Broncos Aim to Extend Win Streak in Rare Visit to Nation’s Capital


The Denver Broncos will be looking to claim their first victory in Washington since 1998 when they visit the Redskins on Sunday for a Week 16 contest at FedExField. The 5-9 Broncos are coming off a 25-13 win over Indianapolis as 2.5-point chalk last week on Thursday Night Football, while the Redskins recorded a 20-15 win over Arizona as 4-point chalk in their second straight victory on home turf.
