Not so fast, history says Broncos returning to the Super Bowl in 2015 highly unlikely

It’s one thing to get to the Super Bowl and another to actually win it – the Broncos learned that the hard way. Seattle thumped Denver 43-8 in one of the most lopsided games ever.

Getting back the following year after coming up one victory short of the Lombardi Trophy is another scenario entirely.

Since the first Super Bowl in 1967, only SEVEN teams have lost in the Super Bowl and then made it back to the big game the next season. (There are more franchises, 8, that have managed to win back-to-back championships.) The most recent of those teams being the Buffalo Bills two long decades ago.

Even more scarce is a team with the ability to recover from a defeat in the Super Bowl and then win it the next year. The 1972 Miami Dolphins are the last team to accomplish such a feat – in fact they are just one of two teams to do so.
