THIS WEEK'S GAME

The Denver Broncos (2-2) travel to the East Coast to take on the Baltimore Ravens (3-1) on Sunday. Kickoff at M&T Bank Stadium is set for 11 a.m. MDT.

QUICK HITS

  • The Denver Broncos are in their sixth decade of professional football with a 413-369-10 (.528) combined record. They have the eighth-most wins among AFL/NFL franchises since 1960.
  • Denver finished with a 93-67 (.581) regular-season record during the 2000s to mark its third consecutive decade with 90 or more victories -- the only team in the NFL to accomplish that feat during the last three decades.
  • Head Coach Josh McDaniels and General Manager Brian Xanders made several key acquisitions during the offseason, including the signing of three-time Pro Bowler Jamal Williams, hometown product Justin Bannan (University of Colorado) and secondary specialist Nate Jones.

OFFENSE: Kyle Orton has totaled at least 300 passing yards in three consecutive games and owns the second-most passing yards (1,419) through a season’s first four games in NFL history. The Broncos have produced two 100-yard receivers in each of their last two games—the third time in franchise history the team has had a pair of 100-yard receivers in back-to-back games.

DEFENSE: Robert Ayers leads the team with four tackles for a loss and seven
quarterback hurries.

SPECIAL TEAMS: Matt Prater owns the franchise’s best career field goal percentage (81.8% / 63-of-77) with the club (min. 50 att.) and has made 27 of his last 28 field goal attempts dating to the beginning of November 2009. His 96.3 percent success rate during that span ranks second in the NFL.
