Some believe it all has to do with strategy while others believe it's pure luck. Then there are those that really look into the numbers.

Their all-time playoff record is 18 to 16, meaning out of 34 playoff games, they've won 18 times.

But when they have a playoff game at home, the numbers are way in their favor - 13 to 3.

Peyton Manning has played in 19 playoff games in his career, of which he's won nine.

In the last 11 Super Bowls, only two number one seeds have won. The most popular to win is the number two seed.

The Broncos, however, have reached the Super Bowl four-out-of-five times as a No. 1 seed.

Based off of the last 11 years, the number one seed has a 46 percent chance of making it to the Super Bowl.

Since 2001, the number one seed has won the Super Bowl just 18 percent of the time.

We've won 11 games in a row, but we aren't the first to do it. Six other teams have finished the season with at least an 11 game win streak and two have gone on to win the Super Bowl (Miami in 1972 and New England in 2003).

Two more quick stats:

Manning has won nine straight games against the ravens. According to ODDShark, Las Vegas sports betters have the Broncos as the favored team to win the whole thing.

But they still have to play the game.
