Just as it appeared all was lost, as it seemed the Broncos would blow a 14-point halftime lead, Tebow delivered.They were playing one of the top defenses in the league in a big time game, and he passed for two touch downs, with no interceptions. My favorite was his scramble from the twenty into the end zone. The guy doesn't shy away from a pile-up at the goal line. In the overtime it is no longer sudden death due to the wealth of kickers that can hit a field goal from 50, so each side gets a possession as long as the teams are scoring field goals. However, if one side were to score a touchdown, then that's the ball game.
The lefty winged a game-winning, 80-yard touchdown pass to the remarkably gifted Demaryius Thomas on the first play of overtime to give the Broncos a stunning, 29-23 AFC playoff win against the heavily favored Pittsburgh Steelers.
TebowMania is once again fully inflated.
Steelers called the flip, Broncos won the toss and took the ball. First play from scrimmage the Broncos motion the right wideout into the formation for a typical run shift, ball is snapped, Demaryius Thomas runs a slant and ... bang ... the ball is delivered on a line. DT runs it to the end zone. Game over.
And 316 yards?! What was that?!! Didn't he have some verse he kept noting on his eye black? Something from the Book of John, was it? Oh yes, what a shocking thing to do.
I'll tell you what amazes me about Tim Tebow, is that it still doesn't seem to phase him. God bless him, but it is a tough environment he is living in. The guy is one tough hombre. Nice guy, but don't doubt me. The guy is tough.
And how does he end it? Bill Maher little buddy, you better turn away your itty bitty eyes:
