Lightning struck on the first play of overtime yesterday afternoon in a sold out Mile High Stadium, when Tim Tebow connected with Demaryius Thomas to lock up a Denver Broncos (9-8) 29-23 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers (12-5) in the Wild Card round of the playoffs. Next up for the Broncos are the new England Patriots, this Saturday in Foxboro (6:00pm MT, CBS).

“This is why you do it,” Head Coach John Fox said. “It’s moments like tonight. … Whenever you put all the work that we put into these things, these moments are why.”

It was easy to see from the postgame celebration — the cheers, the hugs, the high-fives with fans — just how important this win was to the team.

“We just tried to step up,” said Tebow, who finished with 316 passing yards, 50 rushing yards and three total touchdowns. “We knew that it’s win or go home. This team wanted to fight and we wanted to play another game.”
