ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- Individually, their numbers don't look like much. Collectively, the Broncos running backs are getting much closer to giving Peyton Manning the help he needs.
For the first time in four weeks, no Denver running back fumbled. Meanwhile, Knowshon Moreno, Montee Ball and the newest addition to the Broncos running rotation, C.J. Anderson, combined for 192 yards in offense to help Denver top Washington 45-21 on Sunday.
All of that is a good sign for a team that heads into its bye this week and will return in November, when the weather starts getting cold and passing games around the league tend to cool off, as well.
