Tebow doesn't get saved around Brady even on a Sunday. The Patriots defense stepped up (kinda, it was Tebow they were facing). When lining up against QBs who can't really sling it, the suspect New England defense looks good. This weekend they play another subpar team in the Miami Dolphins so look for another W and home field advantage in the playoffs. —Richard Boadu
