As I’m enjoying Super Bowl week–and I’m sure you are as well–a thought popped into my head.

The Denver Broncos have enjoyed the longest possible NFL season, counting the regular and postseason. The Broncos opened the year in Denver against the defending Super Bowl Champion Baltimore Ravens, a game in which Peyton Manning set the tone for the rest of the year by throwing seven touchdown passes.

The Broncos finished the year with 13 wins as the number one seed in the AFC, and enjoyed a bye week for the first week of the playoffs before beating the San Diego Chargers and New England Patriots en route to the Super Bowl in New York/New Jersey.

From the NFL Kickoff game to the Super Bowl, this has been one of the most glorious of Denver Broncos seasons, even more fun when you consider that fans around the globe can interact with each other via social media outlets and the team is as transparent as it has ever been, offering the ultimate fan experience.

I have cherished every moment of this season, and can’t wait to see it end with a Super Bowl win. To keep you motivated and confident, here are Peyton Manning’s record 55 touchdown passes from this season.
