Tim Tebow Handled Steelers Defense Like No Other QB

Tim Tebow not only threw passes of 30, 40, 51, 57 and the game-winning 80 yards, but he also did what no other quarterback was able to do this season against the Pittsburgh Steelers. As Bill Barnewll points out, Tebow shredded the Steelers' pass defense:

Tebow finished with 316 passing yards, well above his normal level of production. As it turned out, we never saw Brady Quinn in the game at all. Maybe the Steelers were expecting Tebow to falter and were just waiting for Quinn to enter the game.

Guess we shouldn't doubt what Tim Tebow can do.
