The Denver Broncos are in the middle of the NFL’s longest active winning streak, winning five consecutive games to bring them back into the playoff conversation. However, just as they started to get back on track, they face a pretty brutal situation with three consecutive road games. But Sean Payton doesn’t sound all that concerned about it.

During his press conference this week, Sean Payton reacted to the brutal situation ahead for his team, revealing that he doesn’t think it’s all that big of a deal.

“It kind of is what it is,” Payton told reporters on Wednesday. “When the season [schedule] comes out, you look at where you’re playing some teams. We have played a number of home games, and you really just are looking at this week. I do know of the remaining six [games], the four away are all inside and the other two are here outside. I don’t think there’s anything different relative to playing on the road versus home or for three games. It’s not a big deal.”

Still, it’s not great news for the Broncos that they have three consecutive road games with four of their last six games on the road, and it led to a lot of reactions on social media.

That road stretch begins this weekend when they travel to Houston to take on the Texans, followed by road games against the Los Angeles Chargers and the Detroit Lions. We’ll have to see how the team response to the adversity – even if Payton doesn’t seem to think it’s a big deal.
