Tim Tebow & Demaryius Thomas Capture an ESPY for the Denver Broncos [VIDEO]
Sure, the Tim Tebow era is over now in Denver and it is a bit of a touchy issue now. Some are still hanging on like a creepy boyfriend after a breakup and others act like Tebow is Satan himself. There is no denying one thing though. If you are a Denver Broncos fan, Tim Tebow gave us some extremely exciting moments last season. The most exciting came in the first round playoff win against the Pittsburgh Steelers, and last night earned the Broncos an ESPY for “Best Moment.”
In overtime of the Broncos first round playoff game against the Pittsburgh Steelers last season, Tebow threw a pass that hit Thomas in stride and sent the Broncos to a thrilling win. The 80-yard touchdown on the opening play of overtime won Denver the game 29-23.
Vail’s World Champion skier Lindsey Vonn presented the award for “Best Moment.” When Vonn read the winner, she “Tebowed” and forgot to mention Thomas’ name. Tebow went up and quickly thanked Demaryius and told the audience what a great season the receiver had. Then Tim thanked his former Broncos teammates and said, “Take care of them Peyton.” Tim gave the award trophy to Demaryius on the stage.
Tebow and Thomas beat out Derek Jeter’s 3,000th hit, Bubba Watson’s miraculous win at the Masters and the Rays-Red Sox race at the end of the MLB season.
