Green Bay — Tim Tebow is about trying to spark the Broncos’ disappointing run game.

Whether he’s used as a quarterback in the “Wild Horse” or running back, Tebow’s role today will not take quarterback Kyle Orton off the field.

Despite a greater commitment to the run this season, the Broncos rank 28th in the NFL with just 76.0 rushing yards per game. They are averaging just 3.2 yards per carry. The Green Bay defense, meanwhile, ranks No. 1 against the run, allowing just 55.0 rushing per game.

Despite this mismatch, the Broncos have to run, anyway, if they are to minimimize the possessions of Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who is arguably the league’s best. Thus, the ”Tebow Package.”
