Mallett, Tebow get time at QB in preseason finale
The man generating the most interest was quarterback Tim Tebow, who entered the game to open the second half after Tom Brady’s top backup, Ryan Mallett, played the entire first half.
Tebow’s first possession featured a nice play-action pass where he showed good ability to hide the ball and complete a soft touch pass, but the drive bogged down after Tebow was sacked twice.
Players who stated strong cases for themselves included veteran running back Leon Washington, who turned in a 43-yard punt return. He remains a roster maybe at a deep position, as does rookie George Winn (10 carries, 45 yards, touchdown). Winn should at least earn a practice squad slot.
On defense, rookie defensive end Michael Buchanan showed up with several strong pass-rush moves from the right side.
