Broncos, Tebow stun fans and athletes

Tim Tebow relishes his OT victory against the Steelers after regaining his passing touch. Ron Chenoy/US Presswire

The majority of SportsNation voted that the Steelers would defeat the Broncos. Instead, Tim Tebow threw for 316 yards and two touchdowns and rushed for another TD. Along the way, he made some people into believers (at least in Tebow).

Fans react

TJW_gatorbucfan416: Superman just bought him some brandnew Tebow pajamas!!!

Necifix: I started screaming and Tebowing. He is the greatest quarterback to ever live. I don't care if none of the stats prove that, somehow, he is the greatest. He will win the Superbowl.

BucSox79: If everyone thinks this is something, just imagine if they manage to beat the Pats next week. I dont pray much, but ill be praying for a miracle in Foxboro for the Broncos next week. To see the look on Bellichick's face after losing to Tebow and Broncos would be absolutely priceless.

klacy7544: 3 total TD's against a top D is amazing. Tebow as a starter is 8-3. PERIOD!!!!!

Splackwell: Well, I am man enough to admit that I was wrong. The kid had a pretty damn good game. So for today. Tebow > me

SweetGeorgiaBarbequeSauce: The pass itself was not neccesarily a bomb, but it was placed perfectly.
