ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Tim Tebow showed off his fancy moves on a wild play that didn't even count.
Tebow's failed scramble just before halftime stood as the play of the game, until Stephen McGee - another option quarterback in college - ran around to throw a 13-yard touchdown pass and a 2-point conversion with 15 seconds left, giving the Dallas Cowboys a 24-23 victory over the Denver Broncos in a preseason opener Thursday night.
Tebow led the Broncos to two field goals in four drives. The first came on a drive that started on his own 10-yard line, the other on a series that started 7 yards from the end zone. He completed 6 of 7 passes for 91 yards. He also ran twice for 15 yards.
McGee completed 13 of 24 passes for 208 yards and McGrethrew three TD passes, while Dwayne Harris caught 5 passes for 127 yards and 2 scores, including the game-winner.
