Denver Broncos general manager John Elway is one of the most competitive individuals in the National Football League. Needless to say, the current trajectory of the 2017 Broncos is something Elway isn’t the least bit pleased about.
In an interview with Mike Tirico of NBC Sports that will air on Football Night in America at 7 p.m. ET, Elway opened up about the Broncos’ current four-game losing streak, and what his team needs to get back to playing winning football.
“It’s very tough,” Elway said (via Nicki Jhabvala of the Denver Post). “And I think it’s tough for everybody in this building because everybody in this building, and really Broncos country, is used to winning. Especially when you go through the way that we’ve lost, you know, with the turnovers. So the way that we are losing, I think is that much more frustrating too. What we’ve got to learn is we’ve got to learn that everybody has got to do their job the best that they can do their job. Don’t make the big mistakes that we’re making. So we got to try to get out of that, and hopefully get back to playing the quality football that we’re used to.”
The Broncos (3-5) unfortunately may have to wait one more week to end their current losing streak. They are set to host the defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots (6-2) on Sunday Night Football.
The Broncos are going into the game as 7-point underdogs, despite the Patriots’ history of struggling in Denver.
