Contrary to popular belief, Tim Tebow didn’t force Marion Barber to run out of bounds late in regulation. Likewise, Tebow didn’t cause Barber to fumble in overtime.
Tebow also didn’t kick a 59-yard field goal to force overtime. Or a 51-yard field goal to win the game.
Instead, Matt Prater made those kicks.
And Prater is only the second player in league history to kick a field goal of 50 yards or longer to tie a game with less than a minute remaining, and a field goal of 50 yards or longer to win it in overtime.
By the way, the other one isn’t Tim Tebow. Instead, it was Peyton Manning’s favorite liquored-up kicker, Mike Vanderjagt.
