2016 Broncos-Titans Week 14: By The Numbers

Share/Bookmark

den_ten

With four weeks to go in the NFL regular season, the (8-4) Denver Broncos head eastbound for an 11:00 am MT meeting with the (6-6) Titans this Sunday at Nissan Stadium in Nashville, Tennessee.

A 51-yard ‘Pick-Six’ by CB Bradley Roby last week secured a 20-10 road win against the Jaguars and keep Denver in the playoff hunt in a tough AFC West division. The Titans are fresh off their Bye Week and sit in a 3-way tie for 1st place in the AFC South (Texans, Colts).

CBS has the Broadcast, so you will want to mute Ian Eagle (play-by-play), Dan Fouts (color analyst) and Evan Washburn (sideline).

In the last meeting (12/8/13), the Broncos defeated the Titans 51-28 in Denver as Peyton Manning threw for 397 yards and 4 Touchdowns. In 37 series meetings (including the Oilers), the Broncos are 15-21-1 overall and a 6-14 Away record.
