Tackle Ryan Clady is one of just four tackles in the NFL to have started all six games without allowing a sack to start the season.

22
Quarterback Peyton Manning earned his NFL-record 22nd career conference Player of the Week award after completing 24-of-30 passes for 309 yards with three touchdowns and one interception for a QB rating of 129.0 in Denver’s win over San Diego.

24
The 24-point deficit that the Broncos overcame to defeat the Chargers on Monday night tied a team record for largest comeback in team history. Denver became just the fifth team in NFL history to trail by 24 or more points at halftime and win the game.
35
Denver’s 35 second-half points set a team record, topping the previous high of 31 that the team scored at Kansas City (10/20/02) and at Oakland (11/6/11).

47
Manning led his 47th career game-winning drive in the fourth quarter or overtime in Denver’s Week 6 win at San Diego to tie Dan Marino for the most since the 1970 NFL merger.

73
Denver has outscored its opponents by 73 points in the fourth quarter this year to rank second in NFL history by a team through six games in a season. In Monday’s win, the Broncos outscored the Chargers 21-0 to complete the historic comeback. Denver hasn’t allowed a fourth-quarter point since Week 1 vs. Pittsburgh.

98
Center Dan Koppen improved his career winning percentage to .778 with his 98th career regular-season win in Week 6. He owns a career regular-season record of 98-29 over his 10 NFL seasons.

182
Linebacker Keith Brooking appeared in his 182nd consecutive game on Monday night in San Diego. That streak, which began on Sept. 3, 2001, is the third-longest among active NFL players, trailing London Fletcher (230) and Ronde Barber (229).

300
Manning topped the 300-yard passing mark for the fourth consecutive game in Denver’s Week 6 victory. That ties a franchise record in that category.

It's hard to believe Rhonde Barber is still playing.

Denver’s 35 second-half points set a team record, topping the previous high of 31 that the team scored at Kansas City (10/20/02) and at Oakland (11/6/11).

I love in the last 10 years we have put up over 30 points in a half against all three of our divisional rivals!

The number of wins the Denver Broncos have this season.

^
This is the only number I want to concern myself with right now. I'd like that to look like a 6 three and half weeks from now.

Goes back to Beantown Bronco Rule No. 11: nobody ever has their worst season in a contract year.

Hmmmm I'm having a little trouble understanding this. Do you think you could put it in grid format?

One of the few game outside of the Monday Night game vs oakland that S.O.B. played that I remember fondly.

"He can't throw the ball," Lombardi said, as a guest on ESPN's “The B.S. Report with Bill Simmons.” "I've talked to people who've caught the ball for him. He can't throw the ball to his left. He can't throw the ball across his body, because he doesn't feel it. People that catch the ball for him say he doesn't really have velocity on the ball." - NFL Network analyst Michael Lombardi
