On This Day in Broncos History: November 14

Are You Ready for a Shut Out?

November 14, 1976 - Denver shut out the San Diego Chargers 17-0 in San Diego. This marked the first time the Broncos had forced two shutouts in a single season. Interestingly enough, the first shut out of the season of the season came in Denver on October 3, when the Broncos shut out the Chargers 26-0. It was only the fourth time in franchise history that Denver had shut out an opponent.

Since that game, the Broncos have shut out opposing teams seventeen times. In only three seasons have they logged two shut outs within a single season -- 1976, 1979 and 1987. The last time the Broncos shut out an opponent was November 20, 2005, when they defeated the New York Jets 27-0.
