Based on a recent report published by Reuters, Denver Broncos won a stunning overtime playoff contest during the Sunday game. Tim Tebow finally got his team’s and fans’ recognition after scoring an 80-yard touchdown in the overtime which enabled the Denver squad to defeat the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Tebow was often criticized by the supporters of the Broncos because his late evolution was not as good as everyone expected. As a matter of fact, the three dismal performances he had last season made his own team frown, not to mention supporters who asked the coach to remove him from formations. Moreover, Denver coach was determined to replace Tebow with quarterback Brady Quinn if the former did not show any improvements in the following games.
Tebow gave an 80-yard touchdown pass to his colleague Demaryius Thomas on the first play of overtime and he thus, managed to lead the Broncos to 29 points against the Pittsburgh Steelers. This is the first playoff that the Denver Broncos win since 2005.
Tim Tebow completed 10 out of 21 passes and threw for 316 yards and two touchdowns. Sports analysts like to think that the number of completed yards was predestined. Based on the previous declarations that the football player has made, his favorite verse from the Bible is John 3:16. In addition, the football player used to write the biblical verse under his eyes during every important game.
There were many other game moments that might be related to the John 3:16 verse. During an NFL postseason single-game, Tebow scored 31.6 yards per completion. Denver was also helped on Sunday by Ben Roethlisberger’s interception which came on 3rd and 16. 316.
While this explanation may be a little far-fetched, we think Denver coach John Fox is right in attributing the Sunday victory to a perfect timing between Tebow and Thomas. He also stated at the end of the show that the quarterback has made a lot of progress during the past few weeks and his performance was decisive against the Steelers. Judging by the coach’s declarations, we may infer that John Fox has forgotten about Tebow’s past mistakes.
