Don’t look now, but Tim Tebow is passing the ball. It has the Denver Broncos in a close game against the Minnesota Vikings. Tebow connected with Demaryius Thomas, his fellow first-round pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, for a 21-yard touchdown pass in the third quarter.
That was Thomas’ second touchdown of the season.
The Broncos have been relying on Tebow’s arm more than his legs today. Later in the third quarter he hit Thomas for a 41-yard touchdown to make it a one-point game again. Check out the video of that touchdown here.
Thomas’ second touchdown capped off a series of big plays. Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder found Percy Harvin for a 52-yard strike two plays before that. Here’s the video of Harvin’s touchdown.
On the ensuing kickoff, Denver’s return man Quan Cosby returned the kick 63 yards to give Tebow a short field to work with on the next drive.
