Tim Tebow and the Broncos may not look pretty doing it, but their Pop Warner-esque offense is getting them results, something that will be tested on Thursday against the Jets.
The Denver Broncos may run their offense out of a Pop Warner playbook, but it's hard to deny its effectiveness. As they get ready to host the New York Jets on Thursday, they have gone 3-1 since Tim Tebow was given control of the "offense." Tebow attempted just eight passes in Sunday's win and has completed just 12 passes in his past two games, but still has seven touchdown passes and just one interception.
The Jets are coming off a game in which their defense faced 39 pass attempts. Tom Brady ended up passing for 329 yards and three touchdowns and the Patriots won 37-16, despite the Jets holding them to 60 yards rushing.
That rushing total was definitely a positive sign for the Jets, as they had entered the game struggling against the run. Even after that performance, their 116.0 average rushing yards allowed ranks just 15th in the league. The Broncos, meanwhile, have been rushing for a NFL-best 246.0 yards per game since Week 8.
