Tim Tebow Throws TD Pass For Broncos' 7-6 Lead Over Steelers

Tim Tebow led the Denver Broncos to a touchdown on the team's first drive of the second quarter, giving them a 7-6 lead over the Pittsburgh Steelers in this 2012 NFL Playoffs game. The big play on the drive was Demaryius Thomas' 51-yard catch on 3rd-and-12. Tebow had to dance around the pocked for a little bit before he found Thomas down the left sideline for the huge catch. Thomas beat Ike Taylor on the play.


Then after a one-yard rushing play, Tebow found Eddie Royal for a 30-yard touchdown catch:


Royal is able to maintain possession while he slides out of bounds for the touchdown. It was the Broncos first touchdown since the Buffalo Bills game on Christmas Eve.
