Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos are making waves in the AFC West and, with the upset win over the New York Jets, are 5-5 and just one game behind the Oakland Raiders.
Through Denver's first five games, nobody would have guessed they'd be in the playoff discussion at any point this season. But the Broncos are 4-1 under Tebow, who has been on fire lately.
With that being said—and I hate to say this—the Broncos don't have much of a chance at winning the division.
The Broncos simply aren't a great team yet, and the Oakland Raiders are playing very good football behind veteran quarterback Carson Palmer. Already a game ahead, I think the Raiders take this division.
It's rarely smart to count out Tim Tebow, and I hope he proves me wrong, but I don't think the Broncos are a good enough overall team to pass up the Raiders in this division.
