New York Jets backup quarterback Tim Tebow can help in several ways this season. But one minor facet Tebow can contribute that shouldn't be overlooked is on two-point conversions.

Tebow is at his best using his legs, size and strength to plow through a defense. He averaged 5.4 yards per carry in 2011, which statistically makes it favorable for the Jets to use Tebow in two-point scenarios.

According to ESPN's Stats & Info, Tebow was 3-for-3 on two-point conversions during running plays last season with the Denver Broncos. Tebow ran it twice and successfully handed the ball off on another scoring play. The Broncos didn't use him enough with two-point conversions, but expect to see Tebow used more in Wildcat packages in this scenario.

Good two-point plays are often overlooked until teams really need them. Tebow's ability to get those tough yards is another underrated way he can contribute to the Jets next season.
