Ronnie Hillman wins rock, paper, scissors match to get goal-line touchdown

BY foxsports • September 24, 2013

By Sid Saraf, The Broncos have three capable running backs in Knowshon Moreno, Ronnie Hillman and Montee Ball. So, on Monday night, the team faced quite a pickle with the ball on the 1-yard line in the fourth quarter. Which of the three-headed monster would get to punch the ball into the end zone and make the score 37-14?

So, the running backs did what normal people would do: They played rock, paper, scissors for the carry, according to USA Today. Apparently, Moreno disqualified himself by dropping rock a tad early. So, it came down to Ball and Hillman. Ball showed paper. Hillman came up scissors. We have a winner! On the next play, it was Hillman who plunged into the end zone to officially put the game out of reach. So, in the end, it wasn't the 20 pounds of muscle that Hillman added that got him that carry. It was a simple child's game. Hey, sometimes simple works best. Questions? Comments? Send them to and we might respond in our weekly mailbag!
