1997 Broncos and 2013 Broncos – like looking in a mirror

I saw a tweet on Sunday after the Broncos 33-39 loss to the Colts that got me thinking about the uncanny similarity between the 2013 Broncos and the 1997 Broncos, who won the Super Bowl.

@jbott32 ’97 #Broncos had just come off the loss to #Jaguars in divisional playoffs. They started season 6-0 & lost their 7th game. #SoundFamilar

The 1997 Denver Broncos started their season after a devastating loss to the the Jacksonville Jaguars in the divisional playoffs the previous season. Just as the 2013 Denver Broncos started their season after a devastating loss to the Baltimore Ravens in the divisional playoffs the previous season. The 1997 Broncos started out 6-0, losing their 7th game. Just as the 2013 Broncos started out 6-0, losing their 7th game. The 1997 Broncos had future hall of fame quarterback John Elway. Just as the 2013 Broncos have future hall of fame quarterback Peyton Manning. The 1997 Broncos lost their second game of the season to the Kansas City Chiefs on November 16th. The 2013 Broncos will play the currently undefeated Kansas City Chiefs on November 17th. I really hope the similarities keep coming because the 1997 Denver Broncos won the Super Bowl.
