Many pundits argued that Denver would simply be overmatched by a superior Steelers team, that a team that backed into the playoffs with an 8-8 record and a three-game losing streak couldn't possibly beat a 12-4 Pittsburgh team led by two-time Super Bowl-winner Ben Roethlisberger.
It seems, however, that any time Tebow is involved, you can throw everything you think you know out the window.
This weekend was no exception. After blowing a 20-6 lead, Tebow got a chance at redemption in overtime and took advantage. He hit Demaryius Thomas on about a 20-yard slant play off a play-action and Thomas did the rest, outrunning two Steeler defenders for the last 60 yards and the game-winning touchdown.
It's Tebow Time in Denver, and the victory is worth celebrating, but Denver's toughest matchup awaits it in only six days.
