The Denver Broncos are 9-3 for a reason.
On offense, they've been balanced and on defense they have been aggressive and made big plays.
Since John Fox took over as head coach, the Broncos have scored 12 non-offensive touchdowns, with the defense and special teams creating big plays each week. On offense, the team has scored 349 points this season (the third-most in the NFL behind only Houston's 351 and New England's 430).
Obviously, the team is doing something right.
"You’re in this to win. It’s only fun when you win," Fox said. "You try to bring that culture or that environment to the team. Mr. Bowlen does a great job. Our players are treated very well, from the training room to the food we feed them. There’s a championship environment here and has been. So you just kind of feed off of that, and that’s what you do.”
If they keep winning, their fourth-seed playoff position will improve. This team knows how to win. On Thursday, they will get yet another chance to prove that on national television.
