The Broncos’ 31-point fourth quarter outburst was assisted by a Redskins offense that couldn’t do anything right.
On their sixth fourth quarter possessions, the Redskins were forced to punt twice and threw four straight interceptions to end the game. The first two were heaved into the air by quarterback Robert Griffin III while the final two came from quarterback ... Read More
