The New England Patriots are preparing for Tebowmania - again.

The Patriots will host the Denver Broncos and unconventional quarterback Tim Tebow in the second round of the NFL playoffs on Saturday night. The Broncos advanced by beating the Pittsburgh Steelers 29-23 on Sunday when Tebow connected with Demaryius Thomas for an 80-yard score on the first play of overtime.

It took only 11 seconds - the fastest overtime in NFL history.

The Patriots have already beaten the Broncos this season - a 41-23 victory on Dec. 18 that snapped Denver's six-game winning streak.

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady told WEEI radio in Boston that it's a challenge for the defense to prepare for Tebow, who likes to run the ball.
