Horse Tracks: Remembering that Tebow play

Good Morning Broncos Country.

Wild Card Playoffs - Pittsburgh Steelers v Denver Broncos

It’s Steelers week!

The Broncos host the Pittsburgh Steelers this Sunday in what could make or break the Broncos 2018 season. A loss all but ends the Broncos slim playoff hopes while a win could inspire a late season rally for a wildcard spot.

Speaking of the Steelers and a wildcard game. Lets remember a great memory(and troll job on the Steelers) for every single Broncos fan alive.

Tim Tebow’s walk off touchdown pass to Demaryius Thomas against the Pittsburgh Steelers in a wildcard game.

This play goes down as one of the top plays in Denver Broncos history. It was inprobable, but it happened. Something we can fondly remember while trolling Steelers fans that their team lost because a minor league baseball player beat them in a playoff game.

Honorable mention: That time Peyton Manning fell down, slowly got up, and completed a pass against the Steelers in a playoff game

This also resulted in another Broncos victory over the Steelers in the playoffs.
