The Broncos’ fourth-quarter and overtime rally to beat the Dolphins last week, led by quarterback Tim Tebow, is the winner for the GMC Never Say Never Moment of the Week, the NFL announced today.
Tebow led the Broncos on a furious come-from-behind victory, the likes of which had never been seen before. Down 15-0 with 2:52 to play, the Broncos became the first team since the 1970 NFL merger to come back from a 15-point or larger deficit with under three minutes remaining in the fourth quarter and win.
The Broncos rally beat Jets’ receiver Plaxico Burress’ three-touchdown day and the Steelers’ Ben Roethlisberger-to-Mike Wallace, 95-yard, catch-and-run touchdown.
Tebow’s victory will be stacked up against the 16 other Never Say Never weekly winners at the end of the season to determine the GMC Never Say Never Moment of the Year. At the conclusion of the regular season, fans can log onto NFL.com/gmc to vote throughout January for their favorite Moment of the Year among the 17 candidates.
The Broncos hope to continue their winning streak as the 5-2 Detroit Lions come to town Sunday for a 2:05 p.m MDT kickoff.
