The Broncos Played Rock-Paper-Scissors To Decide Which Running Back Got A Garbage Time Touchdown

Monday night’s drubbing of the Raiders was too one-sided and predictable to merit a full recap. However, just to illustrate how horrific a beating it was by Denver, consider that their running backs played rock-paper-scissors to decide who would get a goal line carry in the fourth quarter with the Broncos already leading 30-14. That there is a comfortable lead.

As the officials deliberated if Hillman had crossed the goal line after a 13-yard gain, Hillman, Moreno and Ball decided to play rock-paper-scissors for which running back would get the goal line carry if the score was overturned. Hillman said Moreno threw down a rock one beat too early and was disqualified, and Hillman’s scissors trumped Ball’s paper.

So on the next play, it was Hillman’s touchdown.

Something to consider before drafting Knowshon Moreno in fantasy next season: he lacks rock throwing discipline. Also, he’s Knowshon Moreno.
