Tom Brady praised fellow quarterback Tim Tebow for his overtime performance this past Sunday, ESPN Boston reports. Brady’s New England Patriots will face the Denver Broncos next weekend.

"They play for 60 minutes. They've obviously closed a lot of games and finished very well. We have a huge test. We'll all be excited, and hopefully have a good week of preparation and be ready to go,” Brady told the Boston area radio station.

Brady also offered his opinion on Tebow’s often questioned throwing abilities:

"Everyone says he struggles throwing the ball. What I saw last night, he had no problems throwing the ball," Brady said on WEEI. "He threw the ball extremely well when I was watching." The Patriots tuned their in-flight TVs to the Broncos-Bears matchup after defeating the Redskins 34-27.

On Tebow being most talked about quarterback in the Broncos-Patriots matchup, Brady said, "That's OK. Believe me, there is great reason. They're winning a ton of games and he's playing very well." As a result of Tebow’s late game heroics, the Broncos have gone 7-1, since the second year quarterback has taken over.
