Really Tebow?  One week after being deemed the worst QB in NFL he comes out and beats the division leading Raiders.  Not sure what to think of this guy.  I was on his band wagon at the beginning of the year, then hopped off, now I think I'm back on.  All I know for sure is he puts up good fantasy points more often than not so if you need a Fantasy QB he's your guy.  Lets compare some stats from last week compared to this week.

Last Week
Passing: 18/39 with 172 yards, 1 TD, 1 Int
Rushing: 10 Rushes for 63 yards and 3 fumbles.

This Week
Passing: 10/21 with 124 yards and 2 TDs, 0 Ints
Rushing: 12 Rushes for 118 yards, 0 TDs, 0 Fumbles

I think the moral of the story is keep the ball on the ground for the Broncos. He isn't going to hit a good percentage of his passes so keep them short and sweet. Limit his turnovers and you will be in every game.  The guy can make plays with his feet so why challenge his arm this early in the year if you don't need to?  He got over the miserable game like a man and put the Tebowing incident behind him.  The Broncos are sitting at 3-5 and every other team in the division is 4-4.  Could we really see Tebow in the playoffs?  Very doubtful, but at this point at least it's a question.  Who would have thought that after last week?
