In the battle of the quarterbacks, Peyton Manning has a clear advantage for the Broncos. He has completed more passes for more yards than Robert Griffin III. Although sacks were a big problem for Manning last week, Griffin has been sacked more often.
Alfred Morris of the Redskins and Knowshon Moreno of the Broncos are the favorite rushers on their respective teams. Each has more than 90 attempts, but Morris has more yards on fewer runs. Redskins quarterback RG III is actually their second best.
The Broncos have three receivers with more catches than Pierre Gargon, the best the Redskins have to offer. Arguably, Eric Decker is Manning's best target and he has 42 catches for 627 yards.
Perry Riley poses a danger to the Broncos offense as he has participated in more tackles than any player the Broncos have. Danny Trevathan may be the Broncos' top defender.
Although Broncos returner Trindon Holliday is stronger than Chris Thompson in most statistical categories, many Broncos fans are concerned after two fumbles in the game at Indianapolis last week. Thompson has no fumbles this year.
