Who'll be No. 2 against the Jags

"We're not going to name (the No. 2 QB) right now," McDaniels said during his press conference this morning. "We got three that we like and ... (Tebow and Quinn) are going to compete and we'll try to make the decision that we feel is best on game day for our team, based on how we're going to play the game."

Tebow was Denver's fifth-leading rusher with 31 yards, and he tied for the team lead in yards-per-carry (5.2).

"There's a lot of factors that will go into that," McDaniels said of choosing Orton's backup. "How they practice and how things look during the week will probably play a large role in determining who we name as the No. 2."

McDaniels said playing in Tebow's hometown won't be one of those factors, but if Tebow does win the job, the coach said: "I'll be happy for him; he'll probably ask for more tickets."

Quinn completed 57.1 percent of his passes for 334 yards and one touchdown, with a preseason rating of 73.1. Tebow threw for 344 yards, with two touchdowns, a completion rate of 64.1 and a rating of 88.0.
