The Denver Broncos have had a regular season to remember, and broke a few records in the process.
The Broncos finish the season with a 13-3 record, which is good enough for the No. 1 Seed in the AFC Playoffs, which is good for home-field advantage throughout the playoffs. The records that the offense broke this season have also been remarkable. They have broken team records and individual records. Peyton Manning finished the year with the most touchdown passes in NFL History with 55 touchdowns as well as breaking Drew Brees’ passing-yards mark in a season with 5,477 yards. The record breaking did not stop their in the regular season finale against the Oakland Raiders. The team eclipsed 606 points in the victory, which is the first time a team finished with over 600 points in a season. The Broncos also had five players not named Manning that accumulated 10-plus touchdowns this season, which is a first for any team in any given season. They also averaged 37.9 points a game, which is remarkable for a season.
I believe that this could be the best offense in a football season. With a future Hall of Fame quarterback in Manning, a running back tandem in Knowshon Moreno and Montee Ball, a huge wide receiver core in Demaryius Thomas, Eric Decker and Wes Welker and let us not forget the emerging tight end star Julius Thomas, this is arguably the best group of players in history.
Now with the regular season over, the Broncos can now turn to the playoffs and complete another goal and complete a remarkable season. As long as they can keep this pace up, they can make a lot of noise in January.
