Jesus Pushed Marion Barber Out Of Bounds Because Tim Tebow Told Him To (Video)
I wasn’t much of a believer a few weeks ago, but suddenly Tim Tebow has me thinking about attending Sunday mass on a regular basis.
Those of you who were lucky enough to catch the end of the Denver Broncos’ 13-10 overtime victory over the Chicago Bears yesterday afternoon were treated to one of the most unlikely comebacks of the 2011 NFL season. And if you are anything like me, you were probably thinking to yourself, “there is no way Tim Tebow comes back from this one,” after his Broncos took over on offense from their own 37-yard line trailing by 10 with only 4:34 remaining in the fourth quarter. After all, up to that point Tebow had completed only eight passes all game and he was facing a very stingy Bears defense.
Heck, even after Tebow drove the Broncos down the field and capped off an 8-for-8 drive with a 10-yard touchdown pass to Demaryius Thomas, it still appeared as though the Broncos had no hope. The Bears were about to get the ball back, and with the Broncos out of timeouts and only 2:08 left on the clock, even three straight running plays and a punt would give Denver well under a minute to drive down the field and kick a game-tying field-goal…
…Unless, of course, one of those runs should end up out-of-bounds, stopping the clock in the process.
You have to believe that Marion Barber was well aware of this, but it was almost as if there was some supernatural force that sent the Bears’ running back to the sideline during his second-down run. The play-by-play may credit Broncos linebacker D.J. Williams with pushing Barber out of bounds, but if you ask me, it actually appears as though this was the work of Tebow’s right-hand-man; the Lord Jesus Christ.
And after Jesus did his job, he left the rest to Tebow, Matt Prater and the Broncos defense, as Tebow set up his kicker for the game-tying 59-yard field-goal and in overtime the defense forced a turnover that set-up Prater’s game-winning 51-yard kick.
It was one of the most improbable victories that any of us have witnessed this year, but I guess when you have Tim Tebow and Jesus Christ on your side, there is always a miracle just waiting to happen.
In case you missed it, here is a look at Jesus pushing Marion Barber out of bounds (which has been appropriately mashed with the Buffalo Wild Wings commercial).
