So I guess Peyton Manning is pretty good. Last week he sat out the fourth quarter against the 49ers because they were up so big. Philip Rivers always seems to play well against the Broncos so I expect this game to turn into a shootout. Peyton should be good again.
Hopefully for Washington, Griffin is able to suit up. If not, Colt McCoy will get the start and replace the beleaguered Kirk Cousins.

I think Manning will have a solid week, but I would not expect the video game numbers against a Chargers D that is 5th against fantasy quarterbacks the last 5 weeks. Also, 38-year old QBs tend to struggle on short rest and Manning has been average by his standards on Thursday Night the last 2 years.
