So much for crunch time being Tebow Time.
Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow self destructed in the fourth quarter in Buffalo today, as the Bills cruised to an easy win. Tebow had four interceptions, all in the final 16 minutes of the game, as the Bills rolled 40-14. Two of Tebow’s fourth-quarter interceptions were returned for touchdowns.
The loss prevents the Broncos from clinching the AFC West, and after the Raiders beat the Chiefs in overtime, it means the Raiders and Broncos are tied atop the division, with the Chargers potentially joining them in a three-way tie with a win today.
Tebow engineered two touchdown drives, one to start the game and one to start the second half, but other than that he was terrible. He finished 13-for-30 for 185 yards, with a touchdown and four interceptions.
For Buffalo, C.J. Spiller had a big day, with 111 yards on 16 carries. The Bills turned in their best overall team effort in months, winning for the first time since October 30.
The Broncos turned in one of their worst efforts since Tebow took over as the starting quarterback, and now they head into a must-win Week 17 game against their old friend Kyle Orton and the Chiefs.
