Tim Tebow Fantasy Update: Broncos QB Delivers Solid Performance In Loss

While Tim Tebow wasn't able to find away to pull off another thrilling victory, his performance surely did enough to please his Fantasy Football owners. Although Tebow had a typically steady day through the air, completing 11/22 for 194 yards, it was on the ground where he made his huge impact. In the loss, Tebow managed to rush 12 times for 93 yards and 2 TD's. This marked his first game with multiple rushing TD's this season.

One worrisome factor for people who start Tebow is the fact that he wasn't able to take advantage of the porous New England secondary. The Patriots entered this game ranked last in the NFL in opponents passing yards per game, as they allowed an average of 308.7 ypg heading into this meeting with the Broncos.

Tebow and the Broncos will certainly have the chance to bounce back against the Buffalo Bills next week. The Bills have lost seven straight games and rank 25th in the NFL in opponents rushing yards per game. While they are a little better against the pass, ranking 16th in the NFL in opponents passing yards per game, this is certainly a defense the Broncos are capable of succeeding against.
