led Denver to a 17-13 victory over the New York Jets with a 95-yard scoring drive capped by his 20-yard touchdown run at the 58-second mark. Before he scored a 20-yard touchdown, Tebow saw the blitz and outflanked safety Eric Smith around the left edge, then cut back and bulled his way past other Jets into the end zone. Since Tebow replaced Kyle Orton as the starting quarterback last month, the Broncos (5-5) have won four of five games, three of them in down-to-the-wire fashion, to climb within a half-game of Oakland in the AFC West.
Denver, which is 4-14 since the start of last season without Tebow, wouldn’t be in the playoff mix without Tebow. However, there’s also no doubting Tebow struggles to move the ball for much of the game. “He’s super competitive,” Broncos coach John Fox said. “He never lays his sword down. He’s going to fight you to the death.” On the other hand, The Jets (5-5) lost their second heart-breaker in four days. Mark Sanchez’s desperation pass toward the end zone was batted down as time expired. “Tim Tebow did it. He shocked me,” said Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis, who earlier in the week said no NFL team could be successful over the long drag mainly running an option offense, as the Broncos are doing with Tebow.Read also
