Easily one of the most improbable things to ever happen in the history of the NFL. Tim Tebow comes off the bench to take over a 1-5 team to the playoffs finishing the season 8-8.
In the 2011 Wildcard round as AFC West champions, the Broncos took on the 12-4 Steelers. Consistent scoring from Pittsburgh and a 20-point second quarter from Denver sent the game into overtime tied up at 23. The OT coin toss goes up and Denver takes the ball… 11 seconds later, they are heading to the divisional round. Take a look and relive the greatness:
Say what you will about Tebow, but this man was one of the best players under pressure that I have ever seen. Personally, I don’t think the Broncos should have ever cut him. Regardless, this is one memory that I will hold on to forever.
Weird how no one called for the overtime rules to be changed after this play. Maybe the Steelers actually can teach us all a lesson on how to lose with some dignity.
