The Denver Broncos lost to the New York Jets yesterday 20-24 – the Jets scored 14 points in the fourth quarter to put them on top. Even though the Broncos lost, this game was still exciting for Tim Tebow fans because he finally got significant playing time. Tim carried the ball 6 times for 23 yards and scored on a 5 yard run – the first touchdown of his NFL career.
Here’s a highlight video of his touchdown.
Just two weeks ago, McDaniels labeled “ridiculous” the suggestion that Tebow could be the answer to the Broncos’ short-yardage struggles in the red zone. Looks like McDaniels was throwing a little smoke screen out there so he could keep Tim a surprise for the Jets.
Now that teams know the Broncos will use Tim in short yardage running situations, the Broncos need to let Tim throw the ball a handful of times to keep defenses on their feet. When Tebow comes in the game they won’t know what to expect.
