08:09 AM ET 12.01 | The Broncos may dust off that passing game, after all. The Broncos have kicked the tires on their passing game here and there since unveiling the option to the NFL world a month ago. But this week at Minnesota, there will be at least some temptation to take Tim Tebow, the quarterback, out for a spin and see what happens. Philip Rivers threw for 335 yards on the Vikings' defense. Matt Stafford had 378, Matt Cassel 260, Jay Cutler 267, Aaron Rodgers 335 and Cam Newton 290. In all, the Vikings have seen opposing quarterbacks throw for 22 touchdown passes in 11 games. ... Heading into this week's games, no team in the league has surrendered more touchdown passes this season than Minnesota.

A man's got to know his limitations...

Pretty sure Tebow knows his...

IT"S TEBOW TIME (see what the kid can do passing with that great arm motion)

If it ain't broke, don't change it. How are the Vikings against the run? While Denver might be tempted to try to throw, they'd be smart just to keep doing what's been successful: run a lot, throw when it's sound strategy to do so, and let their defense smother the Viking's offense.

Would be nice to see Erick Decker grab a TD in his Minny homecoming

So? Denver isn't a big play offense, so if they throw TD passes it'll probably be from the red zone. And it'll probably be the option game that gets them there.

And... Denver's Defense will have far more to say about this one...

The Suh suspension appeal is this afternoon. I thought he got off easy. If The Commish cuts the suspension to one game or even drops it completely, it will show that he's got no business in that chair.

As long as we have to get a Tebow thread every day, I'm at least glad they've got a better picture.

Yup. Denver should worry about taking on big offenses like GB or NO. A low-scoring game with the Vikes is right in their wheel house.

I'd say that point has been proven many times already.

I thought Tebow was going to try professional bowling? It was in yesterdays headline on here, " Pro-Bowler " Jeesh! make up your mind.

December 1, 2011  09:28 AM ET

Cant Tebow just fly to the end zone?

I hope they give him another game for the appeal.
