It's almost Tim Tebow Time again

The Eagles and Colts wrap up the first week of the preseason at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday. But first, let's look back on Jameis Winston's NFL debut, a terrible night for right tackles, Philip Rivers' new deal and lots more from Saturday.

CATCHING UP ON SATURDAY: News, scores and highlights from all of Saturday's preseason games, we've got them all right here.

TODAY'S GAME: The Eagles host the Colts today in a 1 p.m. ET matinee to finish off the first week of the preseason. Tim Tebow is expected to get plenty of playing time, and keep an eye on the Eagles secondary. As for the Colts, all eyes are on their offensive line and that embarrassingly deep group of wide receivers.

WINSTON'S DEBUT: The first overall pick in this year's draft got his first taste of NFL action on Saturday. It was a rough start for Jameis Winston, and his offensive line didn't do much to help him. However, he did make a couple of big plays, so all in all, it was a fairly typical start for a rookie QB.

IT'S A DEAL: Philip Rivers got paid on Saturday, agreeing to a four-year contract extension with the Chargers. It's got $84 million in new money, with $65 million guaranteed (part of the guarantee includes money he'll make this year, the last year on his old contract). He's worth every penny just for moments like this one.

RUGBY STAR RUNS: Australian rugby star Jarryd Hayne is trying to make a go of it in the NFL as a running back with the 49ers. He looked like he knew what he was doing on this incredible 53-yard breakaway run against the Texans last night.

INJURY REPORT: The Vikings took a hit with an injury to right tackle Phil Loadholt, who's out for the season now. The Bucs lost their right tackle, Demar Dotson, to a knee injury, a big loss to an offensive line that's already a pretty weak group. Chiefs right tackle Jeff Allen went down with a knee injury as well, but it doesn't appear to be serious. The St. Louis Rams will be without their best cornerback, E.J. Gaines, this season, the team learned yesterday. Ravens first-round draft pick, WR Breshad Perriman, hasn't been practicing since the start of camp. Chicago's first-round pick, Kevin White, may not play at all in 2015.

QB BATTLE: Houston's quarterback competition didn't really get any clearer on Saturday night. Ryan Mallett and Brian Hoyer both played well in limited action, and Tom Savage looks like he might wedge his way into the competition as well.

CARDINAL RULES: Arizona's starting offense looked sharp on Saturday night. The Cardinals are looking like a team that's ready to challenge for the top of the NFC.

TOUCHDOWN: It finally happened! A Chiefs wide receiver caught a touchdown pass.

49ERS PASS RUSH: Corey Lemonier, Aldon Smith's replacement in the 49ers lineup, struggled against the Texans. Could he get leapfrogged on the depth chart?

TROPHY DAD: Steelers linebacker James Harrison threw away his kids' participation trophies.
