DENVER (FOX21) — The Wall Street Journal is making a bold prediction about this year’s Super Bowl. They think it’ll be a blowout, and it’s all because of the Broncos.

In a column in Tuesday’s paper, Michael Salfino breaks down the argument.

Read the column: “Why the Denver Broncos are Super Bowl Poison”

He writes that in the Broncos’ seven Super Bowl appearances, the winning team has scored an average of 24.3 more points than the losers. The average margin for all Super Bowls is 12.6 points.

“Only the Raiders at 22 points come close to Denver in serving up such boredom on Super Bowl Sunday,” Salfino writes.

In case you need this painful reminder: in the Broncos’ most recent Super Bowl appearance in 2014, they were blown out 43-8 by the Seattle Seahawks.
