Tebow acquired just one goal in 16 snaps of engage in on Sunday and wasn’t in a position to capture that concentrate on (it was caught by his teammate, Tavon Austin, as an alternative) finishing with no catches and yards.

That was not the most brutal minute for the quarterback-turned-baseball-player-turned-tight-end. On one play in the match, Tebow lined up on the remaining side. He arrived back again across and tried to block Browns defensive lineman Trevon Young. In its place, he bounced off Younger and fell to the floor prior to bouncing again up and hitting his individual teammate.


Matters obtained worse. On the pretty upcoming engage in, Tebow lined up to block Young again and was tossed aside. That gave Younger an simple route to the backfield and halting the enjoy proper away.
