Broncos look to avoid first seven-game losing streak since 1967

This is not the kind of company we expected this team to keep.

The 2017 Denver Broncos are on the cusp of history. The last time this franchise had a seven-game losing streak in a single season was in 1967 when the team lost nine-straight.

Perhaps that’s why players are testy on Thanksgiving. Practice on Thursday included two fights and a serious discussion between Aqib Talib and John Elway.

This team needs a win very badly. These fights are either a very good sign or a very bad sign. It could mean they will come into this game against the Oakland Raiders with some fire or it could mean the team is unraveling.

I’m hoping it’s some fire...
