The Broncos, since winning the Super Bowl in 2016, have been a team in decline. However, they are still a strong contender to make the playoffs each season. And while it’s true that Trevor Siemian was the 250th draft pick, he’s got all the makings of a competent NFL quarterback. More than competent, actually. He is growing in confidence, something his defense helps him out with. Denver’s defense is – and will be – one of the league’s best for years to come so rest assured knowing the Broncos are still a strong overall outfit.

How To Make Money Betting On Denver Broncos
The Broncos play their home games at Sports Authority Field at Mile High, so named because that is exactly how far the city of Denver is above sea level. And that altitude definitely impacts the outcome of NFL games. And so too does their raucous home support.
Besides the effect the altitude can have on visiting players, it definitely is a kicker's dream. The lighter air means that, on average, kickoffs travel approximately 10 yards further in Denver than in other NFL cities. Three of the four longest field goals made in the history of the NFL were booted in Denver, including Matt Prater's NFL record 64-yard kick against the Tennessee Titans in 2013.
No team in the NFL is better at losing the Super Bowl than the Denver Broncos. The Broncos joined the Minnesota Vikings and Buffalo Bills as teams that dropped each of their first four Super Bowl appearances. Whle those two teams stopped, the Broncos rebounded, winning back-to-back Super Bowls in 1997 and 1998 to go with their Super Bowl 50 win.
The Broncos own the largest margin of defeat when they fell 55-10 to the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XXIV. They also lost 43-8 to the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XVLIII and 42-10 to the Washington Redskins in Super Bowl XXII.
Denver's five Super Bowl losses have come by an average margin of deficit of 29.6 points.
It was a smothering defense that won Super Bowl 50 for the Denver Broncos, just as it was a smothering defense that got the Broncos to Super Bowl 50. Denver had the best total defense in the NFL in 2015, allowing just 283.1 yards per game. The Broncos were also the top passing defense in the league, hollding opponents to a meagre 199.6 yards per game through the air. On the ground, teams fared a bit better against the Denver defense. The 83.6 yards of rushing surrendered by the Broncos was third-best in the NFL.
Not much has changed with the current Broncos lineup. They are still a bit weaker in their run defense but are sharp as a knife at stopping the pass. Expect them to win most of their home games, too. They are that good in the Mile High City.
Denver allowed 18.5 points per game in 2015 and only three teams in the league were more frugal in allowing the opposition to change the digits on the scoreboard. Six times in 16 regular-season games the Broncos permitted fewer than 20 points to be scored.
