The book of Revelations came to life on the field in Denver last night for Big Ben and the Steelers…
Tim Tebow finally flexed his left arm and found one more fantastic finish up his sleeve.
After Ben Roethlisberger rallied the Pittsburgh Steelers from a two-touchdown deficit, the Denver Broncos won the overtime coin toss, and on first down, Tebow tucked the ball in Willis McGahee’s belly like he’d done all afternoon.
The linebackers and safety Troy Polamalu all bit on the play-action fake, and Tebow hit wide receiver Demaryius Thomas for an electrifying 80-yard touchdown that stunned the Steelers 29-23 in the AFC wild-card game Sunday.
Thomas reached high to haul in Tebow’s pass, stiff-armed cornerback Ike Thomas and outraced backup safety Ryan Mundy to the end zone for Denver’s first playoff win in six years.
In 11 seconds – the shortest overtime in NFL history – Tebow showed he could be a conventional QB. It was also the longest overtime touchdown in playoff history.
“Case closed,” McGahee said. “They say he couldn’t throw. They said we wouldn’t be able to run the ball on them. We did that. I wonder what they’re going to say next week.”
The Broncos (9-8) will face the top-seeded New England Patriots (13-3) on Saturday night.
For those of you who want further proof that young Tim Tebow is touched by a higher power:
Tebow’s favorite Bible verse: John 3:16
Tebow’s passing yards: 316
Tebow’s avg. yards per pass: 31.6
Steelers Time Of Possession: 31 minutes and 6 seconds…
Here’s the cherry on top, Tebow threw the game-winning touchdown to wide-receiver Demaryius Thomas who was born when? On Christmas day 1987 of course…
Pretty scary right??
