Denver, CO (SportsNetwork.com) - Peyton Manning had four touchdown passes and
the Denver Broncos used a dominating second half to take a 45-21 win over the
Washington Redskins on Sunday.
Manning went 30-for-44 for 354 yards, but also had three interceptions and
lost a fumble for the Broncos (7-1), who bounced back from last week's loss in
Knowshon Moreno, Wes Welker, Demaryius Thomas and Joel Dreessen each caught a
score for Denver, which remains a game back of Kansas City for the top spot in
the AFC West.
Robert Griffin III had a real tough day under center as he was just 15-for-30
for 132 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions for the Redskins (2-5), who
were coming off an impressive win against Chicago and looking for their first
two-game winning streak of the season.
The game saw the homecoming of former Denver and current Washington head coach
Mike Shanahan. He had coach the Broncos from 1995-2008 and won two Super Bowls
with the club before being fired at the end of the 2008 season.
