The Broncos are in second place in the AFC West, all praises due to...OK, no Jesus jokes. Somehow Tim Tebow is willing his team to victory occasionally using his arm -- instead the read option that was seen as impossible to run in the NFL has scorched teams, most recently the tough Jets defense. Maybe this week the Chargers will have enough film to stop the option, but with Tebow under center it's hard to count him out. —Nick Restivo
