Tebow takes over for Orton in 2nd half

BY foxsports • October 8, 2011

The Denver Broncos went with Tim Tebow at quarterback to start the second half Sunday against San Diego.

A fan favorite, Tebow was instantly greeted with a chorus of cheers as he trotted onto the field. The crowd was so loud that Tebow couldn't hear the play call in his helmet.

Tebow went three-and-out in his first series. He did complete a short pass to wide receiver Eric Decker.

Starter Kyle Orton had a horrible first half, completing 6 of 13 passes for 34 yards. He also threw one interception.

Tebow was involved in one play during the first half, gaining 2 yards on a carry.
