The Washington Redskins and the Denver Broncos are playing one of the most anticipated games of the season on Sunday in Week 8 and it will have Robert Griffin and company visiting Peyton Manning and the Broncos in a game that will start at 4:25 PM on Fox and will be at Sports Authority Field at Mile High and the game will be streaming online on the NFL.com website live stream.
Griffin comes into the game after playing a shootout last week with nearly 300 yards passing in a win against the Chicago Bears and while the defense wasn't great against Chicago, the offense was very productive and now the team will face off against a great Broncos offense, but they give up plenty of yards and this game on Sunday could be something like the shootout that Denver played two against the Cowboys recently as they have another AFC West and NFC East showdown after already playing the Eagles, Cowboys and the Giants and now they have the Redskins. The Broncos have been off to a great start and despite losing to the Colts, they are looked at as one of the favorites out of the conference, while the Redskins are trying to work their way back into things with a win against Denver.
Peyton Manning opened the season with a record stretch of offense and he had seven touchdowns in the game against the Ravens and he went for 20 before tossing his first interception and now he has the inside track to the MVP with 25 touchdowns this season and the team is now up against the 22nd ranked passing defense in the Redskins. Washington has been giving up a ton of yards and that could be trouble for the Skins on Sunday with Peyton Manning playing against them and they have given up over 260 yards per game this season and they have been even worse against the run, allowing the 29th worth with over 120 yards per game.
The Broncos give up some yards as well due to the fact that they have been off to mostly big leads and they are ranked first in rushing yards allowed with less than 80 per game and they will have a tough test with Roy Helu as well as Alfred Morris and the team is looking to do their usual of over 360 yards per game in the air. Griffin will be ready to ball as well and he has a defense coming that gives up over 300 yards per game and the team is ranked best in the league for rushing defense for the fact that they had teams switch off the rush with leads.
The Broncos have a tough schedule coming up with the San Diego Chargers out of the bye week and then they have games that will help decide the division in the Kansas City Chiefs and they have a home and away game against the undefeated team with the Patriots in the middle and obviously that will be a tough test as well. The team then plays home games against the Titans and then against the Chargers and the season ends with road games against the Houston Texans and the Oakland Raiders. The Redskins have some tough games as well, including an MNF matchup on ESPN and then they have another night game against the New York Giants and the team also has matchups with the Atlanta Falcons, Cowboys, Eagles and the Chiefs later in the season.
