Whatever the Denver Broncos were trying to sell last season, NFL bettors weren’t buying it. Describing the opening act of the Sean Payton regime as a failure would be an understatement. If not for the Chargers suffering numerous debilitating injuries on both sides of the ball, the Broncos would likely have finished at the bottom of the AFC West standings for the fourth straight season. Instead, they won eight games but only managed to cover six of them and were underdogs in eight contests. No serious NFL bettor will ever forget the 70-20 thrashing by the Miami Dolphins in Week 3, where the Broncos were 6-point road underdogs. While there were some memorable moments, the negative ones far outweighed them, prompting upper management to make significant changes in the offseason to stabilize the franchise heading into the 2024-25 NFL season.

The first order of business was finding a new home for Russell Wilson, whose declining performance and hefty contract threatened to burden the team if he stayed. With the former Pro Bowler at quarterback, Denver fielded the league’s No. 26 ranked total offense and No. 19 ranked scoring offense, the latter somewhat boosted by the defense's ability to generate takeaways (No. 10) and provide favorable field position seemingly every passing game. However, this was the only bright spot for the defense, which allowed over 370 yards per game (No. 29) and north of 24 points per game (No. 27). Now in a state of transition, the Broncos have brought in numerous pieces through the NFL Draft, which upper management hopes will become the building blocks of a championship-caliber roster in the near future. For the here and now, it’s highly likely the Broncos aren’t competing for division or AFC championships let alone competing in the final game of the season.

With the drafting of Bo Nix, Jonah Elliss, and Troy Franklin in the first, third, and fourth rounds of the 2024 NFL Draft, the Denver Broncos are hopeful they have secured their quarterback, EDGE rusher, and impact wide receiver for the future. Immediate contributions from these players would significantly improve what was one of the league’s weakest rosters last season. The offense's struggles were evident as it averaged a respectable 14.2 yards per point (No. 6), but ranked only No. 20 in red zone touchdown scoring percentage. Denver also ranked in the top-15 for both punt (4.6) and field goal attempts (2.0) per game, highlighting their inability to sustain drives and score touchdowns—an unsustainable formula for success in today's NFL. Football bettors are well aware that head coach Sean Payton understands this, making it likely that the running game will play a more prominent role in the 2024-25 season.

With a backfield boasting Javonte Williams, Samaje Perine, Jaleel McLaughlin, and newcomer Audric Estime, who was a standout at Notre Dame, the Broncos have the tools to establish a potent ground attack. If Williams continues to struggle, Estime could see an increased role, building on a season where he was a 2nd-Team AP All-American and rushed for 1,341 yards, the fifth-most in Notre Dame history. Although the loss of center Lloyd Cushenberry III is a blow to the offensive line, it won’t deter Payton and offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi from focusing on the running game, recognizing it as the offense's strength. The wide receiver corps, featuring possession receivers like Courtland Sutton and Josh Reynolds, lacks a game-changing talent, but that could change if Marvin Mims Jr. is given more opportunities than he had during his rookie year.

The Broncos have not exceeded their season win total for eight consecutive seasons, with their current 5.5-game win total odds being the lowest since 2011. That year, they closed at six wins and ended up winning eight, starting a streak of five straight overs through 2015, the last time the franchise made the playoffs and won a Super Bowl. Oddsmakers would be surprised if the Broncos made the playoffs in 2024-25, given their +500 odds of doing so. Denver is also a hefty +2300 underdog to win the AFC West, indicating expectations for another last-place finish. This makes sense considering the team will face what Sharp Football Analysis ranks as the 25th toughest schedule, with games against the AFC North, NFC South, Seattle Seahawks, New York Jets, and Indianapolis Colts.

Founded in 1960 as charter members of the American Football League, the Denver Broncos did not post a winning record until 1973. In the franchise's early years, the Broncos were known for their hideous brown and yellow uniforms that included vertical socks. Even when they went to orange and blue in the mid-1960s, the team was still bad and ran on a shoestring budget. The biggest claim to fame for the Broncos was their win over the Detroit Lions in a 1966 exhibition game. It was the first exhibition game between the AFL and NFL and a shocking upset.

Led by the Orange Crush defense, Denver finally made the playoffs and the first Super Bowl in 1977, losing to the Dallas Cowboys.

In 1983, the franchise's fortunes changed forever with the arrival of first round draft choice John Elway. Elway rewrote the Broncos record book as a Hall of Fame quarterback. Elway and the Broncos lost three Super Bowls before finally winning the Vince Lombardi Trophy in 1997 and 1998 before Elway retired to become a team executive.

Indianapolis Colts import Peyton Manning led the Broncos to two Super Bowls, including their most recent championship in 2015, before retiring after the game. Since then, the Broncos have struggled to find a credible quarterback—until the arrival of Russell Wilson in 2022, or so they thought. Now, it's "Bo Nix Season" in the Mile High City after upper management drafted the well-traveled collegiate star much earlier than experts had predicted in the 2024 NFL Draft.
