Quote of the Day
"[Tim Tebow] showed he's a quarterback in the NFL, case closed. They say he couldn't throw. They said we wouldn't be able to run the ball on them. We did that. I wonder what they're going to say next week." -- Denver RB Willis McGahee, afthe the Broncos surprised the Steelers with a 29-23 overtime win. Tebow passed for 316 yards and 2 TDS, and also ran for 50 yards and a rushing TD
He had to wait for the final game of the NFL weekend to get one that was still in contention entering the 4th quarter. And although Denver prevailed, this one actually had Tebow playing well in the first half and the Steelers coming from behind to send the game into overtime. And then zip, zoom, game over. Tebow threw for a total of 316 yards, but 80 of them came on that final play. So heading into overtime, he was only 9/20 for 236 yards and one passing TD. Not terrible, but a far cry from 10/21, 316 and 2.
Three Football Pickoff slates had the maximum possible score of 249 points (with Denver doubled). The top two entries in the YTD standings flipped order, but itís still a 2-horse race.

The Lions trailed the Saints 24-21 with the Saints facing a third down at their own 28 yard line entering the 4th quarter. That certainly qualifies as being in contention to me. According to Advanced NFL Stats Win Probability Detroit's WP entering the 4th quarter was actually significantly higher than Pittsburgh's entering the 4th quarter.
