The visitors tend to win ugly, but the home team has been downright ugly all year. However unpleasant in appearance at times, the Titans were most impressive in Week 2 with a 26-13 home victory over Baltimore. The rest of the time, well, they got blown out by Pittsburgh and Houston, almost beat New Orleans last Sunday (nice no calls on the final play when Saints defenders were knocking two Titans to the ground in the end zone), and they have a lot of ho-hum wins over lousy teams. Or in fairness to Denver, a 17-14 loser at Nashville, Tenn., in Week 3, those were the Kyle Orton Broncos, not the Tim Tebow Broncos. So the Titans have played their share of tight games and are still in the AFC playoff hunt for a wild-card spot. The Colts, at 0-13 and counting the days until the end of the season, have been outmanned and outplayed the past two weeks on the road at New England and Baltimore. That's what happens to bad teams when they play away from home against AFC playoff teams.

In case you haven’t seen it every 10 minutes on ESPN’s First Take, here’s a relentlessly annoying video (unless you love to here Skip Bayless slurp on Tim Tebow) put together by DJ Steve Porter. You may remember Porter from the much better Decision remix.
You won’t be able to get Skip’s whinny voice proclaiming, “Unleash!” out of your head for the rest of the day....
GREEN BAY, Wis. The quarterback who stands in the way of the Green Bay Packers improving to 14-0 is new Kansas City Chiefs starter, Kyle Orton. This is the same Orton who led his Denver Broncos into Lambeau Field in Week 4, only to lose, 49-23, and eventually get released by the team in favor of a former Heisman Trophy winner who has a knack for miraculous comebacks.So if the Packers...
As Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow continues to take the NFL by storm this season, he’s slowly changed the minds of many of his naysayers. ESPN NFL analyst Ron Jaworski was a guest on Mike and Mike in the Morning on ESPN Radio on Friday. Jaworski was asked by co-host Mike Golic if Tebow should [...]
It has been a hectic, Tim Tebow-filled week in Patriots land. Sure, sure, we discussed other things, but no one dominated the discussion like the Broncos quarterback. Before we ship out to Denver to get ready for Sunday’s matchup, colleague Karen Guregian and I broke down the week that was in our weekly video. Here it is, as edited by Bob Greim:
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Romeo Crennel stepped to the podium inside the Chiefs' practice facility, gripping both sides of it with his meaty hands, and promptly named Kyle Orton is starting quarterback.
Let the changes in Kansas City begin.
In just a shade over 48 hours since he was appointed the interim coach in place of the fired Todd Haley, Crennel has already put his stamp...

It’s finally here. The Patriots trip to Denver comes in just two days and that means it’s time for them to get their taste of TEBOWMANIA! The Broncos QB is Tim Tebow, in case you haven’t heard of him, and at last look, he’s 7-1 as a starter, has his team in first place in its division and primed for the post-season and is able to leap...
The Tim Tebow show has arrived for Patriots fans. Cam Newton is having a great rookie season, much better than Tebow’s sophomore campaign. However, the difference is Denver has a very good defense compared to Carolina’s sorry bunch. The Broncos have two great edge rushers in Von Miller and Elvis Dumervil.
Though he’s getting up there in age, Champ Bailey still shuts down...
