For most of the game, it appeared Tebow’s first start of 2011 would give his detractors ammunition for a week of antiTim rhetoric. He looked lost at times,Arizona Cardinals Jerseys, turning his back to his receivers and fluttering passes all over the field. His legs saved him from trouble on a few occasions, but not enough to make up for erratic throws and panicked play. His team was equally inadequate, getting down 150 to the lowly Dolphins.
A win is far from validation; it took some loose Dolphins defense, great special teams play and a fortuitous fumble to get the Broncos the victory. The first 55 minutes were as telling as the final five minutes were promising. But Tebow saved himself from a week of doubting Thomases by keeping poised, operating the twominute offense and looking like his old college self on the sneak that tied the game. He’s now 10 on the season and has winnable games against the suddenly reeling Lions, the quarterbackchallenged Raiders and the struggling Chiefs.
tebow presswireFor 55 minutes of Sunday’s game, Tim Tebow was more dud than savior. His Denver Broncos were down 150 to the winless Miami Dolphins and the quarterback’s uneven play was a big reason why. And then he turned water into wine.
Then came the final two drives. Tebow was 913 for 122 yards with two touchdown passes and a key thirddown conversion on the ground. Once he connected with DeMaryius Thomas for the first touchdown, Denver recovered an onside kick and went on a twominute drive to score with 25 seconds left. Tebow’s subsequent twopoint conversion tied the game.
Facing a 15point deficit on the road with the ball on his own 20yard line, Tebow orchestrated a stunning fourthquarter comeback, capped by a twopoint conversion run with 0:25 on the clock that tied the game and forced overtime. In the extra session, Tebow and the Broncos were aided by a Dolphins fumble that set up a gamewinning 52yard field goal by Matt Prater.
Tebow did it again. Denver, rejoice.
