Broncos Vs. Dolphins Final Score: TIm Tebow Leads 4th Quarter Comeback In 18-15 Overtime Victory

For the first time in franchise history, the Denver Broncos defeated the Miami Dolphins on the road, 18-15. It took a Matt Prater field goal in overtime to defeat the Dolphins. Prater missed two field goals earlier in the game, but redeemed himself with the game-winning kick.

Tim Tebow played a huge part in the by leading a fourth quarter comeback in the final five minutes. After playing abysmally for the first three and a half quarters, Tebow found Demaryius Thomas and Daniel Fells for touchdown receptions inside the final three games. But Tebow also needed a two-point conversion to tie the game at 15, which he ran into the end zone unimpeded.

On the day, Tebow was 13-of-27 for 161 yards and two touchdown passes. He also had eight carries for 65 yards. Willis McGahee had just 76 yards on 18 carries, leaving the game late with a hand injury.

Matthew Willis and Fells had key receptions of 42 yards and 31 yards, respectively, to set up the touchdowns.

The 2-4 Broncos return home for a contest with the Detroit Lions at Mile High. Tim Tebow is certainly looking for another exciting game.

VIDEO: Tim Tebow Throws TD Pass To Demaryius Thomas

The Denver Broncos narrowly avoided being shutout on Sunday afternoon, scoring a touchdown late in the fourth quarter. Tebow found Demaryius Thomas for a five-yard touchdown catch.


As always, Tebow had to escape the pocked to avoid pressure. Once he did that, Tebow found Demaryius Thomas for a diving five-yard touchdown reception. As we see, the Dolphins' defenders believed he didn't catch it. Before Matt Prater attempted the extra point, Miami called a time out and had the play challenged. The official confirmed the ruling on the field that Thomas had possession of the ball as he came to the ground.

That is just the third touchdown reception by Thomas in his brief, injury-riddle two-year career. The Broncos are down 15-7 after the score.

Broncos Vs. Dolphins Halftime Score: Offensive Ineptitude By Both Sides Results In Miami Lead, 6-0

The Denver Broncos and the Miami Dolphins are playing in a very offensive game at halftime--offensive to football watchers' sensibilities and to fans of both teams. The Dolphins lead the Broncos at halftime, 6-0.

The Broncos twice had chances to put points on the board, but Matt Prater missed two field goals of 45-plus yards. The Dolphins, meanwhile, saw Dan Carpenter kick field goals of 38 and 36 yards for the lead. It has been a poor offensive showing by both teams.

Running back Willis McGahee had a costly fumble that led to the Dolphins second field goal:


As we see, McGahee takes the ball up the middle of the field, but he fails to properly secure the ball, resulting in a fumble and a turnover. That pretty much sums up the afternoon so far for both teams.
