Broncos a record favorite over Jaguars

The Denver Broncos have set yet another record.

Las Vegas oddsmakers have tabbed the Broncos a 28-point favorite against the Jacksonville Jaguars, which are making a run at going 0-16 for the first time since the Lions did in 2008.

Previously this year, the Seahawks opened as 19.5-point favorites over Jacksonville. They covered with a 45-17 win.

But that's not the only off-field storyline surrounding this game. On Monday, the Broncos tweeted a stat that annoyed the Jaguars a bit.

"The #Broncos' 51 points in yesterday's win are as many points as the Jaguars have scored all season," the Broncos tweeted.

The Jaguars, peeved, replied, "Stay classy, Denver."

To which the Broncos wrote back, "No shots, just stats."
