Football fans have become enthusiastic about “scorigamis” in recent seasons — final scores that have never happened before in NFL history. The concept was thought up and popularized by Jon Bois and it is now tracked weekly each season.
As NFL blogger Samson T. Beard has pointed out, only three Super Bowls have had a “scorigami” — a unique score in NFL history — and the Denver Broncos were involved in all three. (Trigger warning ahead.)
The first Super Bowl scorigami happened in 1987 when the New York Giants defeated the Broncos 39-20 in Super Bowl XXI. It gets worse.
The second Super Bowl scorigami happened in 1990 when the San Francisco 49ers defeated the Broncos 55-10 in Super Bowl XXIV.
The third and most recent Super Bowl scorigami happened in 2014 when the Seattle Seahawks defeated the Broncos 43-8 in Super Bowl XLVIII.
That’s some NFL trivia fans in Denver would like to forget.
The Broncos were on the winning side of a scorigami when they defeated the Cleveland Browns 29-12 in November. Unfortunately, Denver’s 70-20 loss to the Miami Dolphins in September was also a scorigami. You can’t win ’em all — just ask the Broncos.
