Late in the first quarter during the Denver Broncos 42-17 victory over the Dallas Cowboys, C.J. Anderson took a handoff and proceeded to bowl through every defender that tried to put their hands on him.
It was the kind of play that demoralizes a defense and it set a tone for the game that Denver was going to outplay the favored Cowboys.
The drive led to a missed field goal from Brandon McManus, but the outcome of the drive was less important than the message the Broncos offense sent to the Cowboys defense. That’s why this 28-yard run gets my “play of the week” this week.
