FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Tom Brady's way of dealing with Tebowmania was to silence it with a record-shattering performance.
And so ended one of the season's most exciting storylines -- one that caught the nation's attention and began when Denver was 1-4 and made Tebow a starter. The one-time third-stringer promptly won six in a row and seven of eight, with a string of stunning comebacks, and the Broncos ended up backing into the AFC West title.
