Last year, Tim Tebow broke the backs of the New York Jets, leading a 95-yard touchdown drive at the end of the game for an improbable Denver Broncos victory.

He did so against a Jets blitz where he broke contain and ran for a 20-yard touchdown. On Wednesday in practice, Tebow beat that same look again, according to the New York Daily News.

Only this time, Tebow did it with his arm, firing a 60-yard touchdown pass to receiver Patrick Turner. Last year, Rex Ryan certainly didn't find any humor in Tebow beating his club. But on Wednesday, now that Tebow is a Jet, he could chuckle.

"Me and Coach Ryan were laughing about it because it was a Blitz Zero look where, regardless of your protection, they’re bringing one more than you can block,” Tebow said. “Same play they ran vs me when I broke contain when we played them last year. So we were laughing about that.”
