Tim Tebow Denver Broncos Tim Tebow does it again!   shocks Steelers 29 23 in overtimeOne of the most storied NFL playoff teams ran into a rejuvenated Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos.

Sorry, Pittsburgh Steelers.

The magic is back.

Tebow connected with Demaryius Thomas on an electrifying 80-yard touchdown pass on the first play of overtime, and the Broncos defeated the stunned Steelers 29-23 in the AFC wild-card playoff game Sunday.

The play took 11 seconds and was the quickest ending to an overtime in NFL history.

Thomas hauled in a high play-action pass at the Denver 38, stiff-armed Pittsburgh cornerback Ike Taylor, then outraced safety Ryan Mundy to the end zone. Tebow knelt in his own end zone, pounding a fist in triumph before taking a victory lap in jubilation.

Behind Tebow’s 316 passing yards, the Broncos (9-8) are heading to New England for a divisional playoff game against the top-seeded Patriots on Saturday night.

The Steelers (12-5) lost despite Ben Roethlisberger rallying them from a two-touchdown halftime deficit with 10 points in the final 10 minutes.
