Jacksonville Jaguars to Broncos: 'Stay classy, Denver'

The Denver Broncos and Jacksonville Jaguars face off Sunday in what is the most lopsided-looking matchup in recent NFL history.

In this "Any Given Sunday" league, it's rare to find a game in which one team appears to have virtually no competitive chance.

The Jaguars have lost every game this season by double figures. The Broncos have a quarterback playing at a level we've never seen.

You could find a lot of different ways to spell out the mismatch statistically. The Broncos' official Twitter feed picked a good one.

The Jaguars, meanwhile, are getting tired of being punchlines.

Official team Twitter feeds are a strange 2013 phenomenon. They often are more widely read and dispersed than a team press release or news conference, but they don't face the same vetting process. They often are left to younger staffers who understand "The Twitter."

We're all for a little lighthearted trash-talking; football is supposed to be fun. We're not sure that coaches and front-office members would agree.
