NFL Scores Week 13: Broncos Vs. Vikings, Tim Tebow Does It Again

Tim Tebow did it again. The Denver Broncos denied the Minnesota Vikings their third win of the season with a late field goal today. How much longer can Denver keep doing this?


VIDEO: Tim Tebow Hits Demaryius Thomas For Two Touchdowns

Don’t look now, but Tim Tebow is passing the ball. It has the Denver Broncos in a close game against the Minnesota Vikings. Tebow connected with Demaryius Thomas, his fellow first-round pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, for a 21-yard touchdown pass in the third quarter.

That was Thomas’ second touchdown of the season.

The Broncos have been relying on Tebow’s arm more than his legs today. Later in the third quarter he hit Thomas for a 41-yard touchdown to make it a one-point game again. Check out the video of that touchdown here.

Thomas’ second touchdown capped off a series of big plays. Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder found Percy Harvin for a 52-yard strike two plays before that. Here’s the video of Harvin’s touchdown.

On the ensuing kickoff, Denver’s return man Quan Cosby returned the kick 63 yards to give Tebow a short field to work with on the next drive.


VIDEO: Tim Tebow Fumble Stirs Controversy

A controversial fumble call against Denver is sure to be the subject of much discussion today, and maybe for the rest of the week depending on how this game between the Vikings and Broncos ends. With Minnesota leading by a score of 12-7 with less than a minute to play, Vikings defensive end Jared Allen sacked Tim Tebow at Denver’s 28-yard line.

The ball popped out of Tebow’s hands, and Allen recovered for a one-yard gain, giving the Vikings excellent field position and just enough time to put some more points on the board. However, Tebow’s knee looked to be down before the ball popped out of his hands. Video review upheld the ruling on the field, and Minnesota added a field goal to take a 17-7 lead into the locker room at half time.

Former Vice President of Officiating for the NFL and Fox analyst Mike Pereira, agreed with the call on the field. He said this via Twitter:

Den/Min-the ground can cause a fumble if the runner is not down prior to the ball coming out.Tebows knee was not down when the ball came out

That was Tebow’s first turnover since Week 8.

Here’s the video, make the call youself.


VIDEO: Kyle Rudolph Touchdown Catch Gives Vikings The Lead

Minnesota Vikings rookie tight end Kyle Rudolph caught his second touchdown pass of the season in the second quarter of today’s game against the Denver Broncos. Rudolph’s fellow rookie, quarterback Christian Ponder, found him in the end zone for a 19-yard touchdown. The touchdown itself was not as noticeable as the beautiful catch Rudolph made.

Check out the catch right here.

A Notre Dame product, the Vikings made Rudolph the first tight end taken in the 2011 NFL Draft. He was the 43rd overall pick, taken in the second round, and he looked the part today.

The quarterback change in Minnesota, handing the job over to first-round pick Ponder, has benefited Rudolph of late. That was his second touchdown of the season and his second touchdown in his last three games.

That play gave the Vikings a 12-7 lead over the Denver Broncos, who seem to be using less option in their offense today.


VIDEO: Mario Haggan Pick Six Puts Denver On Top

For all the talk about Tim Tebow salvaging the Denver Bronco’s once seemingly lost season, the team’s defense has been a big reason for the turnaround and their hunt for an AFC West title. With rookie pass rusher Von Miller on the sidelines today, it looked fairly bleak for the Bronco’s defense. Then linebacker Mario Haggan made up for it with a masterful pick six on Vikings rookie quarterback Christian Ponder.

Haggan snatched a short pass inside Minnesota’s side of the field and returned it 16 yards for a touchdown. That gave Denver a 7-2 lead, getting back some points from a safety earlier in the game.

Here is the video of Haggan’s interception and the resulting touchdown.

Not only was that Haggan’s first interception of the season, it was the first of his career. Denver added Haggan to their roster in 2008. He miraculously survived the Josh McDaniels’ era.


VIDEO: Jared Alled Safety Gives Vikings Early Lead Over Tim Tebow And The Broncos

The Minnesota Vikings got on the board first in their game against the Denver Broncos, with a little help from Denver’s offense. Running back Willis McGahee was tackled for a one-yard loss in the end zone by Vikings’ all-world defensive end Jared Allen, giving the Vikes two points to start the game.

Check out the video of the Allen’s tackle and safety right here.

Denver could be facing a close game today, with rookie pass rusher Von Miller inactive due to injury. Giving up the safety could be the exact kind of thing that comes back to haunt them in a close one. Of course, Minnesota is playing without running back Adrian Peterson, taking away from what might have been the Super Bowl of running teams.

Minnesota leads 2-0 in the first quarter.
