Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning knew his team needed a first down without a scoring a touchdown at the end of this past Sunday’s game against the Cowboys. So he told running back Knowshon Moreno to get the first, but don’t score. The only problem is that he has to cross the one yard line to get it.
“He basically was asking me, ‘How am I supposed to do that? How can I get a half-yard but not get a yard and a half?’ ” said Manning per the Associated Press.
“I just said, ‘You can’t! You can’t score! You can’t do it!’ ”
Of course Moreno ended up getting the job done and they were able to kill the clock out and win.
If Moreno had scored, it would have left plenty of time for Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo to drive down and score a touchdown to send the game to overtime.
