ENGLEWOOD, Colo. - Rod Smith sat in the Denver Broncos' locker room, his eyes carefully scanning the pages inside the blue folder that contained the game plan for tomorrow's AFC showdown against the defending Super Bowl champion Ravens. All around him, there was the usual lunch-hour banter between teammates, some of whom were talking with reporters while others took shots at the mini-basketball rim in the middle of the room.

DENVER -- Washington Redskins owner Daniel Snyder stood just inside the doorway, at the front of the reception line, and high-fived every player and coach entering the visiting team's locker room. "How 'bout them Redskins!" Snyder shouted while clapping his hands. "That's four in a row!" Across the previous 3 hours and 40 minutes yesterday, the Redskins won a game they weren't supposed to win, overcoming wintry weather, key injuries and a seven-point deficit in the fourth quarter to beat the Denver Broncos, 17-10, at Invesco Field at Mile High.

If opening week was defense inspired, the NFL's patriotic Week 2 return saw the pendulum swing back toward offense and big plays. The keynotes were sounded by the Indianapolis Colts, who rolled up 555 yards and 42 points against Buffalo, and the Denver Broncos, who scored 38 points in three quarters against Arizona despite not having wide receiver Ed McCaffrey or running back Terrell Davis, both injured. The common denominator was the power of play-action passes. Using a no-huddle offense and the threat of running back Edgerrin James, Colts quarterback Peyton Manning feasted on the Bills' attack defense for 421 yards and four touchdowns passing in a 42-26 romp.
