Broncos 29, Steelers 23 in OT

DENVER -- He's no longer a novelty, no longer a mystery, no longer a fluke. Tim Tebow is now a playoff-winning quarterback, and not because he managed this game.

He won it.

With Tebow tying two franchise records set by John Elway and throwing the winning touchdown pass in overtime, the Broncos defeated the Steelers 29-23 Sunday to advance to the next round of playoffs, next weekend at New England.

Tebow threw for 316 yards and ran for 50, and produced touchdowns each way. He joined Elway as the only Denver quarterbacks in the postseason to (1) complete two 50-yard passes and (2) throw and run for a touchdown, both in the same game.

Tebow needed just 10 completions to surpass the 300-yard mark, throwing rarely but gouging the Steelers for huge chunks of yardage when he did. That included his 80-yarder to Demaryius Thomas on the first play of overtime for the winning points.

Thomas finished with 204 yards on four catches.

Mulatto...anyone who wishes a career-ending injury on any athlete is the worst kind of bush-league scumbag. You are a punk.

Obviously, the Steelers were not at their best with key injuries, but you have to hand it to Tim Tebow...he made some great clutch throws and protected the ball very well. Both QBs saw receivers drop balls, both teams had questionable calls for and against them. True, the Steelers had injuries...but so did the Broncos (Moreno and Dawkins). All in all, an exciting game to watch.

There is a bit of irony in the number of yards Tim Tebow amassed: 316. John 3:16 is one of the most famous Bible verses.

I know NE is number 1 seed, but how can you make a team that played late Sunday have to travel cross country to play on Saturday and then give Houston an extra day. Makes no sense. And I am not a fan of any team left in the playoffs

The media makes everybody sick of Tebow.

I will admit I was sick of Tebow as well, but WTF...the guy is a winner.  The Broncos got some horrible calls today and still won the game.

I am so sick and tired of this guy. I've never wished something bad on a person but i wouldnt be upset if he suffered a career end injury next week so the following weeks edition of "Keeping up with the Tebowians" would be canceled
