Redskins vs. Broncos: 8 Takeaways from Denver's 45-21 Victory over Washington

The Denver Broncos will enter their bye with a victory after defeating the Washington Redskins, 45-21, at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.

A week after losing to the Indianapolis Colts in Peyton Manning's return to Indy, the Broncos struggled throughout the first half to move the football—before scoring 38 straight points in the second half to put away the Redskins.

Down 21-7 in the middle of the third quarter after two Manning turnovers, the Broncos ran roughshod over Washington's defense and Robert Griffin III. Griffin was pressured relentlessly all game long. He was sacked three times, and the Redskins turned the ball over five times.

The Broncos will enter Week 9 at 7-1, the second-best record in the NFL, just behind their AFC West rivals, the Kansas City Chiefs, who moved to 8-0 after an afternoon victory over the Cleveland Browns.
