Colquitt pinning teams deep for Broncos

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - They say Tim Tebow makes everyone around him better. Nobody would agree more than a player who's never on the field with him.

That would be Broncos punter Britton Colquitt, who is making a Pro Bowl bid and helping spark a playoff push by putting the Broncos ahead in the field-position game that has become so vital to their success.

With a game against Chicago's dangerous returner Devin Hester coming up, Colquitt is ranked third in the league in the all-important category of net yardage (41.3) and fourth in placing kicks inside the 20 (23). One notable byproduct of all these stats: Broncos opponents have started nine more drives inside their own 20 than the Broncos have.
