Your Tuesday morning open thread:

Early in season it looked like Peyton Manning's Denver Broncos were unbeatable. Now, not so much.

The Cowboys were a Tony Romo pick away from having a shot at beating the Broncos early this month. Then the lowly Jaguars, who were four-touchdown underdogs, were within two points at 21-19 midway through the third quarter. And then on Sunday night, Andrew Luck and the Colts knocked Denver from the ranks of the undefeated with a 39-33 win.

The Colts got pressure on Manning, sacking him four times (he'd been sacked just five times in six games leading up to that one). They ran the ball pretty well, gaining 120 yards on the ground. Perhaps the key stat was that they took the ball away three times. One of those takeaways set up a one-play touchdown drive, another one took plays near the goal line. Luck was efficient throwing the ball but not prolific (21 of 38 for 228 yards and three TDs).

Can the Redskins get a road map to beating the Broncos from the Colts?
