Denver Broncos vs Washington Redskins takes place on Sunday afternoon in Week 8 of the NFL 2013 regular season. The Broncos suffered their first defeat of the season last week against Peyton Manning's old team the Indianapolis Colts, and they will be urgent to bounce back quickly and get back on the winning path again. The Redskins meanwhile claimed a fantastic win last week, and will want to use the momentum gained to pull off another even bigger shock today. The game will start at 4.25 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
The Broncos lost on the road to Indianapolis last week, posting their lowest points total so far this season – although it was still a respectable 33 points.
Their defense though was one again badly shown up, and this time they didn't have Peyton Manning and their offense to rescue them and dig them out of the mess. In their previous six games, Manning and co. had been able to annihilate opposition defenses, but last week they found themselves up against a well-organized Colts' defense that managed to limit Manning's effectiveness.
They must tighten up in defense if they are to allow Manning the best opportunity to win games for them.
The Broncos have given up the sole ownership of the top position of the AFC West to the Kansas City Chiefs who are 7-0, and they will know to keep pace with them they must win today.
Manning is 207 of 289 for 2,565 yards and 25 touchdowns. He will not be changing his game plan much and will surely look to continue utilizing his talented receiver team.
The Broncos must give Manning better protection though, and he was sacked numerous times last week as the Denver blockers were unable to hold off the hard working Colts.
The Redskins had probably their best week of the season so far last week, scoring 45 points in a 45-41 win over the Chicago Bears. That was only their second win of the season and at 2-4 they will be urgent to use the momentum from that win to secure a second straight win today.
