Broncos Vs. Chargers: Tim Tebow Fails At Spin Move, Finds Eric Decker For Score

Tim Tebow still looks exactly like you expect him to: Young, inaccurate, and oddly effective. In the first half against the San Diego Chargers, his Denver Broncos went down 10-0 before showing some life behind big plays from Tebow. One of those plays was an 18-yard touchdown pass to Eric Decker with one minute left in the first half. Tebow pump-faked then found Decker running open at the goal line.

That play was much prettier than Tebow's attempted spin move earlier on the drive. Tebow, trying to make something out of a broken play, miscalculated exactly how far away opposing defenders were when he unleashed what he hoped would be a devastating spin. Instead, this happened:


The Chargers took a 10-7 lead into halftime. Both teams are fighting to separate themselves from the rest of a packed (and wholly mediocre) AFC West. Tebow has 45 yards on 3-for-7 passing and 25 yards rushing on the day.


Ryan Mathews Status Update: Charges RB Expected To Play Vs. Broncos

San Diego Chargers running back Ryan Mathews is officially listed as probable for the Chargers Week 12 match up with the Denver Broncos. Mathews missed practice on Thursday, leaving some doubt that he would be active on Sunday, but on Friday was a full participant and is expected to play against the Broncos.

If Mathews somehow can't play and is ruled a late scratch by the Chargers, back up running back Mike Tolbert is a good play. Tolbert is typically a good play even when Mathews is healthy, as Tolbert seems to get the majority of short yardage runs, including runs on the goal line.
