Tim Tebow Returns Eagles

Sunday marked the return of Tim Tebow to the NFL following a two-year hiatus, and the results during his debut with the Philadelphia Eagles were of the mixed variety.

It all started with a warm welcoming from the Philly fans (which is not a common occurrence in the City of Brotherly Love) upon his entrance midway through the third quarter:

As for his on-field performance, through the air he wasn’t horrible, but he wasn’t great either, completing 6 of his 12 pass attempts for just 69 yards, zero touchdowns and zero interceptions.

But in typical Tebow fashion, the former Heisman Trophy winner was much more effective on the ground, rushing for 15 yards and a touchdown—which came with just two minutes remaining to help solidify a 36-10 Eagles victory.
