Tim Tebow might be engineering all these comebacks for the Denver Broncos. It's Matt Prater who's sealing them.
Prater always considered himself an icy veined kicker whose heartbeat stayed steady despite the rising pressure he was under. This year, he's finally getting the chance to prove it.
Over and over.
Prater's 51-yarder in overtime that sent the Broncos past the stunned Chicago Bears 13-10 on Sunday was his third straight walk-off field goal. It followed his 59-yarder that tied it with three seconds left in the fourth quarter.
He and Indianapolis' Mike Vanderjagt are the only kickers in NFL history to have a 50-yard-plus kick to tie a game and then one to win it in overtime. Vanderjagt did it on Nov. 24, 2002, against Denver.
