Tebow Time: Broncos stun Chicago 13-10 in OT

Matt Prater’s 51-yard field goal 6½ minutes into overtime gave the Broncos a 13-10 victory over the stunned Chicago Bears on Sunday. Prater’s 59-yarder with 3 seconds left in regulation tied the score after Tebow led another rally.

“If you believe,” Tebow said, “then unbelievable things can sometimes be possible.”

It was Denver’s sixth straight win and seventh in eight games since Tebow was promoted to starter. The Broncos have trailed in the second half in six of those victories.

This latest comeback put Denver in sole possession of first place in the AFC West after Oakland’s 46-16 drubbing at Green Bay.

“Never say never,” wide receiver Eric Decker said. “That’s a great characteristic of this team – again it wasn’t pretty. But again in the fourth quarter, we found a way to make some plays. Matt Prater, man, the kid can boom it.”

After failing to score on their first dozen possessions, the Broncos (8-5) erased a 10-0 deficit in the final 2:08 of regulation.

“It’s not Tebow Time,” the quarterback retorted. “It’s Broncos Time.”

In the extra session, after a Marion Barber fumble, Tebow took the Broncos from their 34 to the Chicago 33, and Prater sent the fans home happy.

Tebow has six game-winning drives in the fourth quarter or overtime in his first 11 starts
