Tebow, Broncomania Sweeping Colorado

After starting the season 1-4, the Denver Broncos have won 7 of their last 8 games since installing Tebow as the starting Quarterback.

NFL analysts are predicting Sunday’s New England Patriots/Denver Broncos game will be the most-watched game of the year next to the Superbowl.  The Broncos have won six straight under quarterback Tim Tebow, with many of the games electrifying, come-from behind victories. Tebow ignites passions among fans for his impressive rushing and leadership poise. He’s also drawn attention for his very public display of his Christian faith.  But in Denver, where Broncos fans have endured a long drought since the “Mile High Magic” era of quarterback John Elway, “Tebow Mania” is at an all time high.
