To say Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos played an ugly game would be an understatement but at the end of the day there aren't ugly wins -- they're just wins. The Broncos improved to 5-5 on the season and 4-1 with Tebow as the starter as the Broncos QB engineered a 95-yard drive and the winning touchdown run to beat the New York Jets on Thursday Night Football.
I can't really explain this one -- Tebow and the Broncos didn't play great for much of this game. In Tebow's first 11 drives, he completed 6-of-15 passes for 69 yards and rushed only twice for 11 yards.
But with the Broncos down 13-10, and about six minutes left in the game,Tebow put together a drive we're not going to forget anytime soon -- 12 plays and 95 yards in less than five minutes capped off by Tebow's game-winning 20-yard run. On that drive, Tebow completed 3-of-5 passes for 35 yards and rushed the ball six times for 57 yards.
Whatever it is, Tebow turns it on in the fourth quarter. He's gaining a reputation as someone who plays better than usual late in a game and that's a special trait to have, as John Elway, VP of the Broncos, could attest.
Tebow's final numbers are 9-of-20 passing for 104 yards and eight rushes for 68 yards. The Broncos -- yes, the Broncos -- have a chance to be tied for first place depending on what the rest of the AFC West does this week.
