There was a time when I thought the NFC South title would come down to the Dec. 26 game between the Falcons and Saints.

Head coach John Fox informed his team Tuesday morning that Tebow will be the starting quarterback in Week 7 for an Oct. 23 game at Miami, FOXSports.com has learned. The Broncos have a bye this week.
Without providing specifics, Morris all but listed McCoy as doubtful with a left ankle injury and Blount as questionable with a knee injury for Sunday’s game against the NFC South division leading New Orleans at Raymond James Stadium.
New Orleans is 4-1 alone atop the NFC South after rallying Sunday to beat the Carolina 30-27 with a 6-yard touchdown toss from Drew Brees to Pierre Thomas in the final minute. New Orleans’ only loss was a 42-34 setback on opening night to defending Super Bowl champion Green Bay, and that game ended with the Saints a yard away from a potential tying touchdown and 2-point conversion.
