It's official—the Denver Broncos have named their starting quarterback for the 2012 season. You may have heard of him. His name is Tim Tebow.

According to Jeff Darlington of NFL.com, "the Broncos plan to move forward with the mindset that Tebow will remain the team's starter in 2012" whether they clinch the AFC West on Sunday or not.

Tebow has done very well this season as starting quarterback for Denver. Prior to Sunday's big game against the Chiefs, Tebow has seven wins and just three losses in 10 starts. He is also a big reason why the Broncos lead the NFL in rushing offense.

Denver (8-7) takes on Kansas City (6-9) in Denver on Sunday at 4:15 p.m. ET. If the Broncos win, or even if the Raiders lose, Denver will make the postseason for the first time since 2005. The Raiders (8-7) face off against the Chargers (7-8) in Oakland at also at 4:15.
