The New York Jets may be 1-3 on the road this season, but are we really to believe Tebow's new spark to the Broncos' run game is going to lift Denver past the Jets?
Thursday Night Football is the perfect way to kick off the weekend and you don't want to miss out. Here's info and when and where to catch the action.

Tebow may not be proving that he's capable of being a pocket passer and his numbers through the air are embarrassing, but he's winning.
That's because the Broncos are suddenly the most dangerous rushing team in the NFL. With 246 rushing YPG since Week 8, teams haven't been able to contain their modified spread option.
It will be a different story when they take on Rex Ryan and the Jets. Option quarterbacks don't succeed in the NFL. The Broncos are about to find out that their gimmick offense is no different.
The Jets allow 116 rushing YPG, which hardly suggests that they are going to be the team to shut down the Broncos' run game. Ryan is a defensive genius though. Even on a short week, the Jets are going to be coached up on how to shut this run attack before it ever gets going.
All of this talk about taking away Darrelle Revis and taking advantage of the Jets is nonsense. The Broncos have figured out a way to fool their AFC West opponents and the then-winless Dolphins, but they are going to be knocked out when they move up a weight class tonight.
