Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos are Mile High Miracle Men. There’s no other explanation.
It’s becoming textbook, an expectation, the rule, not the exception. Again, three and a half quarters of offensive ineptitude were wiped away as Tebow and the Broncos did just enough to come away with a win.
They were down 10-0 late in the fourth quarter before Tebow and company went to work again.
And it’s not just Tebow. It’s the entire Broncos team. The defense comes up with a big play (Wesley Woodyard fumble in overtime). The special teams plays out of its mind (59- and 51- yard field goals from Matt Prater to tie and win the game, respectively).
It’s Demaryius Thomas dropping passes through three quarters then coming up with drive-extending clutch catches in the fourth quarter. It’s Matt Prater’s field goal getting blocked from 28 yards at the end of the first half before nailing two field goals from half a football field away. It’s the defense being tired and not forcing a turnover through four quarters then coming away with a fumble recovery in overtime.
Tebow had a passer rating of 6 (yes, six) at one point late in the first half. He finished with a season high in passing yards.
The Denver Broncos are 8-5 and in sole possession of the AFC West because they believe that, no matter the score, no matter the time remaining on the clock, they can win the game. And Tim Tebow is the reason the other 52 men on the team believe that.
