Legwold should start sending me a commission:
Their winning streak is certainly impressive, as is their current offensive and defensive standing. They are the only team in the league ranked in the top five in both. But their 10 wins have come against teams that are a combined 39-65 (.375).
While the Broncos have no control over the troubles the teams in their own division continue to have, or even over their schedule, their current resume is also the teams they have played, nothing more, nothing less.
The three teams that have defeated the Broncos are a combined 32-7 (.821), two of those on the road — in New England and in Atlanta.
