The Denver Broncos are one of the most successful NFL teams of the modern era, appearing in nine playoffs since 2000, appearing in eight Super Bowls, claiming three Super Bowl titles, and winning 15 division titles.
But that wasn’t the case when the Broncos began their journey in the American Football League (AFL) (before the 1970 merger which saw the Broncos play in the NFL) in the 60s they won 39 games during their 10 year AFL stint, while losing a whopping 97 games.
For most of the 60s there wasn’t much to cheer about, but that changed in 1967 when they selected halfback Floyd Little in the draft with pick 6, who would end up spending his whole career with Broncos, making 117 appearances from 1967-1975, scoring 43 touchdowns and rushing 6,323 yards. The Broncos also became the first AFL team to beat an NFL side during a preseason game in the same year which saw the Broncos defeat the Detroit Lions 13-7.
Fast forward to the 70s and again it was the same old story for the Broncos in the newly formed NFL, as they often finished each season close to the bottom of their division, but in seven years time there was light ahead of the tunnel.
The Broncos fortunes began to change in 1977 which saw them end the regular season with a 12-2 record earning them their first postseason appearance since their inception. If that wasn’t enough to keep the Broncos faithful happy, the Broncos team led by coach Red Miller, took them all the way to their inaugural Super Bowl outing.
The Broncos couldn’t match being on the big stage as the team lost Super Bowl XII going down to the Dallas Cowboys 27-10. By the turn of the 80s, the Broncos missed the playoffs for the first few years of the new decade, but they struck gold in the draft where they picked up future Hall of Famer quarterback John Elway with pick 1.
Elway would spend his whole career at the Broncos, making 234 appearances from his debut in 1983 to 1998, having 4,123 passes completed, 300 passing touchdowns, and completing 5,1475 passing yards throughout his 15 year tenure.
The Broncos made the playoffs four more times before the end of the decade, as well as appearing in Super Bowl XXI, Super Bowl XXII and Super Bowl XXIV, however, they went down each time.
It was the same old Broncos at the beginning of the 90s, as they made the playoffs in 1991 (in which they lost the Conference Championship), 1993 (losing the wildcard playoff) and in 1996 (losing the divisional round). After a few false downs from the 80s and the early 90s the 1997 season would go down in Broncos folklore as the most cherished season.
The Broncos were finally able to call themselves Super Bowl champions as the heartache of the three previous defeats on the big dance would finally vanish, as the Broncos got their hands on their maiden Vince Lombardi trophy in Super Bowl XXXII defeating the Green Bay Packers 24-31.
The Broncos didn’t stop there as by the 1998 season they were ready to do it all again going back-to-back as they became one of five teams to win the Super Bowl in two consecutive showings defeating the Atlanta Hawks in Super Bowl XXXIII, as John Elway was named the MVP.
The Broncos only managed to make the playoffs four more times in the 2000s, appearing in the 2000, 2003, 2004 and 2005 postseason but either lost the wildcard or the divisional playoff.
Despite making the playoffs in 2011, the Broncos sent a message to the NFL world that they mean business when they signed quarterback Peyton Manning from the Indianapolis Colts ahead of the 2012 season.
Manning would be instrumental to the Broncos throughout his three year tenure from 2012 to 2015, appearing 58 times, completing 1443 passes, making 17,112 passing yards and having 140 passing touchdowns.
However, it was Manning’s last season which broke a 17 year Super Bowl drought when the Broncos defeated the Carolina Panthers 24-10 in Super Bowl 50, to claim their third Vince Lombardi trophy and their first since the 1998 season. Manning retired after the Super Bowl triumph, and since then the Broncos have not made the playoffs, having a 6-10 record in 2018 and going 7-9 in 2019.
If you are a fan of the Denver Broncos, then you know that the only thing that matters right now is how they are expected to perform in the 2020 / 2021 season. Do the Denver Broncos have the star power to make it all the way to the Super Bowl in 2021? Have a read on below at SportsTips expert picks & preview on the Denver Broncos:
Having been amongst NFL coaching ranks since 1986, there would be few coaches in the NFL with experience equal to that of Vic Fangio. Having worked as a Defensive coordinator for most of his coaching apprenticeship, Fangio was finally given his chance to head coach a team signing with the Denver Broncos in January of 2019.
In his one season in charge, the Broncos were sitting 3-8 after 12 weeks, which led to Fangio to start the team’s third Quarterback for the season, rookie Drew Lock. Lock had an immediate impact after his return from a thumb injury, posting a 4-1 record in the last five games to finish the season with a 7-9 record.
With the Broncos Quarterback debate seemingly put to bed, Fangio oversaw the selection of star college receiver Jerry Jeudy with the 15th pick in the 2020 draft, giving Lock and the Broncos another elite avenue to score in 2020. Fangio’s defensive background alongside a young and exciting offense could see the Broncos push for a Playoff berth in the AFC.
In a 2019 season that saw the Broncos field three different starting quarterbacks, Courtland Sutton managed to have a breakout year individually. Bringing in 72 receptions for 1,112 yards and 6 touchdowns, Sutton proved that regardless of who was throwing the ball, he could catch it.
Having acquired Jerry Jeudy and KJ Hamler this offseason, opposition defences will be forced to equally respect each member of the Broncos’ receiving group, with Sutton as the spearhead. After receiving a debut Pro Bowl selection in 2019, Sutton is coming into 2020 as the primary receiver in Denver, and with Drew Lock solidified as the starting quarterback for this season, both Sutton and Lock will be looking to increase their output in 2020.
After a lacklustre year by his illustrious standards, Von Miller will be coming into 2020 looking to re-ignite his eight-time Pro Bowl, seven-time All-Pro form. The Super Bowl 50 MVP, has made his intentions to add to his trophy case and win the Defensive Player of The Year award, an accolade that’s eluded him in his career to date.
Miller is currently paying $15 to win the award. At 31 years of age, Miller is still the most talented defensive player for the Broncos, and with the addition of Jurrell Casey and return of Bradley Chubb, offences will have to focus on multiple pass rushing threats, allowing Miller to not carry the load of the whole defence. Looking to add to his impressive sack total of 106.0 in 2020, Miller is almost certain to wind back the clock and make the Broncos a playoff contender coming out of the AFC.
The 2019 Broncos could be seen as one that never really lived up to expectations as they had a slow start, won a few games here and there but then had a few losing streaks and then bouncing back with a few winning streaks.
The Broncos finished against the spread with a 9-7-0 overall record, ranking them as the 12th best team in the NFL and the second best in the AFC West. Arguably when it came to the spread at home, the Broncos could be seen as having a much better record as they were ranked sixth in the NFL and second in the AFC West with a record of 5-3-0.
However, their away form wasn’t that great as they were ranked 27th in the NFL and second last in the AFC West (although the Broncos and Las Vegas both shared the same record) with 4-4-0. The Broncos finished the 2019 season with an over/under record of 7-9-0 ranking them 27th in the NFL and second last in the AFC West (the Las Vegas Raiders had the same record).
At home the Broncos were 15th in the NFL and second in the AFC West with a 4-4-0 record. The Broncos form dipped when they were on the road as they were ranked 29th in the NFL for being the away side when it came to over/under and finished second last in the AFC West standings (once again they shared the same record Las Vegas) with a 3-5-0 record.
It could be noted that the Broncos at the start of the season were not really in contention as a day before their game in Las Vegas they were valued at +7000. On September 10 (game day against the Las Vegas Raiders) their value went up to +8000 and suffered a four game losing streak from rounds 1 -4, and it impacted on their value as by October 1 the Broncos were marked at +71667.
From October 7 (in which they were valued at +5000) to October 14 the Broncos won two games in a row, however, even that wasn’t enough to convince the value as they were marked +18333 two days later. The Broncos value skyrocketed before the bye week where they suffered a two game losing streak between October 18 to October 28 and by the end of the month they were +31667.
They reached their highest value for the season on November 25 which saw their odds soar to +73333, after a defeat to Minnesota on November 18. Even after back-to-back defeats from Minnesota and Buffalo saw their value drop as after the loss to the Bills they ended their value at +50000 on November 26.
