom Brady's record six touchdown passes, tying the mark belonging to Steve Young in the 1995 Super Bowl and former Raiders quarterback Daryle Lamonica.
