Denver Broncos: 2013 Week 4 NFL Power Rankings (#2)

Last week: 3 (+1)

The Broncos beat the Raiders badly, but the final score of 37-21 doesn’t tell how big of a blowout it was. The Broncos had 31 first downs to just 1 punt, while the Raiders had 13 first downs and punted 6 times. The Raiders actually won the turnover battle by 2, recovering both of the Broncos’ fumbles, both of which were pretty unforced. Teams who win the turnover battle by 2 win, on average, 82.1% of the time and outscore opponents by 9.64 points per game. Offensively at least, the Broncos are starting to look like a serious threat to the 2007 Patriots’ records. They won’t allow just 17.1 points per game like the 2007 Patriots and they won’t go 16-0 though. That being said, you could argue they’re better than the Seahawks. I won’t, but you can’t argue that any other team deserves a spot in the top-2 than the Broncos and the Seahawks.
