At Florida, Tim Tebow famously put the number 3:16 (as in the Biblical verse John 3:16) on his eye black. That's a no-go in the NFL -- so instead of writing the digits on his face, he wrote them in the box score of the Broncos' unbelievably improbable 29-23 overtime victory against the Pittsburgh Steelers, by throwing for 316 yards. We'll have more on this game tomorrow -- but in the meantime, check out the winning touchdown below and ponder the question about whether The Chosen One's total yardage in the contest was a coincidence.
