AFC Wild Card 2012: Tim Tebow Will Try To Reverse Turnover-Fueled Skid Against Pittsburgh

The Steelers top-rated defense has been surprisingly unable to create turnovers this season.

While Tim Tebow's ability to lead the Denver Broncos on a series of improbable fourth-quarter comebacks garnered much of the publicity during the team's six-game win streak, his ability to avoid turnovers throughout the game was just as important.

However, in his last two games against the New England Patriots and the Kansas City Chiefs, Tebow has turned it over five times, as many as he had in his first eight starts.

And if Denver is going to have any chance to defeat the heavily favored Pittsburgh Steelers in their AFC Wild Card round playoff game, Tebow will have to take better care of the ball.

For Tebow, the good news is that he will be facing a Steelers defense that has forced only 15 turnovers this year, lowest in the NFL.

Pittsburgh's inability to force turnovers has been the big Achilles heel of a vaunted defense rated No. 1 in the NFL in pass yardage allowed.
