Broncos RBs played rock-paper-scissors for TD-scoring right

On Monday night Peyton Manning handled most of the scoring for the Broncos. But one touchdown came via the run, with Ronnie Hillman plunging in for a one-yard score.

But Hillman only got to score thanks to a game of sideline rock-paper-scissors between he, Montee Ball and Knowshon Moreno. No, really: Gray Caldwell of writes that after Hillman was a yards short on the previous play, the three huddled on the sideline and handled things in the most manly of fashions.

"We were just messing around on the sideline," Hillman said. "Just something to do. Have fun."

According to Hillman, he went rock, while Moreno and Ball went scissors.

"Luckily I won," Hillman said. "So it all worked out."

Everyone on the Broncos won, really. But it's fascinating to find out that a) there's some sort of touchdown-scoring democracy on the Broncos sideline and b) guessing who will get the red-zone carries for Denver is literally harder than a coin flip.

Manning, for his part, had no idea who he might be handing the ball to.

“I'm confused ... huh," Manning said when asked about the contest. "I didn't know that. I didn't know that."

Of course the most confusing thing of all is whether or not they tried to play a three-man game of RPS. If that's the case Odd Man Out is much more appropriate. Although less fun.

Whatever, rock still sinks boat.
