CORTLAND, N.Y. (AP) -- It was Tebow Time for the New York Jets in goal-line drills.

The Jets provided a glimpse into their plan for Tim Tebow on offense Thursday, as the backup quarterback ran for two touchdowns and threw for another to Josh Baker in a four-play sequence that had the crowd at SUNY Cortland fired up.

On one wildcat-style play, Tebow took a snap from the shotgun, quickly faked a handoff to Joe McKnight and zipped into the end zone nearly untouched. Coach Rex Ryan yelled "Tebow's live!" to the defense before the drills.

Tebow had previously only been used in regular plays and as the punt protector on special teams.

Tebow says it "looks like there's gadgets and gizmos," but it's more of a "power play" that can stretch defenses.
