The Denver Broncos picked up a huge win against their division rival Kansas City Chiefs that put the Broncos in sole possession of the division lead in the AFC West. Peyton Manning and Eric Decker had big games, but running back Knowshon Moreno grabbed headlines for completely different reasons.

The Denver Broncos running back was crying on the Denver sideline during the National Anthem and that caused an uproar on Twitter. Either way, Knowshon explained why he was sobbing yesterday:

"The emotion always gets to me. I am just thinking about everything in general through your whole life, just balled up into one. Yeah, it helps me. Sometimes I don't even notice it, it just comes."

Moreno's teammate and fellow running back Montee Ball put a different spin on it:

"The [tears] are actually toughness. I see it all the time. He does it in practice and he does it in games. It is all heart, it is his passion for the game. It is massive. We all feed off that energy. A lot of stuff sets him off. He just brings that energy when we need it."

As long as the Broncos keep winning, Moreno can keep crying all he wants. Somebody get him a tissue.
