The Broncos would not be undefeated if not for Moreno. The Broncos' first-round draft pick in 2009, Moreno in his first three seasons and two games into his fourth had averaged a disappointing 50.5 rushing yards per game. The Broncos' coaching staff thought so much of Moreno after a fumble in an early-season loss to Atlanta last season, they took away his uniform. When the Broncos meet Jacksonville on Sunday at Sports Authority Field at Mile High, Moreno will be the hot back in a game that also will include Maurice Jones-Drew, who only two seasons ago won the NFL rushing title. We noted after the Broncos beat the Cowboys that there was a discussion on the Dallas sideline about whether the Cowboys’ defense should have allowed the Broncos to score a touchdown late in the game.
