The Denver Broncos take on the Pittsburgh Steelers this Sunday in an AFC Divisional Round Playoff game that, by our unique metrics, ought to be narrowly won by Denver.
If that happens, and if the Bengals knock off the Texans on Saturday, Tim Tebow will take his team to Baltimore to face the Ravens – and defensive standout Terrell Suggs is already getting the trash talk started in anticipation of such a matchup.
Appearing yesterday on ESPN’s First Take, Suggs referenced Denver’s 7-3 loss to close the season, along with the perception that Tebow’s religion conviction actually helps Denver pull out victories.
“With all do respect, we dont pray on sidelines”, the linebacker said. “Once again God had to save Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos… [He] couldn’t even give them two drives? 7 to 3?”
Suggs, a leading candidate for Defensive Player of the Year, added that he doesn’t “feel comfortable” praying every fourth quarter and would never ask God to “come save me again.”
That’s fair, but we wonder if the Baltimore star would have a different viewpoint if the Ravens didn’t have Ray Rice in the backfield. That guy is awesome.
