Former Denver Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno had a message for the AFC on opening Sunday.
Look out, I'm coming.
Moreno, now a member of the Miami Dolphins, had one of the best performances of his career Sunday, rushing for 134 yards on 24 carries (5.6 yard average) and a touchdown. He led the Dolphins to a somewhat-shocking 33-20 upset over the New England Patriots.
In typical Moreno fashion, he ground out those yards, enjoying a long of just 15 yards.
The performance gave some Broncos fans a sense of seller's remorse.
@MileHighReport Moreno over 100 yds. Hope we did the right thing— k Gilbert (@karenGilbert5) September 7, 2014

@karenGilbert5 @MileHighReport only so much $... that's the business— Jeremiah Holcomb (@J_E_Holcomb) September 7, 2014
That looks like a TD. Happy for Moreno. Hope his season is as good as this game. Except Week 12.— MileHighReport (@MileHighReport) September 7, 2014
Moreno has been a Patriots-killer since a year ago, when he rushed for over 220 yards against New England with the Broncos. Despite his efforts, Denver lost that game (in overtime, thanks to a number of backup RB fumbles). Again, in typical Moreno fashion, his long was 18 yards.
The Broncos face the Dolphins in Week 12 at home. If healthy, Moreno will be looking for some Mile High revenge.
