In case you missed it last week, Knowshon Moreno, Montee Ball and Ronnie Hillman played a little game of rock, paper, scissors on the sidelines of the Denver Broncos‘ Monday night game against the Oakland Raiders — that ended in a blowout.
The reason behind the playing of this childhood deciding game was unclear when it was seen on national television, until everyone realized it was to decide who would go in for the next running play at the two-yard line and score a touchdown. It might have looked disrespectful to the Raiders, deciding how to score on a game of rock, paper, scissors, but it got the job done. Hillman came in and score the short touchdown — sometimes it pays off to be lucky when playing rock, paper, scissors.
This week, the Broncos hosted the Philadelphia Eagles and it was not even close. The Broncos scored over 50 points and made yet another team look silly in the process of winning their fourth straight game to begin the season. Moreno scored a touchdown in the game that was already out of hand and performed a pretty awesome touchdown celebration, mocking last week’s decision on who would score.
Moreno and the Broncos have had a red-hot start to the season and this is just them having fun — again. What’s even better about the celebration is that wide receiver Eric Decker frog-hopped Moreno with absolutely no problem at all.
This team is good, they’re having fun, they could go unbeaten this year and Peyton Manning is the favorite to win the MVP and break some records. It’s probably a good time to live in Denver nowadays.
