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.

NFL power rankings, Week 10: 49ers are struggggggglin

Nov 4 2014 7:30am CST | Source: ninersnation

I'm back for even more scrutiny with my Week 10 NFL power rankings. The 49ers came out of their bye week and the offense laid an egg against the Rams, resulting in a power rankings drop. Who else should be moved up or down? The San Francisco 49ers returned to action this past Sunday, and it was not pretty. They lost 13-10 to the St. Louis Rams, and find themselves having to figure out where exactly things stand with the offense. There is a lot of football left to be played, but ...

Wes Welker 'looks like a shell of the player' he was with Patriots

Nov 3 2014 4:13pm CST | Source: milehighreport

Wes Welker is showing his age and/or injury history, writes Grantland's Bill Barnwell. Week 9 NFL Wrap-up: The Hunger Games [ESPN/Grantland] Welker's subpar day is worth mentioning. He had three catches for 31 yards on eight targets, including an interception on a pass he should have caught but instead tipped into the air. Welker took a nasty hit on that interception, suffering a back injury that consigned him to the sideline for the remainder of the gam ...

Buzz: Both Thomases Will Be Back in Denver, Wes Welker Odd Man out Next Season

The Denver Broncos are having another strong season offensively. With wide receivers Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders along with tight end Julius Thomas, Peyton Manning has a number of weapons to utilize. One weapon who's been missing this season in terms of productivity has been Wes Welker. After being suspended to start the season, Welker hasn't had much of an impact since returning to the team. Are Welker's day ...

Peyton Manning: 'I stunk'

Nov 3 2014 10:47am CST | Source: milehighreport

"I don't usually stink, but I stunk today," said the Broncos quarterback following his team's 21-43 loss to the Patriots Sunday. Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning "stunk" Sunday (his words). In the 16th battle between him and Tom Brady, Manning's words sting worse than Gillette Stadium's cold, swirly wind.  It adds to the narratives: Manning can't play in the cold; Manning chokes in big games, while Brady excels in t ...
