Sports Authority Field at Mile High, Denver, CO
DENVER -- New coach, new system, new roster, new staff. Same old story for the Denver Broncos.Josh McDaniels' first season as Denver coach ended the same way Mike Shanahan's last one did: with a late-season flop and an embarrassing blowout that wasted a strong start and kept the Broncos out of the playoffs.
• Denver became the third team to start a season 6-0 and miss the playoffs. The Vikings in 2003 and the Redskins in 1978 are the other two teams.
• Linebacker Derrick Johnson, who had three career interceptions in five seasons entering the game, had two interceptions and returned both for touchdowns.
• Jamaal Charles rushed for a franchise-record 259 yards on 25 carries and finished the season with 1,120 yards -- the eighth-best single-season total in team history.
• Kyle Orton threw three interceptions after throwing just nine in his first 15 games.
