Denver Broncos chasing NFL's win streak and scoring records

Maddie Meyer

The Denver Broncos are on pace to break the NFL's scoring single season record and have a shot at breaking the regular season record of 23 consecutive games.

Quarterback Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos have gotten off to a hot start this season. Their start has been so hot that it has us thinking that they may be able to break several NFL records this season.

The Broncos are currently averaging 45 points a game, and while that average will likely lower over the course of the season, it puts them on pace to score 720 points this year, which would be a new NFL record. The current record is 589, which was set by Tom Brady's New England Patriots during the 2007 season.

Meanwhile, the team hasn't lost a regular season game since Week 5 of last season, when they fell to the Patriots, 31-21.  The team is on a thirteen-game win streak dating back to last year, which puts them ten away from tying an NFL record.

From 2008-2009, Manning led the Indianapolis Colts to 23 consecutive regular season wins. If the Broncos can open the 2013 season 12-0, they'll tie that record.

Denver's upcoming opponents are as follows: Oakland Raiders (home), Philadelphia Eagles (home), Dallas Cowboys (away), Jacksonville Jaguars (home), Indianapolis Colts (away), Washington Redskins (home), San Diego Chargers (away), Kansas City Chiefs (home), New England Patriots (away) and the Kansas City Chiefs (away). If the Broncos can go undefeated in those ten games and then knock off the Tennessee Titans the following week at home, they'll have clinched 24-straight wins, marking a new NFL record.

As we getting a little ahead of ourselves? Yes.

But after opening the season 2-0, the sky's the limit for this balanced Broncos team. With that said, the team will take it just "one game at a time," as coach John Fox would say.
