Tim Tebow's Stats: Denver QB Dissected NFL's No. 1 Pass Defense Sunday

While Tim Tebow has been known more for an eerie ability to win close games than for racking up big passing statistics in his first year as the Denver Broncos QB, he did both in Denver's 29-23 OT victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday.

Not only were his 316 passing yards a career-high, they were the most given up by the Steelers, the NFL's No. 1 rated pass defense, all year.

Pittsburgh had given up an average of only 171.9 yards a game, including holding Tom Brady to only 198 yards in a 25-17 Week 8 victory.

However, they were without starting safety and leading tackler Ryan Clark, who was held out of the game in Denver due to concerns about how his body would handle the altitude due to a rare blood disorder.

Tebow rushed for 50 yards and 1 TD on 10 carries while completing 10-21 passes for 2 TD's on Sunday, none bigger than the 80-yard pass-and-catch to Demaryius Thomas in OT that will live forever in Broncos lore.
