Through the first half of Sunday’s game against the New York Giants, Denver Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno was the only person on the field who had reached the end zone. Moreno scored on a 20-yard TD run to put the Broncos ahead in the second quarter.
But, something that he did in the first quarter may have been equally, if not more impressive.
In that first quarter, with the Broncos in possession of the ball, Peyton Manning found one of his new favorite targets, TE Julius Thomas. Well, one thing that we always critique about a running back is his blocking ability.
Well, while Thomas was trying to rack up some yards after the catch, Moreno decided to show everyone how effective of a blocker he is:
Poor Terrell Thomas.
