Every year, I put in a Super Bowl futures bet on the Broncos - no matter how good or bad they’re expected to be. The first time I got to cash that was January 25, 1998: John Elway, Terrell Davis & Co. lead my Broncos to a 31-24 upset of the Packers. It’s etched in my mind forever.

In the 2012-13 NFL season, the Broncos’ first year with the rejuvenated Peyton Manning, Denver led 35-28 late in a divisional playoff matchup. But the defense gave up that gawd-awful 70-yard touchdown pass to the Ravens in the waning seconds of regulation. Then the Broncos lost 38-35 in overtime. Should’ve been another Super Bowl ring year. Ugh.
