It’s been a wild ride, but Tebow time may almost be over for the season.
I can’t remember a player ever inspiring more irrational analysis — good and bad — in the span of only two months. Tebow and the Broncos face their toughest test yet in the playoffs.
For a column on NBCSports.com, I look at why the Steelers present such a difficult matchup and how Tebow got this far. The Broncos say they will have to pass to win against Pittsburgh, but that’s not the best idea against the top pass defense in the league by far.
The Broncos didn’t get this far by sustaining offense. They got here with defense, turnovers, the No. 1 rushing game in the league, and waiting for fourth quarter for magic to happen.
That’s their best recipe for success on Sunday.
