Sunday the playoffs will be on the line at Mile High, as John Fox and the Broncos will go into battle against the Kansas City Chiefs. In one of the most interesting storylines of the year, former Broncos starter at QB Kyle Orton will return to Denver to take on the player that ended up playing well enough to take his job – Tim Tebow.
The Broncos wonderkid, who has struggled in his last two games, both losses, has Denver in a position to make the postseason, and says that he’s pumped to get in front of the home crowd to try to get his teammates to the playoffs.
“(I’m) excited we get to play at home in front of our fans,” Tebow said. “I think that as a player, as a quarterback, as someone who has dreamed of that his whole life, it’ll be exciting to have one game, one last game, one last opportunity to make the playoffs … My confidence is just fine. I think that I have my confidence because I believe in the people around me.”
Tebow took a major step back Saturday as he threw four interceptions — including two that were brought back for scores in a span of 19 seconds — at Buffalo. Denver was also outplayed on defense and on special teams.
Can they turn it around this week against the Chiefs? If so, they earn a home playoff game against likely the Steelers or the Ravens next weekend. A loss, and it’s down to cheering for the Chargers to beat the Raiders so they can maintain the lead in the division and take home the AFC West title.
