Their unblemished records are blemished by the fact they are beating up on the weaklings of the league.
Denver quarterback Peyton Manning had a September to remember, throwing 16 touchdown passes through the Broncos first four games without an interception, while the Broncos are averaging nearly 45 points a game.
The combined record of Denver's opponents is 4-12.
The Patriots have beaten the Bills, Bucs, Jets and Falcons, who have a combined record of 5-11. The other unbeatens have faced similar opponents. Not one of these unbeaten and unbowed teams have played rivals that have won over half their games collectively.
In fact, the Saints are the only unbeaten team now standing who have one of the toughest schedules in the league, if you go by 2012 records.
