Broncos-Jaguars: Inside The Numbers

Share/Bookmark

Champ Bailey

The Numbers have been crunched for the Week 6 meeting between the (5-0) Denver Broncos and the (0-5) Jacksonville Jaguars.

Tied atop the AFC West with 5-0 records, the Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs are two of three remaining undefeated teams in 2013. If both win this Sunday, it would mark the second time since the divisional structure was implemented in 1933 that two teams in the same division started 6-0.

In 1934, the Detroit Lions and Chicago Bears, then members of the NFL’s Western Division, each started 10-0. Chicago finished 13-0 before losing the 1934 NFL Championship game by a score of 30-13 to the New York Giants. The Lions (10-3) finished second in the Western Division.

Denver has won 16 consecutive regular-season games, tied for the fifth-longest streak in NFL history. With a victory against Jacksonville this Sunday, the Broncos would tie the 1933-34 Chicago Bears for the 4th longest streak in NFL annals. The 2008-09 Indianapolis Colts, who were also quarterbacked by Peyton Manning, won an NFL-record 23 consecutive regular-season games.
