Tim Tebow turns 28 today, and in honor of the Eagles quarterback and at-large legend, it's time to take a look back at some of the biggest moments of his career.
From his breakout with the Broncos to his resurgence as a Jet to his not-so-memorable time as a Patriot to Eagles training camp, where he's battling Matt Barkley to be Philly's third-string quarterback, it's been an intriguing career for Tebow to say the least (not to mention his highly successful career at Florida and his time as an analyst for ESPN and the SEC Network.)
So let's take a deep dive into the Tebow archives and appreciate the man who never fails to captivate media throngs and somehow remains part of our greater sports consciousness.
Highlights in no scientific order.
Game-winning touchdown run vs. the Jets
Tebow led a 95-yard game winning drive with less than six minutes to go, culminating in glory.
40-yard touchdown run against the Raiders
Denver was 3-11 after this loss to Oakland in 2010, but Tebow opened his team's scoring in memorable fashion. This was his first NFL start.
Game-winning 80-yard touchdown pass vs. Steelers in Wild Card game
Tebow hit a young Demaryius Thomas on a post, and of course Thomas ran it to the house on the first play of overtime, sending Denver to the next round.
The Jump Pass
Of course, the play that won the 2009 National Championship.

Did you know Tim Tebow has scored touchdowns on more than one continent?
Tim's first touchdown*
*This was in the preseason, but it was Tebow's first taste of an NFL endzone. We're sentimental.
Tim's second NFL touchdown
This one counted for real.
The preseason touchdown pass he threw as a Patriot
Not like we need to be reminded, because Tim Tebow is in fact a true patriot, but he was on the Patriots in 2013 and did this in the preseason.
A cool touchdown he scored in Madden '12
Happy birthday, Tim.
