Knowshon Moreno hurdles defender; gains first down (GIF)


As the Denver Broncos continue to gash the New England Patriots defense, running back Knowshon Moreno got a quick taste of success. After his offense line opened up a huge hole, Moreno made Patriots defenders miss with some nifty moves and a hurdle as he gained the first down.

Moreno’s run got the Broncos deep in Patriots territory, where Peyton Manning went on to connect with tight end Jacob Tamme for the touchdown to give Denver an early 10-0 lead. Denver’s offense has been torching New England all game, which has to have the Patriots wishing they had Vince Wilfork in the center of their defensive line.
