By shutting out the Jets, the Broncos just did something they hadn’t since 1992 – The Denver Post

An NFL defense posting a shutout is a rare feat. In 57 years of professional football in Denver, the Broncos have done it only 17 times — including Sunday’s 23-0 victory over the New York Jets. This is marks the first time since 1992 the Broncos have been shut out by (21-0 loss at the Chargers on Oct. 22) and shut out an opponent in the same season.

In that 1992 season, the Broncos shut out the Cleveland Browns 12-0 and lost 24-0 to the Los Angeles Raiders.

Here’s a look at the last 10 Broncos shutouts:

Date Opponent Score
Dec. 10, 2017 Jets 23-0
Nov. 20, 2005 Jets 27-0
Nov. 9, 1997 Panthers 34-0
Sept. 27, 1992 Browns 12-0
Dec. 16, 1989 Cardinals 37-0
Oct. 2, 1988 Chargers 12-0
Dec. 27, 1987 Chargers 24-0
Nov. 1, 1987 Lions 34-0
Sept. 23, 1984 Chiefs 21-0
Oct. 4, 1981 Raiders 17-0
