The sports world is buzzing today after yet another dramatic victory engineered by Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow. Yesterday, Tebow—the equally praised and criticized star who has dominated NFL headlines this season—sent his underdog Broncos into the next round of the AFC playoffs, beating the Pittsburgh Steelers and their top-ranked defense in thrilling fashion.

Tebow, who rejuvenated a bad Denver team when he stepped into the role of starting quarterback in week 6, has a penchant for late-game heroics. But yesterday, the unorthodox quarterback saved his best finish for his biggest stage yet. After the Broncos' defense allowed the Steelers to tie the game late at 23-23 and send it into overtime, Tebow needed just one throw to shock the world. On the first play in OT, Tebow—who isn't exactly known for his rocket arm—stepped back, pulled the trigger, and flung a bomb to wide receiver Demaryius Thomas. After hauling in the ball, Thomas jolted down the field 80 yards and into the end zone, stiff-arming Steelers on his way and ending the shortest overtime in NFL history. (musclemorphosis.com.)
