Instead of just powering forward for the first down, he came almost to a complete stop and wound up short when he tried to get a little too cute.
Just seemed like after the first quarter he was visibly different, more tentative. I wonder what his mindset was heading into this game, it's possible he thought that the weaknesses of the Broncos defense lend toward him just being patient and waiting for an "accidental" hole to develop. Either way it didn't end up working, but this is the first and only time this year I'd seen him run so visibly tentative almost like he was hurt.
