Broncos Week 4 Talking Points: In last two years, starting 4-0 has meant qualifying for playoffs

Beat writer Ryan O’Halloran offers up three storylines ahead of the Broncos’ game against the Baltimore Ravens at Empower Field on Sunday.

Chasing 4-0

The Broncos are a narrow home favorite (two points) over Baltimore and have a chance to start 4-0 for the sixth time since 1999. Only three of the previous five teams made the postseason after their quick starts — wild-card loss in 2003, Super Bowl loss in ’13 and Super Bowl win in ’15. In the last two seasons, every team that started 4-0 made the playoffs — Kansas City and New England in ’19 and Buffalo, Kansas City, Pittsburgh, Seattle and Green Bay last year. The Broncos have wins of 14, 10 and 26 points over the Giants, Jaguars and Jets, respectively. They are dealing with injury adversity, but the Ravens (2-1) will be the first team to test the Broncos’ in-game resolve.
