Tebow Time arrived early in the fourth quarter of the Eagles' 40-17 rout of the Ravens in Philadelphia on Saturday night, as the Eagles' fourth-string quarterback finally saw the field, much to the delight of the Eagles fans.
Tebow did what he usually does -- run first, look to throw second, and throw inaccurately as often as not.
Tebow ran the Eagles offense for the entire fourth quarter, which amounted to four possessions. The former Heisman Trophy winner from Florida finished 2-for-5 for 13 yards passing and also ran three times for 31 yards, including a 26-yarder right up the middle of the Ravens defense.
Tebow appeared to score on a 4-yard keeper, diving over the pylon and into the left corner of the end zone, but upon review he was ruled out of bounds short of the goal line.
Za'Darius Smith sacked Tebow on his first series in the game, but the sack was negated by a penalty on Ravens linebacker Zach Orr.
Tebow, who has been out of the NFL for two years, is trying to make the Eagles roster as a backup to Sam Bradford. He is listed behind Mark Sanchez and Matt Barkley on the depth chart, but Eagles coach Chip Kelly likes Tebow and his read-option running ability in short-yardage situations and possibly for two-point conversions.
Kelly and his frantic, fast-pace offense have already caused quite the stir in the NFL. Keeping Tebow on the 53-man roster would certainly add to that.
