No More Tebow-time

In case you haven’t been paying attention to the hype, there’s this guy in the NFL named Tim Tebow who everyone is talking about. I got to see him in person, covering the AFC Playoffs as the Denver Broncos took on the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium over the weekend. Much like the experts were predicting, things did not go well for the young quarterback against the heavily favored Patriots, who did exactly what they were supposed to do as the No. 1 seed.

Here’s a selection of my images from the game, featuring a whole bunch of scoring. Much thanks to the folks at the European Pressphoto Agency, who hired me for the game. Most of what you see here can be licensed through them.
