I'm really hoping for some good games this weekend.

After failing to score on their first 11 possessions, the Broncos erased a 10-0 deficit in the final 2:08 of regulation. Tebow hit Demaryius Thomas with a 10-yard touchdown pass, then got the ball back with 58 seconds left and drove Denver downfield for Prater’s kick.
The Bears won the toss in overtime and were in field goal range when Marion Barber coughed up the football at the Broncos 34 and Elvis Dumervil recovered.

There is no other plausible way to make sense of these games and the amazing, miraculous way with which they win week after week. Not the victory at Miami or the last-second beating of the New York Jets and certainly not Sunday afternoon when the Denver Broncos and Tebow were wretched for more than 55 minutes and somehow won a game that can’t rationally be analyzed.
It just happened.
The Broncos were losing by 10 points to the Chicago Bears with barely more than two minutes left in a game in which they had done nothing to make anyone think they would score. And then there were some passes. And there was a touchdown. And there was a dumb play where Bears running back Marion Barber ran out of bounds stopping the clock. And there were two very long field goals by Denver kicker Matt Prater that would be amazing in any other game in any other season. And the last of these field goals won the game in overtime, 13-10, which sent the Broncos running in wild delirium around the field.
