The Broncos were the only team in the NFL in 2012 that did not allow a single 300-yard passer.
Denver’s 38-3 win against Kansas City coupled with Indianapolis’ 28-16 win against Houston meant the Broncos finished with the AFC’s No. 1 playoff seed and tied for the NFL’s best regular-season record in 2012, finishing 13-3.
Quarterback Peyton Manning finished the season with Broncos records in completions (400), passing yards (4,659), completion percentage (68.6 pct.), touchdowns (37), passer rating (105.9) and 300-yard games (9).
The Broncos are one of just three teams in NFL history to win 11 consecutive games by seven or more points. Denver joins the 1942 Chicago Bears (11) and the 2005 Indianapolis Colts (13) as the only teams to accomplish that feat. Manning was the signal caller for two of those three teams.
Wide receivers Eric Decker and Demaryius Thomas each topped the 1,000-yard mark in 2012 to become just the fifth 1,000-yard receiving tandem in Broncos history.
The Broncos swept the AFC West in 2012, marking just the second time in franchise history the team accomplished that feat (1998).
Denver’s 11-straight wins to end the regular-season represents the second-longest winning streak in team history.
Decker caught two touchdowns against the Chiefs on Sunday to finish the year with 13 receiving scores. That figure ranks second in the NFL in 2012.
Denver’s 13 regular-season wins are the most ever for Head Coach John Fox.
Linebacker Von Miller extended his own single-season franchise sack record with a quarterback takedown of Chiefs quarterback Brady Quinn on Sunday. He finished the season with 18.5, topping the mark set by Elvis Dumervil (17) in 2009.
Decker’s two touchdowns on Sunday gave him 21 in the past two seasons, which are the most by a Broncos player in a two-year span.
The Broncos held the Chiefs to just 26 net passing yards on Sunday, to mark the fewest any NFL team allowed in the 2012 season.
For the second year in a row, punter Britton Colquitt set a franchise record for net punting average. He totaled 67 punts for a 42.1-yard net average, which topped the mark he set last season of 40.2 yards.
Fox earned his 100th career win as an NFL head coach with Denver’s 38-3 victory against the Chiefs on Sunday.
Manning’s 144.8 passer rating against the Chiefs was the highest by an AFC passer this season.
The Broncos outgained Kansas City 488 to 119 in total yardage. The 369-yard differential was the third-best in franchise history.
Thomas finished Sunday’s win with seven catches for 122 yards and one touchdown for his seventh 100-yard game of the year. His 1,434 receiving yards this season rank fourth in the NFL and are the third-most in Broncos history.
