(ESPN.GO) — PHILADELPHIA -- Tim Tebow made his return to the NFL on Sunday, playing quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles in their preseason opener against the Indianapolis Colts.
"It was fun," Tebow said after the Eagles' 36-10 win. "Playing ball. I loved it. You want to be focused on footwork, reads, communication with everybody but also enjoy the moment. You won't always have it."

Tebow entered the game at Lincoln Financial Field with seven minutes left in the third quarter. He received a standing ovation from fans as he took the field for the first time.
"I was thankful," Tebow said, laughing. "But I was also like, 'They [the Eagles offensive players] won't be able to hear me! We'll have to go [to a] silent [count].' It's very humbling. It definitely means a lot."
