On Monday, Broncos Interim Head Coach Eric Studesville announced that Tim Tebow will be the starting Quarterback against the Houston Texans on Sunday.
The Broncos are looking to snap a five game losing streak, playing at home for the first time in four weeks. Last week in Oakland, Tebow debuted against the Raiders and played well, all things considered. The former Gator went 8-of-16 for 138 passing yards and added 78 rushing yards, scoring twice and putting his name in the record books.
“I thought Tim played well in his first start in a difficult environment, being in there with those fans when they started getting cranked up,” said coach Studesville. “I thought he really managed everything well — the environment, our game plan, got us in and out of the things that we needed to and just ran our offense well.”
Studesville went on to note that Kyle Orton‘s rib injury did play a part in the decision to start Tebow, and that the team is developing a game plan geared toward Tebow’s strengths. Meaning we’ll probably see some more QB keepers and draws this Sunday, giving Tebow the chance to do what he did best while at Florida.
It is also likely that Tebow will get more chances to throw this week, as running back Knowshon Moreno may not be 100%, and Denver’s rushing attack suffered mightily without him last week.
Sunday’s game starts at 2:05 (MTD) and will be broadcasted on CBS.
