I've noticed that when predators run fast to get their prey, they 
usually tackle it, not just run up to it and bite it's neck.  I think 
that it's highly likely that a T. rex would fall if it ran quickly up 
to it's prey and lunged at its neck (or wherever) and that's just the 
sort of thing it wouldn't want to do.  So, even if it did run, how 
did it kill its prey?
