The Denver Broncos and
savior martyr quarterback Tim Tebow travel to Oakland to take on their AFC West foe, the Raiders. The Broncos looked awful against the Lions last week, and the Raiders have a pretty fearsome defense themselves. Tebow will need to pull off some pretty spectacular magic with the Broncos' starting running back, Willis McGahee, still sidelined with an injury.
On the other side, the Raiders will be without starting running back Darren McFadden, but new quarterback Carson Palmer will have had another week to get acquainted with the playbook and try to shake off the rust. How he performs will make the difference in this game. That, and of course, if Tebow can channel a higher power through the elongated throwing motion.
There's near unanimity among the NFL experts on the interwebs that the Raiders will take this one. Everyone at ESPN agrees, as does Yahoo!'s triumverate of NFL writers. Only CBS' Will Brinson believes in The Tebow enough to pick the Broncos to win.
