Winning for God. Some interesting facts following Denver’s incredible overtime victory the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The fact that Tebow had 316 yards passing and averaged 31.6 yards per pass in the game didn’t escape notice on Sunday night. Tebow wore John 3:16 on his eye black in the 2009 BCS Championship game and has since become identified with the famous Bible message. The coincidental stats caused millions of fans to perform Google searches on the Bible passage in the past 24 hours. Here’s one more unbelievable stat: John Ourand of Sports Business Journal reports that the final quater-hour television rating for the Broncos-Steelers game was, you guessed it, 31.6. As it turns out, the lone interception thrown in the game on Sunday night came from Ben Roethlisberger. What down and distance were involved when he threw it? Third and 16. Of course.
(John 3:16 reads: “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”)
In his post game interview, Tim thanked God for giving him the platform of football. This is guy is amazing, humble and an excellent role model.
