On September 20, 1992 the Denver Broncos traveled to Philadelphia to face the number 2 NFC East Eagles at Veterans Stadium. It was the Broncos third game of the season and the last time the Denver Broncos were ever shut out. To give some perspective of just how long ago that took placeÖTrevor Siemian was a year old.

Fast forward to yesterday afternoon in Carson, California where the L.A. Chargers hosted the (tied for first in the Division) Denver Broncos. Denverís proverbial dark cloud followed the Broncos to California, which was apparently present on the opening drive, when Broncos wide receiver A.J. Derby fumbled the ball after a significant gain through the air.

As much as fans would love to place blame on superstitions and bad beats, the truth is, thereís a problem in Denver and the answer might not be as apparent as fans might think. While itís obvious that Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian is struggling, itís even more obvious that his offensive line is the reason for his struggles. Fans across Broncos Country have called for the removal of Trevor Siemian and while that could potential be a short-term fix to a long-term problem the issue still remains. Denverís offensive line isnít holding up.

Twenty five years ago the Broncos were shut out, and yesterday afternoon they were shut out again, surprisingly only two games short of playing the team that accomplished it, all those years back. Next week the Broncos head to Kansas City to face the top team in the Division, and quite possibly, the best team in the AFC. The Broncos then head to Philly to face the team that shut them out all those years back, when they face a red-hot Eagles team.

In other sports the Denver Nuggets are back in action with a loss in their first game of the season and win in their first game at home. The Nuggets are at home this week to face the Washington Wizards before hitting the road to Charlotte and Atlanta to face the Hornets and Hawks Wednesday night and Friday night. The Nuggets remain on the road though the weekend heading to New York to face both the Brooklyn Nets and the New York Knicks before heading back to the Pepsi Center for a six-game home stretch.
