EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- Tim Tebow got the fans fired up with a dazzling 20-yard run in the fourth quarter, but threw an interception three plays later and the Carolina Panthers held on for a 17-12 victory over the New York Jets on Sunday night.

The Jets (0-3) still haven't scored a touchdown through three preseason games.

Tebow faced a third-and-16 from the Jets 34 and ran around in the backfield, eluded a tackle attempt by Ryan Van Bergan and took off and slipped through a few other tackle attempts by the Panthers (2-1) before being taken down for a 20-yard gain by Reggie Smith. Tebow pumped both fists and yelled at the crowd chanting "Tee-boww! Tee-boww!" But three plays later, Tebow threw an easy interception to Smith.

Tebow had another chance to get the Jets in the end zone, but threw four straight incompletions to end the game.
