The Most Interesting Mediocre Stats Ever

Athlon Sports magazine pointed out a bizarre statistical gem in their preview of the Denver Broncos this year. The Broncos were 8-8 last season. 4-4 at home, 4-4 on the road. They were 3-3 vs. the AFC West, 2-2 against the NFC and 5-5 against everyone else. Oh, and they outscored their opponents 326 to 324.

What’s remarkable is the way this mediocrity came about. The Broncos, you may recall, began the season 6-0. They had their bye week, then went 2-8. In their 6-0 start, the defense allowed 10.1 points per game. After the bye, the D allowed 25.8 points per game.
