ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- If Sunday's game against Jacksonville means more than most to Jack Del Rio, he's not showing it.
It is the first coaching opportunity for Denver's defensive coordinator against the team that fired him in 2011 after 8 1/2 seasons as its head coach.
The Jaguars have gone 4-22 since his departure.
Asked Thursday what facing Jacksonville meant to him, Del Rio said, "It's an opportunity to get our sixth win. That's really what we're after. Sunday can't get here quick enough. I feel like defensively we've got a lot of work to do."
Because of a porous pass defense, the Broncos (5-0) rank 29th overall in the NFL after Del Rio guided Denver to a No. 2 defensive ranking last season.
