INDIANAPOLIS -- The Washington Redskins knocked Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning around pretty well in the second quarter yesterday at the RCA Dome, ripping off his helmet on one play and tackling him from behind his knees on another. Manning even seemed a little woozy at one point.

Once Manning regained his balance, and the pinpoint passing with which he began the game, Washington never really had a chance. With his team trailing by one point at halftime, Manning led the unbeaten Colts on three quick touchdown drives in the third quarter that sent the reeling Redskins to a resounding 36-22 defeat.
