THIS WEEK'S GAME

Coming off a 27-13 loss to the Indianapolis Colts last week, the Denver Broncos (1-2) look to even their record on the season when they travel to Nashville to face the Tennessee Titans (2-1) on Sunday. Kickoff at LP Field is set for 11 a.m. MDT.

QUICK HITS

  • The Denver Broncos are in their sixth decade of professional football with a 412-369-10 (.527) 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 DL Jamal Williams, hometown product DL Justin Bannan (University of Colorado) and secondary specialist CB Nate Jones.

OFFENSE:

Kyle Orton, who leads the NFL with 13 completions of 25+ yards, has totaled the second-most passing yards (1,078) through a season’s first three games in franchise history. Brandon Lloyd ranks second in the NFL in receiving yards (339) and receiving average (24.2) after recording his sixth-career 100-yard receiving game against the Colts last week (6-169, 28.2 avg., TD).

DEFENSE:

Denver’s defense ranks fifth in the AFC in opponent rushing average (3.7 ypc) and sixth in the conference in rushing yards per game allowed (94.3).

SPECIAL TEAMS:

Matt Prater owns the franchise’s best career field goal percentage (80.8% / 59-of-73) with the club (min. 50 att.) and has made 23 of his last 24 field goal attempts dating to the beginning of November 2009. His 95.7 percent success rate during that span ranks third in the NFL.

BRONCOS AT TITANS -- POINTS OF INTEREST

The Broncos will square off this Sunday against one of their least-common conference opponents...

Since the Titans organization moved from Houston to Tennessee in 1997, the Broncos have faced them on the road just once—a 37-16 win on Christmas Day in 2004... Now in their sixth decade of professional football in 2010, the Broncos are one of just four teams to record three 90+ win decades since 1960 and the only organization to do so in each of the last three decades... During the Pat Bowlen era (1984-Pres.), the Broncos have won more regular-season games (252) and overall games (267) than any AFC team (second most in NFL)... Denver had five players selected to the 2010 Pro Bowl with that total tying for its most since 2001 (T-7th overall in club annals)...

His 339 receiving yards are the third most in franchise history through a player’s first three games... WR Demaryius Thomas totaled eight receptions for 97 yards (12.1 avg.) with one touchdown in his NFL debut against Seattle in Week 2, marking the second-highest reception total for a player’s NFL debut in franchise history... Thomas became one of just nine NFL players since 1970 to record at least eight catches in their professional debut... RB Knowshon Moreno in 2009 became the 14th player in the NFL since 1970 to lead league rookies in rushing yards (947), yards from scrimmage (1,160) and total touchdowns (9)... Moreno, who led league rookies with six 80-yard rushing games last season, became the fifth Bronco to lead NFL rookies in rushing... OL Ryan Clady, named to the Pro Bowl (starter) for the first time, became the 11th tackle in league annals to earn a Pro Bowl selection by his second professional season... Clady was named to the inaugural USA Football/NFLPA “All-Fundamentals” Team as the youngest member (23) to receive the honor... LB D.J. Williams, a Pro Bowl alternate, led Denver with 122 tackles (100 solo) that ranked 11th in the NFL... Since 2007, Williams is sixth in the league in tackles per game (8.2)... CB Champ Bailey was named to his ninth Pro Bowl to tie Pro Football Hall of Famer Mike Haynes for the most Pro Bowls at cornerback in NFL history...

S Brian Dawkins was named a Pro Bowl starter in his first season with Denver and tied former Broncos S Steve Atwater for the thirdmost Pro Bowl selections (8) by a safety in NFL history... WR Eddie Royal is one of two players in the NFL (Chargers RB Darren Sproles) to total at least 1,500 yards from scrimmage (1,621) and 1,500 kick return yards (1,752) since 2008... K Matt Prater owns the best field goal percentage in Broncos history (80.8% / 59-of-73) among players with at least 50 attempts... Prater has made 23 of his last 24 field goal attempts dating to the beginning of November 2009. His 95.7 percent success rate during that span ranks third in the NFL... Prater also owns the best field goal percentage from 50 or more yards (.800 / 8-of-10) in NFL history among players who started their career after 1970 (min. 10 att.).
