The Broncos’ offense and the Cowboys’ defense are both closing in on some NFL single-season records, but only Denver is close to a record it actually wants to break.
In Denver, the NFL single-season records for points, touchdowns, extra points and passing first downs are all in play. Peyton Manning has a chance to break several individual records, so it’s no surprise that the Broncos are closing in on several team records as well.
In Dallas, the defense is on its way to breaking some ugly records. The Cowboys’ defense could break the NFL records for total yards allowed, passing yards allowed, total first downs allowed and passing first downs allowed.
And one record you might not realize is in danger of falling is the record for the most safeties scored in a season. The Jaguars have scored three safeties this year, and the NFL record is four. Click here for the full list of team records that could fall in the next two weeks.
