Tebowing. During the final play of the Denver Broncos game vs the Miami Dolphins last Sunday, quarterback Tim Tebow, instead of watching the winning field goal go through the uprights was on one knee praying. Somehow, the act of getting down on one knee and praying when nobody else around is doing it was dubbed “Tebowing” after that moment. Media, fans and followers have taken the ‘Tebowing’ craze to a new level.
