Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos look to continue their march to the playoffs. The Broncos are 6-1 since Tebow became the starter and the Chicago Bears stand in the way of another victory.

The more the Denver Broncos win with Tim Tebow at quarterback, the more people are going to start believing in him. Having a 6-1 record will do that, and as much as this shouldn't be sustainable that is what it has turned into. This week Tebowmania will host the Chicago Bears. The Broncos opened as three point favorites, according to Odds Shark. The line shifted up by half of a point, but the odds makers still see this as a close game.

Last week, the Broncos were underdogs against the Minnesota Vikings, a 2-9 team, and pulled out a last-minute victory, as has become the team's style. Being the favorite this time around will certainly be different. However, they certainly deserve that status. The Bears are without Jay Cutler due to a thumb injury, Caleb Hanie has been mediocre at best and Matt Forte has an MCL sprain. It seems like the perfect situation for the Broncos to not require a last minute victory.

The over under opened at 36 points and moved down half of a point. With the lack of offense the Bears have now and Tebow's inconsistent offense, this could be a low-scoring game.
