When you face off against the Denver Broncos, chances are you are going to watch your secondary get picked apart as he lights up the scoreboard. You expect Manning to torch you with his arm, but when he begins picking up points with his legs, you know that you are in some serious trouble.
Manning has been on a roll in the second quarter as he helped the Broncos rally to a 28-17 lead, but it was one touchdown on the team’s final possession of the first half that caught everyone’s attention.
Knowshon Moreno took the fake while the Broncos were at the one-yard line, as the entire Cowboys defense and camera crew came crashing in to hold him up.
Unfortunately, Manning hung on to the ball and easily strolled in for the touchdown on the bootleg run. It was the first touchdown run for Manning in five years.

The Cowboys don’t have an answer for the Broncos after a quick start to the game, so they have to hope they can regroup at the half and find a way to avoid letting this game get out of control.
