Tim Tebow Wins It For Denver In Overtime On 80-Yard Touchdown Pass To Defeat Steelers 29-23

The Pittsburgh Steelers 2011-12 season ended on the first play of overtime in their Wildcard game against the Denver Broncos on Sunday night. Tim Tebow, who had the best passing day of his career, connected with Demaryius Thomas on yet another huge play to quickly end it. Thomas took it 80 yards down the right sideline, beating Ike Taylor and holding off Ryan Mundy to scamper in for the winning score.

The big play haunted the Steeler secondary all day, and it was their undoing in overtime. Thomas finished with four catches for 204 yards. Tebow finished with 10 completions for 316 yards.
