Patriots linebacker Rob Ninkovich says his defense can control Tim Tebow by keeping him in the pocket.

That won't be easy when New England faces the Broncos scrambling quarterback on Sunday in Denver. Tebow has led the Broncos to a 6-1 record in his seven starts, making many big throws while on the run and pulling out games in the waning moments.

Ninkovich says the Patriots must prepare like they do every other week by knowing the opposing quarterback's strengths and weaknesses. But he admitted that Tebow has a skill set that not many quarterbacks have.

He also said the Patriots could assign one player to spy on Tebow, go wherever he goes and make sure that player tackles Tebow when he has a chance.
