VIDEO: Tim Tebow Fumble Gives Ball Right Back To Patriots

After the New England Patriots took an early 7-0 lead on a Wes Welker touchdown, the Denver Broncos began moving down the football field to try to answer the score. On the first passing play of the game, Tim Tebow dropped back to pass and was nearly sacked, but he was able to escape the pressure and picked up a 14-yard gain with his legs for the first down. On the next play, Willis McGahee went off tackle for a 19-yard gain and it looked like the Broncos offense was going to roll. Then this happened...

On the next passing play, Tebow dropped back to pass and was sacked from his blind side by Rob Ninkovich and fumbled the football due to his long release. New England recovered the football and went to work.
