2012 NFL Playoffs: Denver Broncos Win Stunning Overtime Playoff Contest as Tim Tebow Goes “John 3:16? On the Pittsburgh Steelers
You could not possibly have dreamed up a better script. You really couldn’t have. This was one for Hollywood.
The critics were calling for Tim Tebow’s head after he ended the season with three dismal performances. His own team wasn’t fully supportive of the young quarterback, despite seven victories in an eight-game stretch earlier in the year.
Reports even surfaced that Denver was one bad series by Tebow away from inserting backup quarterback Brady Quinn into the game.
And then… Tebow time happened.
Tim Tebow led the Broncos to 29 points against the Pittsburgh Steelers and their top-ranked NFL defense, including an amazing, improbable, incredible 80-yard touchdown pass to Demaryius Thomas on the first play of overtime.
Tebow completed just 10 of 21 passes but threw for exactly 316 yards and two touchdowns.
316. And that’s where the irony begins.
John 3:16 is Tebow’s favorite Bible verse.
Tebow has been known to paint the verse on his eye black during actual football games, which has caused heavy critcism. He did it with Florida in the 2009 national championship game and 94 million people googled the verse during the game.
But the NCAA, as well as the NFL, banned their players from writing verses (or anything) on their eye black during games, stating that it makes their players look less professionally dressed.
That didn’t stop Tebow from spreading the word of God. Not one bit.
Think about this for a second. Tebow can’t write John 3:16 on his eye black so he goes out and throws for 316 yards. Oh, and he makes a believer of John. John Elway, that is.
Does it get any better than that?
John 3:16 is once again one of the most popular searches on Google after Tebow defeated Pittsburgh with exactly 316 yards.
He did so on an NFL postseason single-game record 31.6 yards per completion. There’s your 316 again. Denver was also helped out by a clutch interception of Ben Roethlisberger. The play, of course, came on 3rd and 16. 316.
By the way, receiver Demaryius Thomas, who caught the game-winning touchdown, was born on Christmas Day, the day of the anniversary of the birth of Jesus.
Tim Tebow’s performance against the Pittsburgh Steelers in his first ever postseason game was one for the ages. It was historic, clutch, and almost, well, divine.
John 3:16: “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son that whoever believes in Him will not perish but have everlasting life.”
And since his name is Tim and he did just win his first playoff game, let’s check out 1 Timothy 3:16 for all those who may have wondered.
1 Timothy 3:16: “Great indeed, we confess, is the mystery of godliness: He was manifested in the flesh, vindicated by the Spirit, seen by angels, proclaimed among the nations, believed on in the world, taken up in glory.” (Bryn Swartz – rantsports.com)
