Tim Tebow, Dolphins halftime update

MIAMI -- The Miami Dolphins lead the Denver Broncos, 6-0, at halftime.

Here are some notes at intermission:

  • The Tim Tebow era is off to a slow start. Tebow got the loudest ovation from the crowd but hasn't done much for the Broncos in the first half. Denver is doing a lot of running and safe passes to protect Tebow. He nearly threw two interceptions in the first half that were dropped by Miami's defense. The Broncos seem unsure with what they are trying to accomplish offensively. Tebow has to play better in the second half for the Broncos to win. He is 3-of-5 passing for 24 yards. Tebow also has 40 rushing yards and a fumble that was recovered by Denver.

  • So far the game looks like two teams with a combined 1-9 record. There are a lot of mistakes being made on both sides. In the first half we've seen two missed field goals, several dropped passes and poor execution overall. The team that cleans up its play in the second half will get the win.

  • Miami started the game in a no-huddle. It was an attempt to spark the struggling offense, but it didn't work. The Dolphins entered the game as the NFL's worst team on third down. They were 0-of-5 on third down in the first half.
