(Photo by Justin Edmonds/Getty Images) After ranking 23rd overall in 2011, the Denver Broncos offense has turned things around this season. Last season, the Broncos ranked 25-of-32 among teams in points scored (309) and scored 30 points in a game on just two occasions. Needless to say, the Broncos have made great improvements in 2012. This season, the Broncos have scored 30 points seven times, winning all seven of those games. Just eleven games into 2012, the Broncos have already scored 301 points, just eight points fewer than their 2011 season total. Ranked second in the NFL in points scored (behind only New England) and third in yards per game (394.2, behind New England and Detroit), the Broncos have been led by quarterback Peyton Manning, who has accounted for 144 points himself. “What Peyton is doing, in my brain, is not just remarkable, it’s freaking historical,” Coach John Fox told Sam Farmer of the Los Angeles Times. Remarkable, Manning certainly has been. Manning is the league’s second-highest rated quarterback (106.2) and owns the NFL’s best completion percentage (68.5%).  On pace to break franchise records for passing scores and yards in a single season, Manning has the Broncos’ offense rolling. Much improved from a season ago, Manning and the Broncos aren’t patting themselves on the back. “I think we have things we want to get better at all the time,”  said Manning earlier in the week.  ”It’d be nice to go through a game without turning the ball over—and being able to get a first down at the end of the game when you have to as opposed to punting it back.  There’s lots of things that we can get better at.” Denver’s ultimate goal is to improve on their 2011 finish.  After reaching the playoffs last season, the team was crushed by New England in the AFC Divisional playoffs.  Scoring points helps win games and breaking records is nice, but winning in the postseason is what people remember.  The Broncos want to be remembered for their 2012 campaign.
