In case the morning talk show profiles, CNN updates and frequent monologue jokes weren't enough to demonstrate the cultural zeitgeist of Tim Tebow, the Denver Broncos quarterback was the subject of a sketch on this weekend's episode of "Saturday Night Live."

Taran Killam played the wide-eyed Tebow, Andy Samberg was kicking hero Matt Prater and Jason Sudekis played the man responsible for Denver's second-half success, who advises the Broncos to take care of the game themselves instead of having Him come in and bail them out every fourth quarter.

"If I'm the son of God, Tom Brady's gotta be the guy's nephew."

And such is the power of Tebow that Matt Prater, a placekicker heretofore with barely known outside the immediate Prater family, got a shout out on the country's most famous comedy program.

Now if you'll excuse me, I've got the country music awards to watch on DVR.
