Tim Tebow Interception Changed To Fumble In Broncos Vs. Bills Game

The NFL decided that one of Tim Tebow's four interceptions against the Buffalo Bills should actually be a fumble, making that ruling on Wednesday. The fumble, which you can see video of below, was the second straight "interception" Tebow had thrown in the game, putting the ball in Jairus Byrd's hands just one offensive play before that one. Byrd, like Spencer Johnson, took it to the house. The turnovers for six points each pretty much ended the Broncos' chances of winning the game.

For what little comfort it provides, Tebow wasn't actually making a throwing motion, enabling the NFL to reverse the ruling on the field and making it a fumble. But it's still a turnover, either way. No team is going to win a game by throwing multiple interceptions.
