“Tebow earned another ovation late in the fourth quarter. After a turnover gave the Eagles the ball in Colts territory, Tebow ran around right end and dove over Colts safety Winston Guy for a 7-yard touchdown.””

Tim didn’t play football last season after being released from the New England Patriots in 2013.
