NFL Power Rankings: ESPN Moves Denver Broncos To No. 9

The Denver Broncos are clearly a top 10 team in the league based on NFL power rankings this week. ESPN's latest set of rankings has the Broncos move up one spot to No. 9 after the Dallas Cowboys tumble to No. 14 with Sunday's loss to the Dallas Cowboys. However, there is nary a mention of Tim Tebow:

Attention, opponents: Put yourself out of range before the fourth quarter.

Matt Prater has been nails the last several weeks. He kicked the game-winning field goal against the San Diego Chargers, the Minnesota Vikings and the Chicago Bears in the last three weeks while also kicking game-tying fields also. And let's not forget his game-winning field goal against the Miami Dolphins in Tebow's first start this season.

But will the Broncos be able to knock off the No. 5 New England Patriots at Mile High on Sunday? Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski are going to do their best to put the game away well before the fourth quarter. But as long as Tebow is the Broncos' quarterback, don't count them out.
