Tebow Leads Comeback as Broncos Defeat Jets 17-13
Tim Tebow has done it again! He engineered a 95-yard game-winning touchdown drive as the Denver Broncos defeated the New York Jets 17-13 sending the Jets into a tailspin.
The New York Jets, coming from the tough loss to the New England Patriots, fall to the Broncos on the short week. The Jets only had three days to prepare for the Broncos and it appeared it didn’t give the Jets enough time to solve Tim Tebow’s 4th quarter comeback.
Tebow led his team down the field for 95 yards into the endzone. The drive was highlighted by Tebow’s 20 yard touchdown run. Tebow finished the game going only 9/20 with 104 yards but rushed the ball 8 times for 68 yards with the touchdown. He was the team’s leading rusher.
As for the Jets, this was certainly a devastating loss and drops the team to 5-5 on the season. Sanchez was 24/40 for 252 yards but also threw a critical interception, which turned into a pick-6. Shonn Greene was injured during the game, so Joey McKnight took the vast majority of the carries in the second half. McKnight carried the ball 16 times for 59 yards. McKnight also caught 6 passes for 62 yards.
Head Coach Rex Ryan was certainly not happy about the result of this game.
It’s tough to stop 11 on 11 football like that. We gave up the big play at the end of the game. Tebow made the play, have to give him credit. I know I sound like a broken record, we made too many mistakes, turned the ball over on special teams, threw the interception for the touchdown, and have a critical error on defense. We have to find a way to get better. -Head Coach Rex Ryan-
