Broncos Vs. Chargers: Tim Tebow Throws 28-Yard Touchdown Pass To Put The Broncos Within Two Points

Just when it looked like the Denver Broncos would be depending on Tim Tebow to win the game with his legs, the second-year quarterback tossed a touchdown pass to running back Knowson Moreno. The 28-yard pass cut the San Diego Chargers’ lead to 28-26.

Asking for success on a second pass may have been too much to ask, however. Tebow and Brandon Lloyd failed to connect on a two-point conversion that would have tied the game with just over three minutes to play.

Tebow’s 28-yard pass almost doubled the passing output for the Broncos. Up until that play, Tebow and Kyle Orton, who Tebow replaced after the first half, had combined for just 34 total passing yards.

Denver fans went crazy when Tebow scored a 12-yard rushing touchdown earlier in the game, and the home crowd erupted when Tebow found Moreno for the touchdown.

San Diego will try to hold on for the win, but it should be an interesting week in Denver. Be sure to keep up with the action at Mile High Report.
