The Denver Broncos are a team looking to catch others off guard in 2020.
Many of the professional sports leagues are pretty cut and dry entering each season as far as which teams are the powerhouses and which teams are the pretenders. One of the great things about the NFL is that parity is usually quite evident.
For Denver Broncos, the team is quietly forming into one that could not only be much better this coming season but one that could surprise some of those perceived powerhouse squads.
For fans, the idea of this Broncos team positioning itself as one that could pull an upset or two this season, like it did last year against the Houston Texans, is fun. Those are the teams that learn how to win and become a contender sooner rather than later.
The Broncos have the talent to do it. The offensive side of the ball has been padded nicely and the team is still run by one of the best defensive minds the league has ever known in Vic Fangio.
The Broncos are a trendy pick to sneak up on teams this season. Here are three other times in team history when not much was expected, but the team turned some heads.
