With 1:22 left in the second quarter of the Patriots-Eagles preseason game, New England backup quarterback Ryan Mallett was driven into the ground and had to leave the game following the injury timeout.

That meant it was, good god (!!!), Tim Tebow time.

And he didn't disappoint in his Patriots debut.

He badly missed receiver Aaron Dobson in the left flat on his first pass, he led tight end Zach Sudfeld just a little too much on his second attempt, and on his third snap, Tebow was sacked by about three Philadelphia defenders.

It was completely expected. And it was quite a show.

Tebow finished the game completing 4 of 12 passes for 55 yards. He also rushed four times for 31 yards.
