Broncos second-year quarterback Tim Tebow had a rough game last Saturday in Buffalo.  In fact, Tebow probably wishes the game had never happened.

According to the NFL statisticians, one of Tebow’s four interceptions on Sunday never happened.  Rather, the play has correctly been ruled a fumble, per Mike Klis of the Denver Post.

Tebow was whacked from behind on the arm by Bills linebacker Chris Kelsay. The ball popped straight in the air and was nabbed by Spencer Larsen (sic) who ran it in for a touchdown.

After further review, the NFL stat men ruled the play should have been ruled a fumble.

When Klis refers to Broncos fullback Spencer Larsen, he was attempting to write Spencer Johnson — it’s a relief that I’m not the only one typo-infested writer covering the Broncos.  Tebow now has 12 passing touchdowns on the season against five interceptions and a passer rating of 77.9.

Meanwhile, the Broncos held their last full-padded regular season practice on Wednesday.  Safety Brian Dawkins was held out of practice with a lingering neck injury, Quinton Carter full participated while fellow defensive backs David Bruton and Chris Harris were limited.
