Wonder what the Broncos' magic number under Josh McDaniels might be? Think 20.When the Broncos have given up less than 20 points under McDaniels, they have not lost. However, each time the Broncos have given up more than 20 points under McDaniels, they have lost except on one occasion when they gave up 23 points and went on to win--mostly because the Broncos put up 34 points that game.
Furthermore, when the Broncos score more than 20 points, they are 8-2 under McDaniels. The two losses when the Broncos scored 20 or more came when they gave up 30 and 44 points respectively. It's simple math for the Broncos under McDaniels. When the Broncos score more than 20 and hold the opponent under 20, the Broncos' chances of victory become great.
