The Denver Broncos reach the first-quarter mark of the NFL season as arguably the best team in the NFL. So far, Peyton Manning and company have looked nearly unstoppable on offense. The Broncos defense is playing well despite missing Champ Bailey due to an injury and Von Miller due to a suspension.
Through four games the team is undefeated, and they’re setting offensive records each week. Manning has 16 touchdown passes this year with zero interceptions, and the Broncos have scored more points in four games than all but one team in NFL history.
Broncos head coach John Fox doesn’t pay attention to the stats.
Really the only stat that’s important to me and anybody in that locker room is those W’s and whatever it takes. Each week is a new test, what you did last week has no bearing. We just have to get into the Dallas Cowboys now.
With this high-powered offense, a defense that plays well with the lead and a special teams unit that is among the best in the league, the Broncos sit atop the AFC West with many considering them the favorite to win the AFC.
Let’s take a look at each position on the roster and hand out grades for their performance so far.
