By now you all know that the New York Jets got Tebowed last night. Well, they actually got Sanchezed too but it’s more fun to talk about Tebow Time than it is to blast Sanchez for not making any significant strides in his third season as an NFL starter. With the Broncos trailing 13-10 and 5:54 remaining in the game, Tim Tebow took his team 95 yards for the game-winning touchdown. Naturally, it was Tebow himself who ran it in from 20 yards out.
Once again, Denver was able to win with a virtually nonexistent passing game. Tebow completed 9-of-20 throws for 104 yards and no touchdowns. He was particularly inaccurate when throwing from the pocket, missing at least three wide open receivers throughout the course of the game. Per usual, none of that mattered. The Jets could not find an answer for Denver’s spread offense on the game-winning drive and Tebow led his team to yet another comeback victory, improving his record to 4-1 as a starter this season.
Despite the Broncos’ success over the last five weeks, the Tebow-style offense — the one John Fox insists his quarterback would be screwed without — still has its doubters. And it should.
