Despite promising to play their best in an attempt to win, Tim Tebow's upcoming opponents on the Patriots, Bills and Chiefs say they are pretty excited to see how the NFL phenomenon defeats them.
"Look, we're more talented than the Broncos at most positions, especially on the offensive side of the ball," said Patriots head coach Bill Belichick. "On paper, we should defeat them pretty easily. Yet at the same time, we know that no matter what we do, Tebow will still beat us somehow at the end of the game. I can't wait to see how. It's going to be very entertaining. And I have a front row seat."
Patriots quarterback Tom Brady says the team has been working in hard in hopes of taking a huge early lead on Denver.
"We're entering this game with the mindset of how we played every opponent in 2007 when we were going for 19-0," said Brady. "We want to blow them out and never take our foot of the gas. If we can be up 40 going into the fourth quarter, I'm confident Tim Tebow will deliver a comeback that will be talked about for centuries. It will be an honor to have been the quarterback he defeated in the biggest comeback in football history. I'm pumped. I've never been so excited for a game in my life."
Tebow admits that with each comeback, he becomes more and more relaxed in the first three quarters.
"I try to do my best on every play of the game, but – yeah, there's a sort of procrastinator's mentality that's starting to set in," he said. "Could I play better at the beginning of games? I mean, I don't see why not. But it's a lot more fun to just kind of cram all of my good plays into the last two minutes."
While the 10-3 Patriots look forward to seeing how Tebow will beat them in the fourth quarter, the 5-8 Bills and Chiefs are also intrigued.
"I can't imagine any player being so bad that he has to pull something out of his ass to beat us in the final minutes," said Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick. "We've lost 6 game in a row. If he's not up 30 points on us by the fourth quarter, he really should be kicked out of the NFL. So, yeah, I'm excited to see him play. If he somehow needs a miracle to beat us, the Bills — the Buffalo Bills — it will be the most amazing game in NFL history. And the saddest game in NFL history."
