AHHHH my team has been so consistent all year ending 9-4 in head to head league and accumulated the most overall points with Newton at the helm. My gut is telling me to start Tebow this week over Newton, for a few reasons. Newton has Houston who has a stout rush and pass defense and I can see this game being rather close, with a lot of rushing attempts by both teams, limiting his passing numbers. Tebow faces the worst pass defense in the league and an average at best rush D IMO. Denvers D is good but I can't see them shutting down the Pats offense for 4 quarters, meaning Tebow will be on the field often, and throwing more then usual. Should I roll with faith and ride the Tebow train or stick with old reliable Newton who got me to this point?

Personally, as much as I like Tebow in the match-up vs NE, I would lean to Newton.  Tebow has higher upside, but also lower downside in that offense.  Newton can get some cheap points in the red zone as he is the top option  for fantasy points with his feet or in the air. 

There is nothing worse that losing in the playoffs with one of your bench guys.  My rule has always been to go with the guys that got you there.

I agree with you on going with the guys that got you there. I just have a weird feeling about Tebow this weekend. Every week its something new. I agree that there is more of a gamble with Tebow but I see that game being  in the mid 20's. Its gonna be a last minute decision

Gotta go newton... Hes a freak who has potential to win you a game single handedly.... I think houston will play soft after clinching their division last week also.... Good luck..
