The toughest test

Not just Tebow, the Patriots are the Broncos’ toughest test yet
Denver’s dominant defense, which has two hiccups – against the multifaceted Lions and Packers – will face another formidable challenge in the Patriots, led by Tom Brady, who’s thrown for 33 touchdown passes, 15 of them to big tight end Rob Gronkowski (pictured).
With Tom Brady and the powerful New England Patriots (10-3) coming to town Sunday, the Broncos (8-5) see this as a chance to prove they’re not just a curiosity but a contender.
The Broncos are 7-1 since Tim Tebow took over and started engineering a series of outrageous second-half comebacks. Those opponents, though, have a combined record of 39-52. The Patriots, this week’s opponent, are 10-3.

N.Y. high school twins flagged for Tebowing

GARDEN CITY, N.Y. – Two New York high school athletes have been flagged for organizing several “kneel-downs” in tribute to Tim Tebow.
The mother of 17-year-old twins Connor and Tyler Carroll said they are impressed with the Denver Broncos quarterback. Tebow has led Denver to a 7-1 record and is a devout Christian known for kneeling in prayer on the gridiron.
The twins play baseball and football for Riverhead High School on Long Island. Sherry Carroll, the twins’ mom, said they had no religious intentions when they organized the kneel-downs this week.
About 40 students participated in the largest act of “Tebowing” on Wednesday.
District Superintendent Nancy Carney said the tribute posed a safety hazard by blocking others from getting to class.
Sherry Carroll said Connor served an in-school suspension Friday; Tyler will serve his punishment Monday.

Tim Tebow on the two 17-year-old boys in New York who were suspended for organizing “Tebowing” kneel-downs at their high school, where the superintendent said the tribute posed a safety hazard by blocking others from getting to class: “You have to respect the position of authority and people that God’s put as authority over you, so that’s part of it, and just finding the right place and the right time to do things is part of it, too. But I think it does show courage from the kids standing out and doing that – and some boldness.”
