Broncos Vs. Steelers: Denver And Tim Tebow Set Several NFL Records In Win

Tim Tebow had a breakout performance throwing the football on Sunday, completing 10-of-21 throws for 316 yards and a pair of touchdowns. He was the first quarterback to throw for more than 300 yards against the Steelers this season, but that was just the start of the milestones for Tebow individually and the Broncos collectively.

Tebow also set NFL records for yards per completion and yards per attempt in a playoff game. The overtime victory, which spanned one play and 11 seconds, was the shortest OT contest ever, and that includes the regular season. The game-winning 80-yard pass play was the longest touchdown pass in NFL overtime history.

This is pretty incredible as well:

Tim Tebow stung the Steelers with big passing plays Sunday, completing three throws of more than 50 yards, which was one more than he had in his career entering the day. In the last 10 seasons, the Steelers had never allowed more than two passes of 50-plus yards in any game.

Tebow "pulled the trigger" on Sunday -- as John Elway had hoped -- to some spectacular results.
