As many believers as Tim Tebow has picked up in recent weeks, it really hasn't turned many in favor of the Denver Broncos for this week's game against the New England Patriots. The Patriots are the first real test the Broncos have had since they lost to the Detroit Lions at the end of October. And that probably plays into why eight out of 10 participants on ESPN's pick'em panel have selected the Patriots to defeat the Denver Broncos.
Eric Allen and Chris Mortensen are the two guys who go out on a limb this week for the Broncos. Surely those two must believe that Tim Tebow will be able to do more than Tom Brady in delivering a victory in this game. Or something.
If Tebow/Denver Broncos time comes to an end anytime soon, there should be no shame in falling to the Patriots. We can't expect Tebow to never lose another game.
