FOXBOROUGH — Fans who stayed until the end of the Patriots’ preseason finale against the Giants were treated to a last-minute Tim Tebow-to-Quentin Sims touchdown that put the finishing touches on a 28-20 win for New England.
After failing to convert on fourth down, New York’s offense, at the time led by fourth-string quarterback Curtis Painter, gave the ball back to the Patriots at the 17.
Rather than taking a knee, Tebow threw up a jump ball and Sims came down with it.
It was the second touchdown of the night for Sims, a rookie out of Tennessee-Martin; earlier in the fourth quarter he slipped out of a tackle after catching a ball from Tebow and sprinted the last 30 yards or so into the end zone. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
