The Denver Broncos opted for Peyton Manning over Tim Tebow as their quarterback this year. That decision -- an obvious one, for just about every NFL mind -- paid off during the regular season, as Manning made an MVP run while leading the Broncos to a 13-3 record.
However, it all came crashing down for Denver on Saturday. Manning tossed a very costly overtime interception, and the Broncos were upset by Baltimore in the divisional round.
The Broncos also bowed out in last season's divisional round, but only after Tebow helped lead a playoff victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers. Saturday, in the aftermath of Denver's heartbreaking defeat, Tebow's brother, Peter, gloated:
Am I the only one in Denver who's happy right now?The less-famous Tebow also retweeted the message, "That's karma, Elway." There's no telling where Tim Tebow will end up playing next season. For one day, though, it appears as if the Tebow family enjoyed a tiny bit of satisfaction.
