MILE-HIGH POINTSThe DENVER BRONCOS have scored 298 points (42.6 points per game) through the first seven weeks of 2013, the most points at this point of a season in NFL history. Denver has scored at least 30 points in all seven games.

 

With 30+ points this weekend against Washington, Denver can become the third team in NFL history to score at least 30 points in each of its first eight games. The 2007 New England Patriots and 2000 St. Louis Rams also accomplished the feat.

PERFECT DEFENSEThe KANSAS CITY CHIEFS (7-0) sit atop the AFC West and are the only remaining undefeated team in the NFL. Kansas City’s defense has allowed a league-low 81 points this season and 17 points or fewer in each of its first seven games.

 

If the Chiefs hold Cleveland to 17 points or fewer this Sunday, they would become the fourth team since 1970 to allow 17 points or fewer in each of their first eight games of a season. The 1977 Atlanta Falcons (nine games) were the most recent team to accomplish the feat.
