The Denver Broncos' Eric Decker worked his way through traffic, breaking tackles as he went on his way to a 47-yard punt return in the second quarter Sunday. When he finally got past the defense, he got tripped up—by the ground.

Decker likely would have scored had he been able to stay on his feet.

Stupid turf monster.
