ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - The Denver Broncos are living on the edge and loving it.
They've won six of seven games since Tim Tebow became their starting quarterback. Five of those have involved second-half comebacks, including a 35-32 win at Minnesota on Sunday that pushed them into a tie with Oakland atop the AFC West at 7-5.
The recipe for this remarkable resurgence is to hang around with a usually stellar defense and a ball-control, low-risk, no-frills offense, playing for field position. Until crunch time, that is, when Tebow takes over and either scrambles for a touchdown or sets up Matt Prater for a winning kick.
