Richardson scored 11 of his 12 touchdowns last season as a runner, but the one that came as a receiver may have been the best of the bunch. The play started out innocently enough as Richardson slipped into the flat and caught a checkdown pass from Brandon Weeeden. From there, Richardson took it to another level.

Leon Hall was the first victim as he bounced off Richardson attempting to go low for a tackle. A cut inside not only sent Rey Maualuga looking for his jockstrap, but he also crashed into Vontaze Burfict. With one move, Richardson took out three Bengal defenders, not too bad. Jeromy Miles was next in line, but he received a baby stiff arm and decided to watch the rest of the play from the comfort of the field turf.

Nate Clements said forget the tackle let's go for the strip, but that proved to be futile as well. A spin move later Clements joined his teammates on the turf as Richardson ran into the endzone.

It's not every day you see a player go 86 yards without even being touched, but most players don't have the speed of Jamaal Charles.

He got to the edge with ease and cut upfield without a Colt defender touching him. Charles then cut back into the middle of the field and proceeded to weave his way through the remaining 75 yards with several Indianapolis defenders attempting to run him down. The touchdown was impressive enough that even a Colts fan in the crowd decided to celebrate with Charles.
