It was all there for the Washington Redskins.
They had a 21-7 lead on the road in Denver. They had bottled up Peyton Manning and company since the Broncos’ first possession. They had turned over Manning on consecutive possessions and turned both into TDs. The crowd at Sports Authority Field was stunned.
But the Broncos scored 38 unanswered points, knocked Robert Griffin III out of the game and the Redskins dreams of scoring a huge upset win were gone.
