Peyton Manning fakes out everyone in AT&T Stadium with bootleg run — even the camera guy

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 focusing on Manning throwing 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.

Did you miss him the first live? Here's another angle to see how the play was pulled off — and how the Cowboys had no clue what had just happened to them.

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.
