Washington played to a 21-7 lead, but the Broncos, led by former Indy Colt Peyton Manning, answered with a 21-point surge to tie the game, then pulled ahead to win 45 to 21.
Once again, it was a game of Peyton Manning v Peyton Manning. Manning was responsible for four turnovers (three interceptions and one fumble), but great play-calling and execution caused him to throw four touchdowns and for 354 yards.
And let's not forget that he was helped by the Denver Defense. The Broncos are 7-1, but not the leader in the tough AFC West. The Kansas City Chiefs are undefeated at 8 and 0.
By contrast, the Washington Redskins now sit at 2 and 5 but one has to ask if Head Coach Mike Shanahan could have designed a better game plan.
At points, when your team has an obvious lead, it's time to use the no-huddle offense to add more points, but Mike doesn't do that.
What caused Denver to get back into the game so quickly was their version of the up-tempo system and great play design, as well as a defense that could make timely stops.
