VIDEO: Tim Tebow Throws Career-Long Pass, Follows With Rushing TD

In a change from the regular season, the Denver Broncos have dominated the first five minutes of the second quarter, scoring two touchdowns for a 14-6 lead over the Pittsburgh Steelers in this 2012 AFC Wild Card game. Tim Tebow completed a 57-yard pass to Demaryius Thomas to set his career-long pass. Thomas caught the ball in stride and got extra yardage after the catch. Thomas had been adept at catching the deep passes from Tebow this season.

Tebow then ran the ball from the eight-yard line a play later to put the Broncos up, 14-6.

On the ensuing drive, Ben Roethlisberger was sacked by Robert Ayers and came up looking like his ankle was hurt further. QUinton Carter picked him off shortly thereafter.
