Broncos hold the NFL’s longest drought for pick-sixes

The final game against the Raiders would be a good time to end that.

It has been a looooong time since the Broncos had a pick-six.

And when I say long, I also mean the longest in the NFL to date.

The last time the Broncos’ defense intercepted a pass and took it to the house, according to, was Nov. 28, 2021 - more than two years ago.

And that pick-six 39 games ago in Week 12 against the Chargers came from none other than then-rookie corner Pat Surtain II - his first career pick-six.

Now in his third NFL season, Surtain only has one interception this year, which came against the Jets in Week 5.

But with a winning season on the line for the Broncos in their final matchup against the Raiders, there is no game like the present to end this pick-six drought.
