Not only did Allen hurdle a defender but used his momentum to barrel through another for the score.

GIF: Keenan Allen's Hurdling Touchdown Last Night was Amazing

The San Diego Chargers upset the Denver Broncos last night on the road during Thursday Night Football 27-20. Rookie receiving sensation Keenan Allen scored twice for San Diego, upping his TD total to seven on the season and inching closer to 1,000 yards. His first touchdown was a thing of absolute beauty and one of the most stylish yet powerful scores of the year.

Allen came across the middle and caught an intermediate pass in stride from Philip Rivers with room to run. He built up steam as two Broncos defenders closed in on him near the goal line. That's when this happened (via GIFDsports):

Allen rose like a phoenix to hurdle over the first defender. He then crashed into the second defender, using his momentum to knock him backwards and cross the threshold for the score. Let's watch that from a different angle (via Buzzfeed Sports):

Just wow. Plays like that are why the Chargers are still in the playoff hunt and why Allen is a serious candidate for Offensive Rookie of the Year in the NFL.
