The Denver Broncos scored 38 straight points to beat the Washington Redskins 45-21 on Sunday despite four Peyton Manning turnovers.

The Denver Broncos beat the Washington Redskins 45-21 on Sunday despite four Peyton Manning turnovers. 

The Broncos scored 38 unanswered points in the second half to overcome a 21-7 deficit in the third quarter to secure their seventh win in eighth games. Denver actually established an early 7-0 lead on a six-yard touchdown reception courtesy of Wes Welker in the first quarter.

However, the Redskins scored three straight touchdowns within the second and third quarters -- punctuated by a DeAngelo Hall 26-yard interception return -- to go up by 14.

The Broncos then went on a scoring binge with five different players registering touchdowns in a 20-minute span to put the game away.

Rookie running back Montee Ball scored on a four-yard run before Joel Dreessen hauled in a one-yard pass from Manning. Knowshon Moreno caught a 35-yard pass, Matt Prater kicked a 19-yard field goal, Demaryius Thomas caught a 35-yard pass of his own and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie picked off Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III for a 75-yard return for a touchdown to finish off the scoring.

Despite his three interceptions and one lost fumble, Manning wound up with 354 yards and four touchdown passes. The Broncos defense forced a season-high five turnovers to help offset his rare, mistake-filled game.   

Manning said,"That stuff happens in football. We haven't had a ton of that, but the fact we were able to overcome it was critical." 

Redskins coach Mike Shanahan, who coached on the opposing sideline in Denver for the first time since the Broncos fired him five years ago, expressed his disappointment.  

"I was just disappointed. We were up 21-7. All we had to do was get a couple drives offensively going, keep Denver off the field, and we could have dictated the outcome of the game.

"But a credit to them. They found a way to get us off the field, and they kept a couple drives going -- third and fourth downs, making plays, and you can't win football games when you have five turnovers in the game." 

Griffin finished with just 132 yards on 15-of-30 passing with one touchdown and two interceptions. Redskins running back Alfred Morris had 93 yards and a touchdown. 

While the Broncos remained undefeated at home (5-0), the Redskins slipped to 1-3 on the road and 2-5 overall.
