Still, Tebow has been able to do what Newton hasn't -- win games late.
The Panthers have led in 12 of 13 games this year, but have lost six contests when they've led in the fourth quarter. On the other hand, Tebow has five game-winning drives in the fourth quarter this year and six for his career.
In Denver, the fourth quarter has become known as "Tebow Time."
Panthers center Ryan Kalil said he doesn't see too many similarities between the two quarterbacks.
"They are two different players," Kalil said. "I don't know much about Tebow other than the highlights, but I think they're different. If I had to choose one it would be my guy. Everyone keeps tagging this thing that he's a winner, but it's not one man, it's a football team. I think they're playing good as a football team."
Kalil said Newton is a once-in-a-lifetime quarterback.
"I do," Kalil said. "He's young and he has a lot of room to grow. I think he's already shown he's pretty darn phenomenal."
