Tim Tebow led the Denver comeback.
It is straight out of Hollywood.
A young quarterback, making his first start of the season, goes back to the state where he had won a National Championship in college.
He gets behind by 15 points, leads a fourth-quarter comeback, and wins in overtime.
It's just a day in the life of Tim Tebow.
For all those who said he would fail, most of the day they looked to be right. Tebow was less than 50 percent, passing (13 of 27), and he was sacked seven times.
When the Broncos got the ball at their own 20 with 5:23 remaining they trailed 15-0. They had gained only 158 total yards at that point. It looked like they were about to lose to the winless Dolphins.
Then Tebow and the Broncos took off going 80 yards in eight plays for a touchdown.
They recovered an onside kick, then Tebow led a 10-play, 56-yard drive for another touchdown. There were 17 seconds left. Tebow ran himself for the two point conversion to tie the game and send it to overtime.
The Denver defense won it by recovering a Dolphin fumble at the Miami 36. Two plays later, Matt Prater kicked a 52-yard field goal for an 18-15 win.
What Tebow may lack in fundamentals, he makes up with effort.
