That is how much the Broncos have outscored their opponents in the past 10 quarters.
And these aren't ordinary opponents. They all are unique in some way.
San Diego won the division last year, and were predicted as consensus favorites to do so again this year.
Kansas City has what is supposed to be one of the top offenses in the league, as well as one of the most improved defenses. And prior to their game with the Broncos, the "experts" were lauding them as one of the teams to beat in the AFC.
And Jacksonville has the defense that slowed down the mighty Colts, in their house. And they play in a state where the Broncos don't do much winning.
I didn't think the season was over after week 1, and I don't think we should be handed the Lombardi Trophy now. But it is significant in that the ten-quarter run started when the team's prospects looked pretty bleak. Jason's post about today being a character win is right on - only I would extend it to the last three wins.
I can't wait to see what the next four games bring. This defense could be special.

Look at what The Chargers have done the last two games and now look at what Denver did to their offense.
The Chuggers are good. The Broncos are better.
