John Fox wins 100th game as Broncos capture No. 1 seed

USA TODAY Sports

John Fox earned his 100th ever win as an NFL head coach when his Broncos took down the Chiefs on Sunday.

John Fox has had a fantastic second year with the Denver Broncos, helping guide them to the No. 1 seed in the AFC with a 13-3 record, along with the team's second straight AFC West title.

Fox's career has been a pretty solid one, headed by his achievement of leading the Carolina Panthers to the Super Bowl in 2003, where they lost to the New England Patriots. With Denver's win over the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 17, he hit a personal milestone with his 100th win as an NFL head coach. His 100-win mark includes 94 regular-season wins with the Panthers and Broncos along with six playoff wins, the most recent coming against the Pittsburgh Steelers last season.

After the game, he spoke about his achievement: "Yeah, I think any time you can reach any kind of pinnacle in anything. Our owner thought I was a hundred years old, and I said no just a hundred wins. No, I’m teasing. It is an accomplishment but it’s something of a lot of people’s work. It wasn’t one guy. I have a great staff. I have been with great players and it is a proud mark. I think three more would make it even better. This playoff year, I don’t want to say this year because it is ambiguous, but the next three games."

In the same press conference, he also spoke about how important it was for the Broncos to get the No. 1 seed. Fox said, "We get a week off, which is nice. We got a lot of things to work on and we will take full advantage of that this next week. We will find out who we play officially at the end of the week."

Denver will get the week off to start the playoffs and then face one of the Wild Card teams as they look to make their first Super Bowl since 1998.
