The storyline
The Colts flirted with a perfect season in 2009, while the Redskins fell to 4-12, but both are 3-2 now.

Why you should watch
Indianapolis' offensive line is looking vulnerable and neither of these teams can run the ball. This could be a good 'ol fashioned battle between Peyton Manning and Donovan McNabb.

Did you know?
The Colts have won six consecutive games against NFC opponents. ... Indianapolis' Reggie Wayne and Austin Collie are the only two teammates in the league with at least 35 receptions. ... McNabb has thrown for 300 yards or more in three straight outings vs. AFC teams. ... In his last two games against Indianapolis, Washington LB London Fletcher has recorded at least 14 tackles.
