Tim Tebow, throwing for 69 yards and running for a touchdown in his first game in two years, got a warm Philadelphia welcome on Sunday as the Eagles beat the Indianapolis Colts 36-10.

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, reported The Associated Press.

"It's very humbling, a blessing. I appreciated it," Tebow said after the game.

Tebow completed his first four passes and fans chanted "Tebow! Tebow!" during his first series.

He dove into the pylon on a 7-yard TD run late in the fourth quarter and finished with 15 yards rushing on four carries. He completed 6 of 12 passes and was sacked twice.

"I liked how Timmy threw it," said Eagles coach Chip Kelly.

Tebow hadn't played since the 2013 preseason with New England until the Eagles (1-0) signed him to compete with Matt Barkley for the No. 3 spot behind Sam Bradford and Mark Sanchez. Barkley was 12 of 20 for 192 yards and one interception.

"Did some things decent and some things we have to work on," Tebow said. "I have to be more consistent."

Quarterback Andrew Luck was 5 of 6 for 43 yards for the Colts (0-1).
