The Most Overlooked Stories in the NFL Because of Tim Tebow

Tim Tebow has done it again, leading his Denver Broncos to a sixth consecutive victory. Their latest victim? The Chicago Bears, a team that had Tebow and Co. on the ropes until Marion Barber's miscues and the rest of the team's incompetence gave the Broncos more time than they should have had to set up a 59-yard field goal and force overtime.

An incredible story is developing in Denver. A team that was 2-5 and so bad it had to bench Kyle Orton has turned into a club that is three games above .500 and in the driver's seat to win the AFC West.

But the media has used "Tebow-mania" to push some of the best stories of the year to the wayside.

Dan Marino's single-season passing record could be broken by four quarterbacks, the rushing title is going to be handed to a running back that might finish with more yards than his rookie quarterback and a certain team from a certain Midwestern town might have the best chance to go undefeated since the New England Patriots lost (i.e. choked) in Super Bowl XLII.

Tebow deserves of a lot of credit and a lot of media attention. He went from certain Heisman bust to perennial Pro Bowl quarterback. But there's a lot more things happening in the NFL than Tebow winning six straight games.

With that said, I give you the most overlooked stories in the NFL—because of Tim Tebow.
