Stats! Broncos or Manning close to some more obscure yet impressive records

I love stats so much. They keep me warm at night when the snow is falling outside. So I find myself constantly perusing through NFL records for fun. In doing so, I recently discovered that the Broncos are closing in on some team records and of course Peyton is chasing some individual records.

Obvious records we have heard about repeatedly, with my guess on the probability of tying or breaking the record:

I have been tracking some streaks the team and Peyton are currently on and just added a couple of new ones. While looking at the NFL team records for yards in a season, I noticed the record for consecutive games with 300+ total team yards and 350+ total team yards. It seamed to me that the Broncos regularly exceed 350 yards and the record was only 17 straight games with 350+ yards (set by the Patriots in recent years). So I went back through every Broncos game. Since Peyton took over as the starting QB for the Broncos, the Broncos have had over 300 total yards every single game - 28 straight games and counting. The record? A mere 36 set by the Vikings about 10 years ago. I don't think the Broncos even had under 330 yards during the last 2 seasons. The last game under 300 yard game? The last game with Tim Tebow at the helm. How about 350+ yard games? It should come as no surprise that we have passed that threshold every game this season. The last time we failed to gain 350 yards was against Tampa Bay last year. So we are now at 16 consecutive games - 1 short of tying the Patriots record. Here are some other team records I have been tracking.

If Peyton comes back next year and throws a TD in every game (assuming he throws one every game this year), he will break the consecutive games with a TD record in the last game of the season. Even if we do not win it all, we are still experiencing first hand one of the most prolific offenses and quarterbacks in NFL history. I will simply enjoy the rest of the regular season and not worry about the playoffs until it is here.
Go Broncos!
