Broncos, Briefly: Thursday, Dec. 26, 2019

Professional sports teams are always aiming to improve the home-game experience for their thousands of fans. In Denver, the Broncos are making a more concerted effort to reach their fans through technology.

In the Broncos' first six games, wide receiver Courtland Sutton drew only one penalty: a 9-yard pass interference call on Chicago cornerback Prince Amukamara in Week 2.

But entering Sunday's season finale against Oakland, Sutton has drawn at least one penalty in nine consecutive games (12 enforced penalties total).

Hidden inside this Broncos season, which closes Sunday against the Raiders at Mile High, is a beautiful success story. It's Diontae Spencer graduating from four seasons in the Canadian Football League to earning a spot as an alternate for the NFL's Pro Bowl. It's a 27-year-old climbing the football ladder — from McNeese State to undrafted free agent to the CFL to the Broncos, who finally found their return man.

After changing his head coach or starting quarterback each of the past five winters, John Elway seems to have finally hit on rookies Vic Fangio and Drew Lock.
