      Today’s trivia

      Question: In the 2008 season, what was it that The Broncos did that was never done before in NFL history? (I'll accept more than one answer, but answers must be substantiated.)

      Comment


      • With a loss to the Chargers, the Broncos' season ended at 8–8. In the process, they became the first team in NFL history to enter the final three weeks of a regular season with a three-game lead and lose all three games.

          WINNER!!!!

          In 2008, after 13 games, the team was sitting in first place in the AFC West, with an 8–5 record, three games ahead of the Chargers, who were 5–8. However, after two losses and two wins by The Chargers the stage was set for the 2008 season finale. The Broncos were blown out 52–21 by the Chargers, and would become the first team in NFL history to enter the final quarter of a regular season with a three-game lead and squander the division lead. (this one still hurts!!!)

                  Incorrect. He was a FA RB that signed with DEN. "Bingo" was his name-o

                  • Speaking of placekickers and “Bingo”...

                    Gene Mingo - first person to score for the Broncos and Ring of Fame member. Both running back AND placekicker - quite a combination!!

                        The movie Bingo (1991) may have been about a boy and his dog, but it had a Denver Broncos storyline, too.

                        In the movie, a boy named Chuckie saves Bingo the dog and has to hide Bingo because his parents won't let him have a dog. When his father, a barefoot goal kicker for the Denver Broncos, is abruptly traded to the Green Bay Packers, Bingo must be left behind.

                        Well...watch the movie and find out what happens!!

                            A clue, make that two....

                            I am referring to "The Drive". And the movie was definitely not written by H. G. Wells!

                                The Drive was featured in the movie Hot Tub Time Machine, but due to the butterfly effect, Jackson was distracted by a squirrel and failed to catch the pass and Cleveland went on to win. It was inaccurately portrayed as being in 1986 (the game was played on January 11, 1987, though it was at the end of the 1986 NFL season). The movie implied that it was played at night; however, when Karlis kicked the winning field goal in OT, it was still daytime in Cleveland. Oh well....
