Jets Open Preseason with Loss to Bengals
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.
