» The Broncos trail in the series with its AFC West rival by a record of 52-63-2, including a 25-34 record on the road.

» With their season opener, Denver will have appeared on “Monday Night Football” an NFL record-tying (along with Oakland) 28th consecutive season — the 74th appearance overall.

» The Broncos own 32-40-1 all-time record in “Monday Night Football” games, with an 8-28 mark on the road.

» Denver head coach Vic Fangio, a 32-year NFL coaching veteran, will make his debut as the 17th head coach in franchise history.

» With a win, the Broncos can extend its NFL-best seven-game winning streak in season openers.

» Denver can become the 14th team to 500 wins with a victory over Oakland.

» Broncos pass rusher Von Miller needs just one sack to pass Joey Porter for sole possession of 33rd on the NFL’s all-time sack list.

» Miller needs two sacks to reach 100 for his career, which would make him the fourth-fast player to do so (Reggie White: 96 games, DeMarcus Ware: 113 games and Bruce Smith: 115 games).
