10. Various late-game losses in 2019

The 2019 Denver Broncos were closer to making the playoffs than you probably think, and a slew of late-game losses were just daggers straight to the heart. Two close losses at home to the Bears and the Jaguars contributed to Denver's 0-4 start in 2019.

The team also had another tough loss several weeks later to the Indianapolis Colts, and the up and down game versus the Vikings in Minnesota was perhaps the most brutal of them all, as Denver started that game with a massive lead. Four tough losses could have totally flipped the Denver Broncos season. They finished 7-9 on the year, but had they been able to just split these four losses, they'd have gone 9-7 and could have squeaked into the playoffs in Vic Fangio's first year as head coach.

This game after Miller spent the first chunk of the year suspended, so 2013 was a season to forget for the future Hall of Fame pass rusher.
