Patriots Move to 10-3, Face Denver Tebow's Next Week

Tim Tebow is 7-1 as a starter this season and has helped lead the Broncos into first place in the AFC West.  The Broncos defense is tough, they run the ball, and they find miraculous ways to win every week with Tebow at quarterback.

That said, the Patriots are going into Denver next Sunday with their weak defense and beating the Broncos.

Why?  Tom Brady and Bill Belichick. 

Together they have posted a regular season record of 121-35, a playoff record of 14-5, and have accumulated three Lombardi Trophies.  Brady is the greatest quarterback of his generation and as exciting as Tebow has been over the last two months, he is not on that level and probably never will be.

I'm not hating on Tebow.  What he has done with the Broncos this season - taking a mediocre team and breathing enough life into them to make them psuedo contenders in the AFC - has been a lot of fun to watch.  There is no denying that Tebow is fun to watch and this has been one of the best stories in the NFL this year.

The fact is that despite having a terrible defense on his side, an inconsistent running game, and a banged up offensive line, Brady is going to go into Denver a week from today and win as the Patriots quarterback for the 136th time in his career.

There is nothing Tim Tebow can do to stop that from happening.
