ENGLEWOOD, Colo. – Entering the fourth quarter of Sunday’s game against the Redskins, the Broncos trailed 21-14.
We were down 21-7, we put our defense in a really tough spot with two turnovers back-to-back,” Manning said after the game. “The defense played great the entire game. We gave them an easy 14 points there. I thought that was critical to answer. I knew we couldn’t get it all in one play, Washington was trying to make us go the distance.
“We had four possessions in the first half, all of them were 80-plus, some of them even 90-plus yard drives if we had scored. So we knew at halftime we were going to have to go the long haul. And we did.”
The Moment of the Week is the best moment or play of the week that represents determination and perseverance.

Seattle safety Earl Thomas rounds out the group of nominees as he was a crucial part of the Seahawks’ goal-line stand that preserved the win Monday night in St. Louis.
The Broncos won the award in Week 5 for the team’s 51-48 win in Dallas.
