Then there is Tebow. Tim Tebow was already showing signs of this being different. He and his wind up had completed passes all day. The Broncos built a lead. Pittsburgh, being a good team, even when down many men, came back with two TDs in the last 10 minutes or so to tie the game and send it into overtime.
Which lasted exactly one play. Tebow throws a 20 yard pass Thomas runs 60 more and Denver wins 29-23. Amazing. The Broncos' reward? Tom Brady and the Patriots in Foxboro.
