Broncos, Tebow stun fans and athletes

Updated: January 9, 2012, 6:20 AM ET

The majority of SportsNation voted that the Steelers would defeat the Broncos. Instead, Tim Tebow threw for 316 yards and 2 touchdowns and rushed for another TD. Along the way, he made some people into believers (at least in Tebow).

Fans react

TJW_gatorbucfan416: Superman just bought him some brandnew Tebow pajamas!!!

Necifix: I started screaming and Tebowing. He is the greatest quarterback to ever live. I don't care if none of the stats prove that, somehow, he is the greatest. He will win the Superbowl.

BucSox79: If everyone thinks this is something, just imagine if they manage to beat the Pats next week. I dont pray much, but ill be praying for a miracle in Foxboro for the Broncos next week. To see the look on Bellichick's face after losing to Tebow and Broncos would be absolutely priceless.

klacy7544: 3 total TD's against a top D is amazing. Tebow as a starter is 8-3. PERIOD!!!!!

Splackwell: Well, I am man enough to admit that I was wrong. The kid had a pretty damn good game. So for today. Tebow > me

SweetGeorgiaBarbequeSauce: The pass itself was not neccesarily a bomb, but it was placed perfectly.
