Tim Tebow's Game Winning Run Sets NFL Record

Friday November 18th, 2011

Tim Tebow’s 20-yard charge into the end zone in last night’s Denver Broncos victory over the New York Jets marked the longest-ever game-winning run for a quarterback in the final minute of a fourth quarter, according to a tweet from ESPN Stats & Info.

The run capped off a 95-yard drive put together by Tebow, helping the Broncos defeat the Jets 17-13 last night in Denver. The victory helped the Broncos improve to 5-5 on the season, as they have now won four of their past five games with Tebow as the starting quarterback.

The victory also marks the second consecutive game the Broncos have won despite Tebow completing less than 10 passes in each contest. The second-year quarterback completed just nine of 20 pass attempts last night for a total of 104 yards. On the ground he totaled 68 yards in eight rushes.
