Tim Tebow's comeback wins

Full of fancy featwork: List of Denver Broncos' comeback wins worthy of closer look


In Tim Tebow​'s first start of the season, became the first NFL team to overcome a 15-point deficit with less than three minutes remaining.


Broncos 18, Dolphins 15, overtime, in Miami, Oct. 23.

By rallying to win this one, the Broncos had confidence the next time they were behind late. For this one, the Broncos and Tebow were on their own. Not only did the Broncos need two touchdowns and a two-point conversion to tie it, there was so little time left that they needed to recover an onside kick in between.

When citing the difficulty of this comeback, there's no sense overlooking the obvious. The 15 points appeared impossible given the way Tebow was playing in his first start. When the Broncos got the ball at their 20 with 5:23 remaining, Tebow was 4-of-14 for a mere 40 yards while taking five sacks for 27 yards of losses. Suddenly, magically, Tebow started throwing with accuracy. He threw two touchdown passes and ran in the two-point conversion.

In overtime, Denver needed Matt Prater​, who had missed two field goals earlier in the game, to come through from 52 yards. He did. Tebow Time was officially on the clock.
