Winners win and Tim Tebow is a winner! His work ethic is through the roof, his humility is polarizing, and the buzz he’s creating is almost unparalled in sports.
His appeal is validated by the millions of people searching his name on google and mentioning him on twitter. Not thousands, millions! And that was just tonight. Even Lady Gaga got involved in the conversation after their big playoff win in Denver tonight. She tweets: “Giants fan but wow! Tebow, thats what the “expletive” a champion looks like.”
That’s because one of the most storied NFL playoff teams ran into a rejuvenated Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos.
Sorry, Pittsburgh Steelers, the magic is back!
Tebow connected with Demaryius Thomas on an electrifying 80-yard touchdown pass on the first play of overtime and the Broncos defeated the stunned Steelers 29-23 in the AFC wild-card game on Sunday. Wild doesn’t begin to describe it. The play took 11 seconds and was the quickest ending to an overtime in NFL history!
Tebow threw for a career-best 316 yards. Is it coincidence that his favorite verse scratched into his black eye paint was John 3:16? Crazy!? Get this, John 3:16 was the most Googled search term for much of Sunday evening and into Monday morning, as sports fans and non-sports fans alike tried to make sense of the statistical coincidences (and maybe brush up on the Bible). To make the point even further he set an NFL playoff record with 31.6 yards per completion. Tebow did his part with two passing touchdowns (with no interceptions), ran for 50 yards, had a touchdown and lead the Broncos to their first playoff victory in six seasons. To all the nay-sayers… he’s a winner!
