Tim TebowDenver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow prays after the Broncos defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers in overtime in the NFL AFC wildcard playoff football game in Denver on Sunday. Although Tebow can't put his favorite Bible verse, John 3:16, on his eye black anymore, the set of numbers kept making an appearance in Sunday's game.

The Christian quarterback's passing yardage against the Steelers was 316 yards, for an average of 31.6 yards per completion. The SportsBusiness Journal reports that in the final quarter hour of the game—in which Tebow threw the winning pass to Darius Thomas, born on Christmas Day—the TV ratings peaked at 31.6. And the Steelers' only interception took place at the third down with 16 yards to go.

What do you think? Is this just a coincidence, or an act of God?
