Broncos Vs. Cowboys: Halftime, In Which Tim Tebow Actually Is The Story

Yes, the most interesting thing about the preseason game between the Denver Broncos and Dallas Cowboys has actually been the play of Tim Tebow. Imagine that: The story that everyone was hoping for has actually materialized in front of our very eyes. Tebow has been very effective despite playing like a crazy person, while Kyle Orton was not good in his only series. It's a quarterback controversy! Except probably not really, but Tebow is working on making it happen. At halftime, the Broncos lead by a score of 9-3.

Tebow is 5/6 for 85 yards passing and has two runs for 15 yards. He's had a couple of extremely eventful plays that were changed by penalties, but they still highlight his decision making or lack thereof. In his first series, Tebow threw an awful interception, only to have it called back for pass interference. In his final series of the half, he evaded defenders on a play that looked like the opening credits to The Benny Hill Show as he ran to one sideline, turned around as a defender tried to push him down, then ran back the other way before throwing a one-yard pass.

As for the Cowboys, the talking points are minimal. Felix Jones was great in his lone series while Tony Romo looked a tad bit rusty. The backups haven't done much of anything and Jason Garrett doesn't seem too concerned. It will get interesting in the next two games when Romo, Jones and others actually play multiple series.
