Inside the Numbers: Broncos vs. Ravens

Posted Sep 8, 2013

A look at some noteworthy statistics from Denver’s season-opening win vs. Baltimore.

:05
The shortest Broncos scoring drive in Thursday's win vs. Baltimore was just five seconds. That’s how long it took quarterback Peyton Manning to connect with tight end Julius Thomas on a 24-yard touchdown pass, the team’s first score of the season.

2
Julius Thomas and wide receiver Demaryius Thomas each topped the 100-yard receiving mark (110, 161, respectively) to give the Broncos their first pair of 100-yard receivers in a game since Brandon Lloyd (115) and Eddie Royal (113) did so at Tennessee on Oct. 3, 2010.

2.5
Linebacker Shaun Phillips totaled 2.5 sacks in his Broncos debut to lead all players. The 2.5 sacks represented the fifth game in his career that Phillips has recorded more than two sacks in a game.

2:30
The longest Broncos scoring drive lasted just 2:30. The six-play, 80-yard drive culminated in Andre Caldwell’s 28-yard touchdown reception that gave Denver a 21-17 lead in the third quarter.

4
Cornerback Tony Carter’s four pass breakups marked a career high and tied for sixth-most in team history in a single game.

7
Manning’s seven touchdown passes tied an NFL record. He became just the second player in league history to throw seven touchdowns with zero interceptions in a game.

12
Safety Duke Ihenacho led all players with 12 tackles and added three pass breakups in his first career start.

14
As a team, the Broncos broke up 14 of Joe Flacco’s passes, which tied for third-most in team history. The 14 pass breakups were the most by the club since Oct. 16, 2005 vs. New England.

49
Denver’s 49 points were the most scored by the team since it beat Kansas City 49-13 on Nov. 14, 2010.

110
Julius Thomas caught five passes for 110 yards and a pair of touchdowns, which represented the first 100-yard receiving game by a Broncos tight end since Tony Scheffler did so on Oct. 19, 2009. The 110 yards were the most by a Broncos tight end since Shannon Sharpe had a team-record 214 yards at Kansas City on Oct. 20, 2002.

161
Wide receiver Demaryius Thomas led all players with 161 receiving yards on five catches to mark the third-most receiving yards in a game for the fourth-year receiver.

462
Manning completed 27-of-42 passes for 462 yards, which were the second-highest total of his career and tied for the third-most for a game in Broncos history.

510
The Broncos’ 510 yards of offense ranked 17th in club history for a single game.

76,977
The crowd at Sports Authority Field at Mile High for Thursday’s NFL opener was the third-largest attendance figure at a home game in Broncos history.
