The Denver Broncos (7-1) fell behind the (2-5) Washington Redskins by a score of 21-7 and then they woke up. What followed was a Bronco stampede of 38 unanswered points to steamroll the Redskins, 45-21.
The Redskins learned that even when Peyton Manning has an off-week, he is still a very dangerous opponent. Manning ended the day throwing an uncharacteristic three INTs, the 2nd of which was returned by Redskins DB DeAngelo Hall for a TD, but he also connected for TDs with four separate receivers.
Robert Griffin III had troubles of his own throwing two INTS and 232 yards passing against the stiff Bronco secondary.
