And “Tebow Time” it was.

After a two-year absence from the NFL, Tim Tebow took to the field on Sunday for his Philadelphia Eagles debut.

Fans gave a standing ovation when the 28-year-old quarterback entered the preseason game against the Indianapolis Colts, ESPN reports.

“I was thankful,” Tebow told ESPN of the cheering fans. “But I was also like, ‘[The Eagles offensive players] won’t be able to hear me!’ ”

He added: “It’s very humbling. It definitely means a lot.”

Tebow made his first appearance with seven minutes left in the third quarter. In the fourth, Tebow ran to the right, dodging a Colts safety for a seven-yard touchdown.

He finished the game with the touchdown and 6-for-12 completions for 69 yards. He ran four times for 15 yards in the Eagles’ 36-10 victory over the Colts.

While Tebow acknowledged to ESPN that he did “some things well” in the preseason game, he also recognized that there is room for improvement.

“I think there’s some things that we want to work on,” he said. “For me, it’s going back, watching film, looking at everything, trying to make corrections and get better one day at a time.”
