Peyton Manning is one of the greatest quarterbacks of all-time. In fact, he's in most people's top-3. However, one part of his game that was certainly not a strength was his ability to run the ball. While guys like Lamar Jackson, Russell Wilson, Deshaun Watson and Patrick Mahomes are putting the days of the pocket quarterback in the rearview mirror, Manning was the definition of it.
Although, 18 years as an NFL starting quarterback is a long time and there were bound to be some surprises in there. Manning did indeed have a couple of decent runs in his career. The longest of which was 33 yards and came in 2001 against the Buffalo Bills.
Manning faked the handoff and turned around to a clear lane to the end zone, beating out the Bills' defenders for a touchdown.
This was not a typical play from Peyton, but he was a quarterback who took what the defense gave him and on this play, that was 33 yards of running room and a touchdown.
