Peyton Manning is just toying with everyone these days. Even the damned camera guys.
Manning capped off another brilliant half of football with a play that no one — not the 11 Dallas Cowboys defenders, not the fans, nor the announcers or the camera guy — in the House That Jerry Built saw coming.

With everyone suspecting Manning would throw to one of his brilliant receivers, which would have upped his TD pass total to 20 (without an interception), he instead pulled off a little trickery with a naked bootleg run for a score to put the Broncos up 28-17 on the Cowboys.

It was Manning's first rushing touchdown since Week 8 of the 2008 season, and only the 18th of his career. And in this brilliant season, that score was also his most surprising.
