When the players got off their bus and walked to their cars, disappointment was all over their face, until they heard the voice of Broncos Betty cheering them on.
Betty is a diehard fan with exclusive access to the team because she has been a supporter for 40 years.
"I've been here in snow, rain, hot, cold, three in the morning or in the afternoon. If they're here, I'm here," she said.
The day after the Broncos suffered a 35-point defeat, Betty was there bright and early in the cold, offering words of encouragement from her lawn chair.
"They gave us so much excitement, they brought life back into our stadium, they brought life back into Bronco fans," Betty said.
It turns out it's the Broncos that bring life to Betty. The loyal fan says it is not about winning or losing, it is about supporting the men who she considers part of her extended family.
