After trailing 10-0 late in the fourth quarter against the Chicago Bears on Sunday, Tim Tebow helped orchestrate a 13-10, come-from-behind, overtime victory.
Tebow drove the Broncos 63 yards on seven plays late in the fourth, capping off the drive with a 10-yard touchdown strike to Demaryius Thomas with 2:08 remaining. That cut the Chicago lead to 10-7 and set up a Denver onside kick.
The Bears were able to recover the kick after the ball briefly bounced around, but the Broncos' defense forced Chicago to go three-and-out on the ensuing drive. Tebow then led the Broncos 39 yards on eight plays, setting up an impressive 59-yard field goal by Matt Prater to tie the game with three seconds left.
The Bears received the ball to begin overtime and drove 43 yards before running back Marion Barber fumbled, giving the Broncos the ball at their own 34-yard line.
In true Tebow fashion, the second-year QB drove Denver 33 yards on nine plays, setting up Prater for a game-winning, 51-yard field goal and subsequently raising more questions about whether Tebow is, in fact, human.
The Broncos are now 7-1 with Tebow at the helm.
