Closing The Book On Week 2 , Part 1 -- Fun With Numbers

New, comments

Two weeks down and our Broncos find themselves atop the AFC West, a familar position at this point of the season.  The Broncos have won 10 striaght September games and now must do what it takes to avoid a late season swoon.  The schedule makers haven't done the Broncos any favors, with 4 of the next 5 games at home, and it is very important the Broncos pocket some victories at home to ease the pressure a bit later in the season on the road.
