Tebow rallies Broncos to 18-15 OT win over Miami
Question of the Day
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.
In overtime, Denver’s D.J. Williams sacked Matt Moore to force a fumble and recovered it at the Miami 36. Three plays later, Matt Prater hit the winning 52-yard field goal.
“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 St. Louis Rams (0-6) also remained winless after Dallas rookie DeMarco Murray ran for a franchise-record 253 yards in the Cowboys’ 34-7 win.
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.
Jay Cutler threw for 226 yards and a touchdown and the Bears (4-3) intercepted Josh Freeman four times to win their second game in a row.
The Buccaneers (4-3) lost for the second time in three years in London.
Tampa Bay scored two touchdowns in the fourth quarter to pull within three points. But after a 25-yard field goal by Chicago’s Robbie Gould, Freeman was picked off with 37 seconds left by D.J. Moore.
