Tebow Magic comes again as Broncos down Jets

What a win Broncos country, what a win.

I had a feeling all week that this game would be close and the Broncos would pull out a win and indeed it was.

The Denver Broncos defeated the New York Jets on Thursday night in mile high 17-13.

I for one, will call it Tebow Magic...yet again.

Tim Tebow capped the final Broncos drive, a 95-yard drive with a 20-yard touchdown run with 59 seconds left.

"He's just a competitive dude, super competitive," Broncos coach John Fox said. "He never lays his sword down. That's just his nature."

The Broncos, are now knocking on the door, at 5-5 overall and trailing the Oakland Raiders for a 1/2 game in the AFC West.

Denver should of started Tim Tebow from the start in my opinion, they would probably be the frontrunner in the division if they had.

The Broncos are now 4-1 with Tebow as the starting quarterback, with 3 consecutive victories.

"I like winning but I wish it wasn't quite that stressful," Tebow said.

Most of the game was back and forth grinding football, with the Broncos and Jets tied 3-3 at halftime.

However after a lackluster third quarter, in which Tebow went 1-for-8 passing. It was Tebow time and Tim Tebow looked magical in the fourth quarter in leading the Broncos to the victory.

Let's be thankful for this win Denver, as Thanksgiving has definitely come early for us Broncos fans.

I, myself, won't count Denver out in their next game against the San Diego Chargers on November 27th.

I think the Broncos have a legitimate chance at upsetting the Chargers.

Phillip Who? Chargers lose in lackluster effort to Chiefs

Phillip Who? Phillip What?

I sat there on Monday night in dismay, watching the San Diego Chargers struggle against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Although rattled by the Kansas City defense, the Chargers definitely had their chances, and albeit missed opportunities.

They could of even sealed the deal in the closing minutes of the fourth quarter, yet as with the whole night, the Chargers faltered.

With a minute remaining and the ball on the Chiefs 15, Phillip Rivers didn't get a hold of the snap and fumbled with the Chiefs recovering and forcing overtime.

The rest is history, as the Chiefs forced the Chargers to punt in overtime and then scored on the next possession to defeat the Chargers 23-20 in a sloppy outing for the Chargers in Kansas City.

From the onset, the Chargers looked out of sync, Rivers threw two interceptions in the first few minutes of the game.

The Chargers regrouped, but played for the field goal as the offense was out of sync for much of the game. Nick Novak of the Chargers was 4 of 5 on field goal attempts.

The Chargers-Chiefs are a big rivalry and the games have been close lately, as was the case when the Chargers beat the then winless Chiefs in San Diego earlier this season, 20-17.

I think the Chargers underestimated the Chiefs and didn't expect the attack the Chiefs would bring.

All in all, the Chargers did not play to their potential, although the Rivers fumble in the closing seconds of regulation was the main factor, the entire team was out of sync.

Although the Chargers out-gained the Chiefs 447 to 341 yards, they were plagued by many costly penalties, being penalized 12 times for 105 yards.

Rivers finished the game 26-of-41 for 369 yards and two interceptions.

Marty Schottenheimer was in attendance at the game. The former Chargers and Chiefs coach whom Chargers brass fired after a 14-2 season in 2006.

Marty Ball, how sweet that would be.
