The high hopes of the Denver Broncos are growing smaller and smaller by the week.
The Broncos Season Isn't Over, It Just Feels Like It
The Broncos season isn't over just yet, but after a third straight loss, the end is looking closer than ever.

This week, it was the Raiders who just days earlier lost their head coach when Jon Gruden resigned.
