FOXBORO (CBS) – What is it about Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos that has captivated the nation?

Is it the old adage of the underdog, winning the big game? Or is it that the oh-so-clean-cut Tebow is winning, despite the naysayers?

In only his second year in the NFL, Tebow has taken the Broncos into the playoffs, and this Saturday they will face-off against the Patriots.

“He’s big, and strong,” says Vince Wilfork, the Patriots’ nose tackle.

Tebow was raised by parents who are missionaries, and he wears his faith on his sleeve for all to see.

But, in the Patriots’ Pro Shop Tuesday, fans were not worried that Tebow has the backing of a higher power.

“No…I pray for the Patriots,” said one female fan. Her husband stated flatly, “We beat them before with Tebow. We’ll beat them this Saturday.”

But one of the Patriots’ defensive backs, Devin McCourty, says Saturday night will be a test.

“He can run, and he can throw. He’s very dynamic,” said McCourty.
