In the 2009 BCS Championship game, Tim Tebow wore the Bible verse “John 3:16″ on his eye black. However, the NFL has strict rules against writing anything on eye black, but there were some interesting parallels in the numbers that Tebow put up yesterday to the specific Bible verse that speak for themselves.
Tebow passed for 316 yards.
He averaged 31.6 yards per pass.
The final quarter-hour television rating for the Broncos-Steelers matchup was, you guessed it, 31.6
Tebow also earned an additional $250,000 for the victory yesterday from a clause that was written into his contract. Because he took over 70% of the total snaps during the season, he will make an additional $250,000 for every playoff victory.
Twitter announced that there were 9,420 tweets sent per second after the final touchdown pass which breaks a sports record for the social media site.
