Tim Tebow Vs. The New York Jets Defense: NFP's Matt Bowen Breaks It Down

We have already spent time this week trying to figure out how the New York Jets will handle the unique -- at least in the NFL -- offense deployed by Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos. The real question, though, might be the reverse one. How will the Broncos' 'read-option' run-heavy offense fare against a Jets defense superior to the Oakland and Kansas city groups Denver defeated the past two weeks?

Matt Bowen of the National Football Post, a former NFL defensive back, delved into that topic this week

Bowen has three primary questions:

 

  1. Will Denver open up and pass more than eight times?
  2. Will the Broncos be able to handle the blitz packages deployed by the Jets?
  3. Can the Broncos create any big plays?

Bowen is probably right that tonight's Thursday Night Football matchup (8:20 p.m. ET, NFL Network) will teach us more about the Broncos than it will about the Jets.
