Broncos vs. Redskins Reaction: Peyton Manning a Warrior, Robert Griffin III Horrendous
In what was labeled as “America’s Game of the Week,” the Denver Broncos got off to a slow start against the Washington Redskins. By the time the final whistle blew, however, the Broncos had scored 38 straight points to take a commanding victory in what was a huge blowout.
Side note: Before this game was over, three quarterbacks had thrown at least two interceptions. Peyton Manning, Robert Griffin III and Kirk Cousins who was substituted late in the game all threw a pair of picks, with Manning tossing three — quite the bizarre stat.
When it came to a post game reaction, all I could think about was how Manning looked human today. But, then I remembered he was playing on two sprained ankles. It’s tough to criticize one of the greatest of all time after he tossed three picks but also played with that type of injury.
Overall, Manning had a typical day in the yardage and touchdown department. And, by typical I mean a modest 354 yards and four touchdowns — nothing out of the ordinary for a season such as this. For Manning to gather his teammates and play such a remarkable game when it was all said and done, his performance and heart on that field was nothing short of extraordinary.
On the flip side, Griffin III played a poor game all around. Finishing with a total QBR of just 7.5, Griffin III went 15-for-30 with 132 yards, one touchdown and two picks on the day. He was also sacked three times for a total of 26 yards lost — which for the most part could be attributed to not getting rid of the ball when he was supposed to.
Griffin III ran five times for just seven yards and on a few of those runs looked completely lost, not to mention throwing his body around recklessly like we saw him do a year ago so many times. It was almost as if he completely disregarded any common sense and forgot about the past nine months of recovery and rehabilitation he went through due to his immature style of play.
Week eight’s game of the week played out in a way many thought would happen, for the most part. Manning was spectacular overall while Griffin III again proved he is not 100 percent back to the guy he used to be, nor does he have the wherewithal to make all the best decisions.
