"My comment after the game was uncalled for. I may root for another team but I should never gloat about anyone's misfortune. I'm truly sorry," the elder Tebow said on his twitter page.
The 28-year-old ministry leader based in Colorado, went on Twitter right after the game to share some good news that his local congregation might not have been as eager to receive.
"Am I the only one in Denver who's happy right now?"
While Tebow stopped short of pointing out that yes, his brother did happen to win a playoff game in overtime as a member of the Broncos last season while Peyton Manning failed in his quest to do so, he clearly relished the moment, retweeting another Tim Tebow fan's quote of "That's karma, Elway!"
