Tim Tebow.

Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow is on a roll.

The Broncos scored sole possession of first place in the AFC West after their 13-10 overtime victory over the Chicago Bears on Sunday.

Down 10-0 with 2:08 left in regulation, the Broncos scored ten unanswered points, capped off by a 59-yard field goal by kicker Matt Prater that sent the game into overtime.

Once again, the Tebow-led Broncos overcame a fourth-quarter deficit to win the game. Dubbed by some as “The Mile High Messiah,” Tebow has now set a  7-1 record since he took over as starter in week seven.

The former University of Florida star has helped lead the Broncos to an 8-5 record with comeback after comeback. He’s passionate off the field as well. Tebow is vocal about his Christian faith. He has said that he plans to remain a virgin until marriage and he established the Tim Tebow Fund to “bring faith, hope and love” to those in need, according to the fund’s website.

His devotion once got him in trouble. In 201o, the NCAA approved a rule banning players from writing messages in their eye blacks, which became known as “The Tebow Rule” because of his penchant of putting Bible passages in his.

One thing the 24-year-old Heisman Trophy winner is incredibly private about: His personal life. Rumors abound, but Tebow refuses to confirm his relationship status. That hasn’t stopped fans from speculating: Googleing “Tim Tebow girlfriend” returns more than a million hits.

Tebow and the Broncos will try to keep the magic alive next week, when they travel to New England to take on the Patriots.
