Tim Tebow completed only four passes and threw an interception in his debut with the New York Jets on Friday night, and the Cincinnati Bengals pulled away to a 17-6 preseason win.

The Jets let their celebrated newcomer play the second quarter and most of the third. He led the Jets to a field goal and completed 4 of 8 passes for 27 yards with one interception, which translated to a passer rating of 18.2. He also scrambled three times for 34 yards.

The Bengals got a pair of touchdowns from reserve running back Cedric Peerman, who recovered a blocked punt in the end zone and scored on a 1-yard run.
