Another division win puts Fox in elite company

By  | 

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- Instead of talking about the Super Bowl, Broncos coach John Fox focuses on the small goals his team has to meet to get there.

On an almost daily basis, he sets incremental, easy-to-digest benchmarks -- cut down on turnovers, get a little better every game, play your best football come December -- that rarely bring up the words "Super Bowl," but are certainly formulated with that in mind.

When the Broncos reached one of their goals by wrapping up the AFC West on Sunday, Fox joined a couple of coaching stalwarts from the 1970s, Chuck Knox and Ted Marchibroda, as only the third coach in NFL history to take over a team with a losing record and win back-to-back division titles.
