It was a forgettable performance a week after Tebow rallied the Broncos (2-5) from a 15-0 deficit in the final minutes in Miami for an improbable 18-15 overtime win.
Even in that game, Tebow struggled for the first 55 minutes before catching fire at the end. But he couldn't carry the momentum over to the field against the Lions (6-2).
