Denver Broncos 18 Miami Dolphins 15
It was a close game from start to finish, but wasn’t a battle of defenses. it was more of a, whichever team had the worst offense lost the game. Game was rather boring, until the fourth quarter.
Only six points were scored in the first three-quarters of the game, all by the Dolphins in the second quarter. Can you say snooze fest? But, the Broncos quarterback at the time, Tim Tebow, made his name known for his play in the fourth quarter. This game really kicked that off.
He wasn’t without help, as the defense made some key stops and plays to help the offense out a lot. It really was a team effort to give the Broncos this win, and that fourth quarter would make ones heart explode.
