Stat Line Of The Night — 1/8/12 — Tim Tebow
After losing their last three games of the season heading into the playoffs, most people figured Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos’ magical run would come to an early end during their Wild Card weekend match-up against a stout Pittsburgh Steelers defense. They were wrong!
During what may have very well been the best passing performance of his young career, Tebow looked like a calm, cool veteran throughout the evening, as he completed 10 of his 21 pass attempts for 316 yards and two touchdowns, including an 80-yard touchdown strike to Demaryius Thomas on the first play in overtime to give the Broncos the 29-23 victory.
Tebow would also add another 50 yards and a touchdown on the ground during his first ever playoff game. His impressive performance has earned his team a date with the New England Patriots next weekend, and it has also earned him “The Stat Line of the Night” for Sunday, January 8, 2012.
