Before the onside kick ever bounced off the grass, off a Dolphin, back onto the grass and into the arms of a Denver Bronco, Tim Tebow and his receiver Demaryius Thomas talked and prayed.
Prayed just for the opportunity to win the game against the winless Dolphins and avoid torturous embarrassment for at least a week.
“We sat together on the sideline, talked and prayed,” Thomas said. “I just saw it in his face, his want-to.”
That prayer, of course, had no bearing on how the football bounced.
