Through one half, Team Tebow stays within one score of Vikings

AP

Broncos games are interesting only if Denver remains within one score late in the contest.  Through the first two quarters, mission accomplished.

The Vikings lead Team Tebow, 15-7.

It could be worse, but the Vikings have squandered opportunities.  A certain score resulted in seven points after a Christian Ponder fumble was returned to midfield.  Then, a Ponder interception was returned for a touchdown.

Near the end of the half, Tebow experienced a lapse in his ordinarily strong ball security, losing control of the ball while being sacked by Jared Allen.  The Vikings converted the late gaffe into another three points.

In the end, the question is whether the game will be close in the end.  The challenge for the Broncos in the third quarter will be to keep it within eight points in the fourth quarter.

  1. I sincerely hope you’re referring to “Team Tebow” tongue-in-cheek. The only reason the Broncos are on the board is their defense. Calling them Team Tebow is certainly an insult to the Broncos’ D.

    That said, my Raiders forgot how to play football, and with Denver’s knack for coming back, the AFC West is about to be a LOT tighter.

  2. I love the gritty way the broncos have been winning lately, but they’ve been lucky that being so conservative hasn’t bitten them yet. They gotta open it up some.

    Tebow has been throwing ok, they need to take a few shots.

  3. On the last play of the half for the Vikings, they take Harvin and Rudolph off the field. Way to fool them Leslie! #imisschildress

  4. Tebow is just soooo bad.. Maybe Christian Ponder should start turning whatever faith he has into publicity as well, and then he’ll get some press.

  5. Ponder started out terribly, making some really bad throws but has found his groove finally. Doesn’t help that offensive line lets him get beaten to a pulp.

    Both Defences have played lights out. Outside of the long scoring drive Ponder engineered.

    Now that I just wrote this, Cedric Griffin the worst corner ever just gave up a TD. When are the Vikings going to dump him. He is terrible and has been terrible since he came into the league. I’d love to know how many TDs he has given up in his career.

  6. Teblow’s career arc is (already) on the downswing. He’s had his moments where he caught the league off guard. Don’t expect anymore of that. Unless he can adapt and become an NFL QB (which he can’t) he’s through.
    Truly I think he might be able to play a couple years in Canada and almost certainly in the Arena league but to expect him to have any further success in the NFL is cruel and unfair to him and to his fans.

  7. “Whoever believes in Me and sends offerings to my Temple, can worship at my altar.” 1 Tebone 16:25.
