Tim Tebow isn't looking at Sunday's win-and-in game against the Kansas City Chiefs as pressure.

The Denver Broncos quarterback is excited about playing the Chiefs on Sunday with the AFC West Division title on the line. Denver can still make the playoffs with a loss, but would need the Oakland Raiders to lose to the San Diego Chargers in that scenario.

"I think it's exciting," Tebow told the Denver Post. "We're a very motivated team. "We had a good practice today. We're going to be extremely focused (for Sunday).

"It's what you play for. This is like another playoff game for us. We're excited about it. We're motivated. And I believe we'll go out there and leave everything on the field."

Awaiting the 8-7 Broncos will be Kyle Orton, the man who began the year as Denver's starter, but was waived and picked up by Kansas City, and is now starting for the Chiefs.

"I'm happy for him that he has another opportunity. And I'm glad that he's playing and doing well. I wish him nothing but the best — but maybe not too good on Sunday," Tebow said of Orton.
