Denver, CO ( - Peyton Manning had four touchdown passes and the Denver Broncos used a dominating second half to take a 45-21 win over the Washington Redskins on Sunday.

Manning went 30-for-44 for 354 yards, but also had three interceptions and lost a fumble for the Broncos (7-1), who bounced back from last week's loss in Indianapolis.

Knowshon Moreno, Wes Welker, Demaryius Thomas and Joel Dreessen each caught a score for Denver, which remains a game back of Kansas City for the top spot in the AFC West.

Robert Griffin III had a real tough day under center as he was just 15-for-30 for 132 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions for the Redskins (2-5), who were coming off an impressive win against Chicago and looking for their first two-game winning streak of the season.

The game saw the homecoming of former Denver and current Washington head coach Mike Shanahan. He had coach the Broncos from 1995-2008 and won two Super Bowls with the club before being fired at the end of the 2008 season.
