Broncos may well need 14-game winning streak to win Super Bowl
Results of teams with 9 game streaks in a season
Beware the unbeaten run of success.
The Broncos are the 16th team in the past decade to string together nine consecutive wins. Of the previous 15 teams with such a streak, seven didn't win a playoff game, including Peyton Manning's Indianapolis Colts of 2005 and 2008.
Only three of those 15 regular-season juggernauts went on to win the Super Bowl. The Broncos can be heartened knowing Manning's 2006 Indianapolis Colts were among them.
