Tebow got a standing ovation when he entered midway through the third quarter and the crowd roared so loud when his name was introduced he had to quiet them down because he was taking the snap in a shotgun.

The New York Jets flagged Geno Smith for a false start.
Smith was photographed by the New York Post playing catch with a friend outside his New Jersey apartment Saturday, two days after the quarterback had jaw surgery. Smith had plates and screws inserted into the jaw, which was broken by a punch from then-teammate Ikemefuna Enemkpali on Tuesday.
The newspaper published a front-page image of Smith, his face swollen with black bandages on each cheek.
"He shouldn't be doing it right now," Jets Coach Todd Bowles said. "We handled that internally. We had that discussion."
Bowles also added that the matter "wasn't that big of a deal."
Smith is expected to be sidelined six to 10 weeks after being slugged by Enemkpali, who was released shortly after the incident and claimed on waivers by Buffalo.
