Advantage | Tim Tebow
The guy just keeps on winning. Tim Tebow is 5-1 as a starter and hasn't thrown a pick since October. Caleb Hanie, meanwhile, has thrown plenty of them, six in three games to be exact.

Advantage | Willis McGahee
McGahee is coming off back-to-back 100-yard games and leads the league's best rushing attack. Barber is going to have to step in place for the injured Matt Forte in order to take some of the pressure of Caleb Hanie.

Advantage | Push
nWhen Tebow does throw the ball, he looks for Decker, who has eight touchdowns on the year. Knox is Hanie's go-to-guy. He's caught 9 passes for 198 yards and a touchdown in the last two games.

Advantage | Von Miller
nThe leading candidate for Defensive Rookie of the Year, Miller has been on a tear this season. He has 57 tackles, 10.5 sacks, two forced fumbles and he sat out last week.

Advantage | Julius Peppers
nIn a battle of tough defenses, Peppers may be the best player on the field. With eight sacks, he's been lights out. Dumervil, however, has 6.5 sacks during the Broncos' five-game win streak.

Advantage | Champ Bailey
nStill considered one of the best cornerbacks ever, Bailey has had a ho-hum year by his standards with two picks and 30 tackles. Tillman has been burned a couple of times this year, but look for him to be able to shut down the Broncos' receivers.

Advantage | Robbie Gould
nThis game could easily come down to a field goal and Gould has been solid all year. Prater hasn't made as many, but he's been clutch, delivering game-winners in consecutive weeks.
