It happened again.
With his team down three and the clock winding down late in the fourth quarter, Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow led his squad on a 12-play, 95-yard drive capped by his own 20-yard touchdown run to defeat the New York Jets at Sports Authority Field at Mile High Thursday night in Denver, CO.
It was the third time in his eight starts over the last two year that Tebow led Denver to a come-from-behind victory in the fourth quarter and his fourth win as the starting signal caller this season.
Tebow went 9/20 for 104 yards and rushed eight times for 68 yards and a touchdown on Thursday, improving to 4-1 as a starter in 2011 and 5-3 all-time when beginning a NFL game behind center. He accounted for 92 of 95 yards on the final drive.
In his five starts this year, Tebow is 52/115 (45.2 percent) through the air for 630 yards with six passing touchdowns and one interception. He has also run the ball 49 times for 351 yards and another score.
Tebow, as a NFL starter, has a career passing touchdown-to-interception ratio of 10-4 and career rushing touchdown-to-fumble ratio of 5-2.
