Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow didn’t just earn his first-ever playoff win with the club’s 29-23 overtime victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday, he also earned a substantial performance bonus.

According to NESN, Tebow has an escalator clause in his contract that allows him to earn $250,000 for each playoff victory the Broncos capture. If the Broncos come through with another upset win this weekend against the New England Patriots, Tebow will reportedly receive another bonus.
