Denver Broncos power rankings from around the web. Two in a row, baby. Through hell, high water, or 2-of-8 passing, the Broncos are relevant again… or are they? (Previous week’s ranking in parenthesis)

Really, NFL? If you’re going to call the team Tebow, you might as well rename the league while you’re at it. Here’s how the Broncos fare in the Tebow Power Rankings elsewhere, folks.

We have to credit the Broncos for finding a way to win with Tim Tebow, even if it sets back the modern game. (Kuharsky)

Tim Tebow’s passer rating of 102.6 on Sunday is exactly why that stat is useless. Yes, this is a guy that has thrown 7 TDs compared to just one interception, but face it, this is a running back playing the quarterback position. Tebow has faced one good team during his tenure as starter, and that ended as a 35-point loss to the Lions. This week against the Jets will be similar.
