The Denver Broncos and their fans have plenty to be excited about going into the 2020 season. After selecting Jerry Jeudy and KJ Hamler in the first two rounds of the NFL Draft, and signing star running back Melvin Gordon in free agency, Denver's offense around second-year starting quarterback Drew Lock is built to win now and for the future.

While Denver is looking to snap its streak of four straight years missing out on the playoffs, one streak for the Broncos is alive and well in 2020, and it is now an NFL record.

Following the release of the NFL schedule, with the Broncos Week 1 game against the Tennessee Titans, the Broncos will appear on Monday Night Football for the 29th consecutive year, making it an NFL record.

While every team has a chance to play on Monday Night Football at least once per season now, that's not always how it was. While this record won't have any bearing on the team's record this year, it is a cool stat that shows the relevance of the franchise over that time period, especially in the early years.
