I'm curious how much of it is a shift in defensive strategy and how much is a shift in offensive strategy. The Jets, for example, actually got more aggressive in the final drive where Tebow went 90+ yards. Most of the teams don't appear to be laying back in a prevent defense.

I enjoy Tebow as a person, but if he continues this success for a statistically significant sample size, he'll destroy a lot of my core sports beliefs.
