The Washington Redskins broke the 17-point barrier for the first time this season and ended a four-game losing streak with a 27-17 victory over the Denver Broncos on Sunday.
The Broncos lost their third straight and had to play the second half with Chris Simms at quarterback after Kyle Orton left with an ankle injury.
Denver (6-3) has struggled since opening the season with six wins.
Ladell Betts scored on a 1-yard run with 2:44 to play. With Clinton Portis sidelined after suffering a concussion in last week's loss at Atlanta, Betts made his first start since 2006 and ran for 114 yards on 26 carries.
Jason Campbell completed 17 of 26 passes for 193 yards for the Redskins (3-6). The 27-point outburst was their greatest since Week 2 of last season.
