Von Miller is making a case for Defensive Player of the Year, let alone Rookie of the Year. Let’s face it, Tim Tebow has been a fun story, but it is this defense that is really winning them games. In the last three games, Tebow and the Broncos have averaged just 16 points, with a high of 17 points, and that won’t win many games in the NFL.

How long can the Tebow magic continue? It sure has to be fun for Broncos fans as long as it does.
