WATCH: Patience pays off on beautiful Royce Freeman TD run

This run you’re about to see from Royce Freeman first looked like it would be a busted play. But thanks to some great patience, it turned into a touchdown for the Denver Broncos.

When Freeman received the third down pitch, it looked as though the Kansas City Chiefs had the play read. But Freeman’s blockers eventually came through to open up a small hole. That was all he needed.

That was a big run. If he had been stuffed, the Broncos likely would have had to settle for a field goal. Instead, Denver evened the game against the high-powered Chiefs.
