FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — For his latest trick, Tim Tebow is making Tom Brady disappear from the headlines. Now, with Tebowmania in full force, the Denver Broncos hope to make the New England Patriots disappear from the playoffs when they meet Saturday night.
Photographs of the devout, much doubted Denver quarterback kneeling on the turf in prayer are a weekly occurrence. There are shots of him with arms thrust in the air after a scoring play.
But where are those pictures of Brady posing with supermodel wife Gisele Bundchen or with the Patriots' title trophies?
That's what happens when Tebow leads the Broncos to four overtime wins in one season, capped by last week's playoff victory over Pittsburgh. For Brady, coming off one of the best of his 10 full seasons, greatness is expected and not often celebrated.
