Tebow rallies Broncos to 18-15 OT win over Miami
Tim Tebow was being shut out in his first start of the season.
What happened next was why all those Broncos fans clamored for the former Florida star. Denver stunned the winless Miami Dolphins by rallying for an 18-15 victory in overtime.
The Broncos (2-4) appeared beaten when they trailed 15-0 with 5:23 left and took over at their 20. At that point Tebow was 4 for 14 for 40 yards.
In the frantic final minutes of the fourth quarter, Tebow led TD drives of 80 and 56 yards sandwiched around a successful onside kick. He scored a 2-point conversion standing up with 17 seconds left to tie the score.
“It was my fault we were in that position,” Tebow said. “Silly things kept happening. On the sidelines, we were still believing. We wanted it, and they believed in me for more than 60 minutes.”
Miami (0-6) extended the NFL’s longest losing streak to nine games, leaving the status of embattled coach Tony Sparano even more tenuous.
The Oakland Raiders‘ quarterback experiment went far worse than the Broncos’, with Kyle Boller and newly acquired Carson Palmer throwing three interceptions each in place of the injured Jason Campbell in a 28-0 loss to the Chiefs.
Bears 24, Bucs 18
At Wembley, England, Matt Forte ran for 145 yards and a touchdown and Chicago held on for the win.
The Buccaneers (4-3) lost for the second time in three years in London.
