A Triple Crown for the Broncos?

New, comments

Good Sunday morning, Broncos Country!

In honor of yesterday's incredible Triple Crown winner, NFL Network had this interesting stat:

And here's an interesting tidbit - there is only one current Broncos player who was alive the last time a horse won the Triple Crown. Care to make any guesses?

As I'm prone to do, I'm going to take the whole "unlikely odds that any horse can win the Triple Crown" thing as a good sign that the Broncos can win their third Super Bowl this season.

I know, I know.

But it's June...and another horse did it.
