Tim Tebow did for the Denver Broncos what Brady Quinn was unable to do during his time in the game: put points on the board. Shutout for until the final three minutes of the game, Tebow directed the Broncos to a touchdown on a six-play, 94-yard drive. On his second consecutive pass to Eron Riley, Tebow hit his receiver for a 43-yard touchdown pass and six points. Matt Prater added the extra point, bringing the game to its final 26-7 score.
That drive by Tebow took up nearly half of the team's total yards, which stood at 200 at that moment. A poor first half by Brady Quinn (4-of-12, 26 yards, 1 INT) stalled the offense. Adam Weber did come in during the final minute of the game and was promptly sacked. He made up for it with a pass to Eron Riley that went for 89 yards. Weber attempted to scramble for a touchdown on the last play of the game, but he fell short of the goal line as time expired.
Ronald Bartel (12-of-16, 216 yards, 2 TD) and Brodie Croyle (10-of-16, 104 yards) exploited a porous Broncos secondary composed of second- and third-teamers. William Powell pounded away on the ground, needing 29 carries to come up with 60 yards.
The Broncos finish the preseason with a 2-2 record and open the season on Monday, Sept. 12 against the Oakland Raiders in Denver.
