Denver Broncos (8-6) fans wanted Tim Tebow and in Week 5, they got him.
So did the rest of the nation.
Tebow entered the game for Kyle Orton and never looked back, even despite the loss to the San Diego Chargers that day. Tebow kept the starting job and despite his bad mechanics and lack of passing plays in the Broncos offense, he started to find a way to win—largely thanks to an emerging defense.
The next week, Tebow took down the Miami Dolphins in overtime. Then, after losing to the Detroit Lions, the Broncos started a seven-game win streak before finally losing to the New England Patriots in Week 15.
But they weren't just normal wins. The Broncos always found themselves trailing in the fourth quarter. But regardless of the time left on the clock, Tebow and running back Willis McGahee led the Broncos back to victory and eventually, into first place in the AFC West.
Tebow became an icon, the talk of the league and a very hot-button topic in the sports world. For seven straight weeks, the fourth quarter of every Broncos game became Tebow Time.
But now, after the Patriots have broken the streak, does Tebow still have what it takes to lead the Broncos? We'll just have to wait and see.
