Ugly But Still a Win: Tebow Pulls Out OT Victory for Broncos in Miami

News

"When you get knocked down, you've got to keep getting back up."

The legend of Tim Tebow grows.

In his first start this year and in his home state, Tebow rallied the Denver Broncos with two touchdown passes in the final 2:44 of the fourth quarter to force overtime,  where Matt Prater's 52-yard field goal gave them an 18-15 win Sunday over the Miami Dolphins.

"It's tough to say, but man, Timmy did a great job," said Dolphins center and college teammate Mike Pouncey."Hopefully the critics will get off him about what he can't do and talk about the things that he can do, and that's figure out a way to win the game, no matter what."

In the final minutes of the fourth quarter, Tebow led TD drives of 80, and 56 yards after a successful onside kick. The scrambler scored a standing 2-point conversion with 17 seconds left to tie the game.

In overtime, Denver's D.J. Williams sacked Matt Moore to force a fumble lining up kicker Matt Prater for the game-winning kick.

The Broncos (2-4) won for the first time in the eight games they've played on the Dolphins' field. Miami (0-6) extended the NFL's longest losing streak to nine games.

"You can't lose confidence in yourself, or you've lost already," Tebow said to the AP in regards to his shaky first half performance. "When you get knocked down, you've got to keep getting back up."
