Yes, it was a short pass that a speedy Demaryius Thomas turned into victory. Yes, the Pittsburgh secondary was curiously out of position, with no one deep to prevent an overtime touchdown.
But Tim Tebow got the ball to Thomas at the end of another classic Denver Broncos victory that he triggered with a strong start, and the National Football League’s most compelling story just got more compelling.
It’s a no-brainer for this blog’s Sports Moment of the Weekend.
And even Lady Gaga was impressed, Tweeting in such a way that would make the devout Tebow blush:
“Giants fan but wow. #Tebow Thats what the fuck a champion looks like.”
Rendering most of the volumes of words penned by others rather useless.
An exception, from a Canadian columnist: “Tim Tebow is the best thing to happen to sports fans in a long, long, time.”
Unless you’re a Steelers fan this morning.
