ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - The NFL has caught Tim Tebow fever, too.
The cover of the inaugural edition of the league's official monthly publication, NFL Magazine, which hits newsstands Dec. 13, will feature Tebow instead of Carolina rookie quarterback Cam Newton as originally planned.
The edition will still feature Newton, just not on the cover.
The NFL magazine announced last month that Newton would adorn the cover of its first edition. But that plan quickly changed when Tebow became the talk of the league after supplanting Kyle Orton and winning five of six starts to help the Denver Broncos (6-5) get back in the AFC West race.
