The New England Patriots needed a big play in the worst way late in the fourth quarter. Somehow, Rob Gronkowski managed to make this epic reception while being swamped by double coverage. Gronkowski never ceases to amaze. There haven't many players in NFL history with his size, downfield speed and ability to make in-route adjustments. Gronkowski is simply in a league of his own.
Von Miller has been Tom Brady's worst nightmare today. Miller picked Brady off in the first half, has been in his face all game, and sacked him 2.5 times. Miller elected to exude some joy about his play today by busting a dance move after sacking Brady mid-way through the third quarter. With the way the NFL has cracked down on celebrations in any manner, it's hard to believe Miller got away with this without being slapped with an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty.
Tom Brady could have been timed with a sun dial, but this run got the job done.
Peyton Manning's arm strength is not great, but Emmanuel Sanders rescued him with a fantastic catch.
Watch New England Patriots linebacker Jamie Collins put a solid, clean hit on Denver Broncos running back Ronnie Hillman.

With this touchdown, Rob Gronkowski set two records. He's now the New England Patriots' leader in playoff TDs (non-QB) as well as the NFL's all-time leader (eight) in playoff TDs from a tight end.
