Tim Tebow may one day go down in history as the most celebrated punt protector ever. But really, how many punt protectors can you name?
The Jets lined up in punt formation on fourth and 11 with two minutes left in the first half when the snap came to Tebow. The Jets' backup quarterback used his patented "jump pass" to convert the fourth down situation for 23-yard gain.
Tebow may be a distraction and he may put unneeded pressure on Mark Sanchez, but he is very valuable on fake punts. If only the Colts had been smart enough to sniff it out and cover fullback Nick Bellore. The converted fake punt led to a Jets touchdown. New York went on to win the game 35-9.
