Tebow Time Ticks Past Pittsburgh 29 - 23

From running the option in the NFL to winning games in the last few minutes on a regular basis, the Denver Broncos never do things in an orthoxdox manner. This wildcard Sunday was no exception. With just one throw, the Denver Broncos defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers in overtime to send them home for the year…

The Steelers were beaten up coming into this game. Large Benjamin was hobbled and looked uncomfortable at times and the Dick Lebeau defense was unstable and disorganized. Despite the slow start, Denver marched back in the second quarter and dominated the Steelers to go up 20 – 6. Things slowed down for them in the second half as they were outscored 17 – 3, allowing Pittsburgh to get back within striking distance. Ben Roethlisberger was given a chance to win the game with under two minutes left and two timeouts but Denver’s defense came up big with two sacks from Von Miller and Elvis Dumervil. The game was then sent into overtime where the fuse on Pittsburgh’s season was lit.

Today marked the first day the NFL’s new overtime rules were used since they changed the rules 20 months ago. The new rule states that each team will be guaranteed a possesion unless team A scores a touchdown. This means that a team can no longer win by kicking a field goal on their first possesion. However, no field goals were needed in this game as one strike from Tim Tebow to Demaryius Thomas ended the game on a 80 yard TD reception. And with that one play, every Ravens fan in the nation rejoiced as their hated rival was out of the playoffs.
