Tim Tebow Leads Broncos to Another Inspiring Comeback

Posted on December 12, 2011 by Kyle Green

Tim Tebow led another fourth quarter comeback to put the Denver Broncos in first place in the AFC West.

Tim Tebow again took all the plaudits as the Denver Broncos took control of the AFC West with a 13-10 overtime victory over the Chicago Bears.

The Broncos had been shut out for almost 58 minutes by the Bears and were down two scores as the two-minute warning approached. But Tebow somehow inspired Denver to come back from 10-0 down before they won it in overtime. Those following the NFL betting online will have been astonished.

Matt Prater kicked a 59-yard field goal with three seconds left in regulation to tie the scores up at 10-10 and then converted from 51 yards in overtime to win it.

The victory leaves the Broncos with an 8-5 record and left cornerback Champ Bailey to say of Tebow: “He comes through at crunch time every week. Every single week it’s like, ‘You’ve got to be kidding me’.”

In the fourth quarter and overtime, the outstanding Tebow completed 18-of-24 passes for 191 yards and a touchdown.

It was not the first time that the Broncos had hit back to win a game that seemed to be out of their reach this season as they beat Miami 18-15 from another seemingly impossible position.

When Tebow came into the team, Denver had lost four of their first five games of this season on the back of a 4-12 record last year.

They have now won seven of the eight matches Tebow has played in and are looking as though they could reach the play-offs for the first time in six years and may even be potential Super Bowl winners.

A modest Tebow said after his side’s amazing fightback: “I don’t think it’s Tebow Time, I just think it’s Bronco Time, and the team steps up.”
