When Peyton Manning's incredible story of perseverance and the Broncos' playoff run came to an end Saturday night, there was one football fan in particular who reveled in the Ravens' 38-35 double-overtime win in the AFC divisional round.

"Am I the only one in Denver who's happy right now?" tweeted Peter Tebow, an older brother of Jets backup quarterback Tim Tebow.

Tim, as we all remember, was the Broncos starting quarterback last season and led the team to an overtime playoff win over the Steelers at Heinz Field. But when Manning – the longtime Colts QB -- became a free agent in the 2012 offseason, Denver GM John Elway signed him and shipped Tebow off to the Jets for fourth- and sixth-round draft picks.

Manning, however, fell short on Saturday of doing what Tebow did – leading the Broncos to a playoff victory.

After the game, Peter Tebow retweeted this comment: “‘That’s karma, Elway.” -- wife, Tebow-lover’”
