If only Tim Tebow figures out a way to play like he does when a game is hanging on a thin line; if only Tim Tebow manages to be the quarterback he is in the fourth quarter, and make him play consistently throughout and entire game, the Denver Broncos would probably be as efficient as Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers. Then again, considering their most recent numbers, no other team is as close to perfection as the Packers than the Denver Broncos, and no other team is making it look so improbable as this guys are. Talk about winning ugly. Drop the ugly already. It’s not pretty, it’s not showy, but it certainly works. The Denver Broncos defeated the Chicago Bears 13-10 on Sunday in a thrilling come-from-behind effort that carried out into overtime.
Even Charles Barkley got involved in this one. He went on to call upon the Chicago Bears, pleading that they put an end to the Tebownian madness. It should had been simple: the Bears had the man force necessary to put an end to this almost miraculous comebacks that the Denver Broncos have been pulling off lately. They sure enough new that it was going to be in the last quarter when they needed to get their defense straight and avoid as many mistakes as possible, since it is in the last 5 minutes or so of the 4th quarter that Tim Tebow and the Broncos become an imminent threat. They knew exactly were the danger was coming from and they pretty much knew when it was going to come. And yet, they failed to keep Tebow from pulling of yet another comeback.
And that’s when the madness begins, that’s when the whole Tebownian miracle kicks in. The Broncos shouldn’t be 7-1 since Tim Tebow was placed at the helm. It’s just not logical for a quarterback that is simply among the league worst in the first three quarters, turns things around in the fourth quarter to be bested only by the likes of Tom Brady, Eli Manning and Drew Brees. Tebow couldn’t get it straight in the first three quarters. The squad was failing to score on their first dozen possessions, and Tebow’s passing was on the gutter. Still, the Broncos, who know have an 8-5 for the season, erased a 10-0 deficit in the final 2:08 of regulation, and managed to save the game in overtime with out of this world performances by the special teams.
But this time around, Tim Tebow is going to have to split some of the miracle credit with his teammate, Matt Prater. The Broncos special team’s place kicker connected a 51-yard field goal with after 6½ minutes of overtime play to give the Broncos a 13-10 lead over the Chicago Bears. But Prater’s performance wasn’t just responsible for the winning field goal. He actually completed a 59-yarder with 3 seconds left in regulation, enough to tie the score and but the Broncos enough time to get the victory in overtime. Of course it was Tebow who guided the comeback, but we have to give Prater some credit: Tebow didn’t have to push that hard in order to get his stellar kicker in range. Now, Tebow and the Broncos are going to have a though match ahead of them as they host Tom Brady and the New England Patriots.
