San Diego Chargers

November 28, 2011 by staff 

San Diego Chargers, Tim Tebow wasn’t watching as San Diego’s Nick Novak lined up to attempt a 53-yard field goal that would have given the Chargers an overtime victory over the Broncos.

He was praying, of course.

Did Tebow ask for a miss?

“I might have said that. Or maybe a block. Maybe all of it,” the Denver quarterback said with a laugh.

Novak missed wide right. Tebow moved the Broncos down the field and Matt Prater kicked a 37-yard field goal with 29 seconds left in overtime to lift the Broncos to a 16-13 victory Sunday over the Chargers, who’ve lost six straight games for the first time in 10 years.

The teams avoided the first NFL tie since Cincinnati and Philadelphia ended 13-13 on Nov. 16, 2008.

Some people have a problem with Tebow wearing his religion on his sleeve – but he has been a savior for the Broncos, going 5-1 since coach John Fox elevated him to starter in the wake of his performance in a close loss to the Chargers on Oct. 9 in Denver.

Still, Hall of Famer John Elway, the Broncos’ executive vice president of football operations, won’t commit to Tebow because of his low passing numbers and poor rate of third-down conversions.

The Broncos (6-5) have won four straight and trail the Raiders by one game in the AFC West.
