Everyone in the world, much more so the sports world, knows who Tim Tebow is. 

The super religious quarterback who has helped lead multiple 4th quarter and overtime drives this year on his way to being 7-1 as a starter this season.

Then you have the Green Bay Packers who are 13-0, and trying to become the first team in history to go 19-0. 

Everyone remembers the New England Patriots going undefeated all the way through the season only to lose in a historical Super Bowl to the New York Giants, but the Packers attempt at that exact same task is so much different.

The Packers are the defending Super Bowl champions, which historically would make it harder for most teams to go back and even make the Super Bowl this year, much less do it undefeated and repeat as champs. 

Green Bay though, has made it to five super bowls, and each of the first four were back-to-back. So, there is no reason to think they won't be there this year. 

During the Patriots' run to an undefeated regular season, there was a boatload of attention given to them and with the attention came more pressure than could ever be handled by a human being.

This year, the Packers are the hottest team in football, have the most electric offense and they haven't lost a game, but the attention has not been on the Packers. 

Most of the media attention over the last two months has been on Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos. What will they do next week? Will they win? Is he an NFL quarterback? How will God come through for him this time?

With all the attention on another player and team, Aaron Rodgers and the Packers are set up nicely to make a run at a perfect season. There is nowhere near the pressure the Patriots faced trying this same task just a couple of years ago. 

It appears as though Tebowmania is going to help the Packers make it through at least the regular season without a loss—and without feeling any of the pressure they should be feeling from the media at this point in the season.
