Week 14 NFL Power Rankings: Brian Billick Moves Denver Broncos Up, Is Converted Tim Tebow Fan

Brian Billick was the color commentator for Sunday's Denver Broncos victory over the Minnesota Vikings, and he finally saw the light about Tim Tebow. After ranking the Broncos No. 15 in his FOX Sports NFL power rankings last week, Billick moved the Broncos up to No. 8 this week:

After six weeks of criticizing him, I have done a complete 180 and am now fully aboard the Tim Tebow bandwagon. This young man has what it takes to be successful in the NFL.

We keep hearing about what Tim Tebow isn't or what he can't do. But here, Billick fully admits to completely changing his opinion about the second-year quarterback. Of course, we also need to throw in the strong play of the defense in previous games, but we definitely need to give Tebow most of the credit for Sunday's victory.

Billick obviously saw Tebow able to make those key throws to Demaryius Thomas, as two of the four went for touchdowns and the others helped set up scores. Tebow is an improving player and making others in the media believe in him.
