ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- Bury the blueprints on how to counter Tim Tebow. He can beat you with his arm as well as his legs.

The formula up until last weekend was to stack the box and dare him to beat you with his erratic left arm.

Coming off his worst game as a pro, the most maligned quarterback in football did just that in snapping a three-game skid and sending the mighty Pittsburgh Steelers to an early playoff exit Sunday.

Tebow, whose record-setting redemption kept the Denver Broncos' thrilling roller coaster of a season roaring right along, is more challenging than ever to defend.

So, the top-seeded New England Patriots (13-3) are preparing for his deep passes as much as the Broncos' bothersome read-option offense.
