Although he only accounted for 5 of the Broncos 442 total yards of offense in Sunday’s 49-29 thumping of the Kansas City Chiefs, Rookie Quarterback Tim Tebow is one of the finalists for the Pepsi Rookie Of The Week award on NFL.com.
Rushing twice and throwing once, Tebow scored twice in three plays – talk about efficiency! Though his first score, a one-yard touchdown run, made the score 28-0 in the second quarter and seemingly put the game away, it was his second touchdown that we had all been waiting to see. A pass. It was beautifully designed play where Tebow acted as if he was going to run, then stopped and threw a 3-yard strike to Fullback Spencer Larsen.
His first pass in the NFL was completed, and went for a Touchdown. Giving Tebow a 118.8 Quarterback Rating.
