Tim Tebow scored his first touchdown in the NFL on Sunday when the Denver Broncos took on the New York Jets. Fans everywhere rejoiced! That $80 spent on Tebow's Broncos jersey may not have been a waste after all.
Love him or hate him, Tim Tebow could be just what the Broncos' offense needs to get the job done—especially in the red zone.
Starting quarterback, Kyle Orton, was off to a pretty good season before he had his worst game against one of the strongest defenses in the NFL on Sunday.
Orton's stats are impressive, but there is one thing that doesn't add up: he has 1,942 yards passing so far this season, but the Denver Broncos can't seem to establish a ground attack. Orton can get the ball down the field, but the lack of a reliable running game hurts the Broncos as they get ready to score.
Could Tim Tebow be the answer?
This is not a suggestion that Tebow be handed the starting job, but the rookie could add the ground threat the Broncos desperately need.
Let's take a look at the rest of the Broncos' schedule and determine how much impact Tim Tebow could have on Denver's season.
