The Denver Broncos are in the midst of one of the worst seasons in franchise history. They are currently riding an eight-game losing streak, they have a 3-9 overall record, and they haven’t won a game since Week 4 against the Oakland Raiders.
To make matters worse, the Broncos are becoming danger of breaking multiple franchise losing streak records if they continue to lose games.
According to Casey Light of Mile High Sports, the Broncos are one loss away from tying the franchise record for the longest single-season losing streak (nine games, set in 1967). What’s more, if Denver goes winless in the next three games, it will franchise record for longest winless streak inside of a single season (the current record is 10 games, a streak set in 1963 which included a tie); and if they lose out, the Broncos will set a new franchise mark for longest losing streak (the current record is 11 games). On top of that, losing out would keep the franchise record for longest overall winless streak (14 games, across the 1963-64 seasons) in play for this group going into the 2018 season.
The Broncos’ four remaining games are against the New York Jets (home), Indianapolis Colts (road), Washington Redskins (road), and Kansas City Chiefs (home). The Broncos will likely be underdogs in all four games.
It’s hard to believe this franchise is less than two years removed from winning a Super Bowl title.
