Where did the Broncos rush the ball?
|Left End.||Left Tackle||Left Guard||Up the Middle||Right Guard||Right Tackle||Right End|
- The Broncos concentrated most of their runs directly at the middle of the formation, which keeps with last week’s trend.
- Denver uses J.Johnson and D.Thomas to try and get outside the Bears defense.
- The Bears do a good job at containing Tebow and not letting the Broncos get to the perimeter of their defense.
- The Broncos got their best production from running at the tackles this week. That higher average is due to two big runs in those areas.

- This week, Tebow goes 4 for 9 (44%) when throwing the ball deep. That is not that bad.
- Tebow’s short game needs improvement, however. He only completed 58% of his passes to the short left side of the field. Most teams are at least getting in the mid 60s and the better teams are getting in the 70s.
- Tebow is 5 for 10 to the short right side of the field.
