John Fox: 'Denver Broncos had a successful season'

Denver Broncos head coach John Fox believes that his side's season was a success despite their defeat to the Seattle Seahawks in the Super Bowl.

Denver Broncos head coach John Fox has expressed his belief that his side's 2013 season should go down as a success, despite their defeat in the Super Bowl.

The Broncos became the most potent offence in NFL history by scoring a record 606 points during the regular season, while quarterback Peyton Manning set new league marks for passing yards and touchdown passes in a single campaign.

However, having entered the Super Bowl as slight favourites, they were swept aside by the Seattle Seahawks, who produced a stunning defensive display to nullify the Broncos' offense.

Fox acknowledged that the overwhelming feeling after the climax of their season would be one of disappointment, but insists that it was a good year for the team overall.

"I know there is disappointment. It will take a while to go away for all of us, but at the end of the day, it was a successful season: 15-4 is not real shabby," Fox told The AP.

Broncos executive and former quarterback John Elway has also expressed his pride in the team's performance over the course of this season.
