The Broncos won the first-ever American Football League game over the New England Patriots, 13-10, on September 9, 1960. On August 5, 1967, they became the second AFL team to defeat an NFL team after beating the Detroit Lions, 13-7, in a preseason game.

Denver has reached the Super Bowl six times, winning it in the 1997 and 1998 seasons. It is odd to remember a time, then, when Denver was the lowliest of teams, managing its first winning season in 1973 after thirteen years of futility. As such, they were the only original AFL team never to have played in the title game during the upstart league's 10-year history. Denver, in fact, came close to losing its franchise in 1965, but a local ownership group took control that year and began to build the team. For the band, see 1997 (band). ...

Quarterback John Elway arrived in 1983. Originally drafted by the Baltimore Colts as the first pick of the draft, Elway proclaimed that he would shun football in favor of baseball (he was drafted by the New York Yankees to play center field and was also a pitching prospect), unless he was traded to a selected list of other teams, which included Denver. Prior to Elway, Denver had over 24 different starting quarterbacks in its 23 seasons to that point. Elway would remain the quarterback through five Super Bowls, three under head coach Dan Reeves and two under Mike Shanahan. He would also end his career as the MVP of Super Bowl XXXIII, his last NFL game. The Broncos lost Super Bowl XXI to the New York Giants, 39-20; Super Bowl XXII to the Washington Redskins, 42-10; and Super Bowl XXIV to the San Francisco 49ers, 55-10, the most lopsided scoring differential in Super Bowl history.

In 1995, the Broncos debuted rookie running back Terrell Davis, who, in 1997, would lead the Broncos to their first Super Bowl victory, in Super Bowl XXXII, over the Green Bay Packers, 31-24. Although Elway completed only 12 of his 22 passing attempts, throwing one interception and no touchdowns, Davis rushed for 157 yards and three touchdowns to earn MVP honors - this while overcoming a severe migraine headache that caused him blurred vision.[2] Terrell Lamar Davis (born October 28, 1972 in San Diego, California) is a former American football running back who played for the Denver Broncos of the National Football League from 1995 to 2001. ...

The Broncos repeated the following year, defeating the Atlanta Falcons (led by Dan Reeves), 34-19, to win Super Bowl XXXIII. Since Elway's retirement following the 1999 season, Denver has only had two losing seasons (1999, 2007). The team has made the playoffs as a wild card three times (in 2000, 2003 and 2004) and as a division champion once (2005). However, the Broncos have won only one playoff game since Elway's retirement. Prior to the 2005 season, they were plagued by late-season flops following early-season success. In both 2003 and 2004, they started the season 5-1 and ended 10-6. In 2005, the Broncos would have a much-improved season, going 13-3 and earning a bye week in the playoffs with the #2 seed in the AFC. They would finally win a playoff game without Elway, defeating the defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots, 27-13, ending the Patriots' 10-game playoff winning streak. The following weekend, the Broncos hosted the AFC Championship and were defeated by the visiting Pittsburgh Steelers, 34-17.

In the years since Elway's retirement, it has become obvious that the Denver fans and media expect Elway-like perfection from the quarterback position. Both Brian Griese and Jake Plummer have faced severe scrutiny in attempting to replace Elway as the team’s quarterback. Elway’s jersey remains the most frequently worn at Invesco Field at Mile High, with the crowd generally voicing their loudest ovations when his name is mentioned or shown. Many members of the media have run stories and articles on the pressures that come with playing quarterback in Denver, as most fans believe no player will ever live up the standard set by Elway. Brian David Griese (born March 18, 1975 in Miami, Florida) is an American football quarterback for the Chicago Bears of the NFL. He is the son of former NFL great Bob Griese of the Miami Dolphins. ... Jason Plummer redirects here. ... INVESCO Field at Mile High is a stadium in Denver, Colorado. ...


Elway’s overwhelming popularity in Colorado is generally attributed to a number of factors, including the extensive length of time spent on the team at the league’s premier position, his leading of 4th quarter comebacks (Elway ranks 1st in NFL history), his community work throughout the state and retiring directly after two Super Bowl wins (the last of which being his final game in which he was Super Bowl MVP).

After losing their first game 34-10 to the Miami Dolphins on September 11, the Broncos won 5 straight games, defeating the San Diego Chargers 20-17, the Kansas City Chiefs 30-10, the Jacksonville Jaguars 20-7, the Washington Redskins 21-19, and the two-time defending champion New England Patriots 28-20 on October 16 before losing to the New York Giants on October 23 by a final score of 24-23. They then beat the defending NFC champion Philadelphia Eagles 49-21 on October 30. In that game, the Broncos became the first team in NFL history to have two players, Mike Anderson and Tatum Bell, rush for over 100 yards and another player, Jake Plummer, pass for over 300 yards in a single game. They then beat the Oakland Raiders on November 13 31-17. They beat the New York Jets on November 20 27-0. It was the first time the Broncos had shut out a team at home since the Carolina Panthers on November 9, 1997. They played the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving day, November 24, winning a very hard fought game in overtime 24-21. The key play that led to Jason Elam's 24-yard game winning field goal was a 55 yard run by Ron Dayne who filled in for the injured Tatum Bell. They lost to the Chiefs 31-27 on December 4, but defeated the Baltimore Ravens the following week 12-10. On December 17, the Broncos defeated the Buffalo Bills 28-17. On Christmas Eve 2005, the Denver Broncos clinched the AFC West division title as they finished 8-0 at Invesco Field beating the Oakland Raiders 22-3. On December 31, 2005, the Broncos got win number 13 by going on the road and sweeping their division rivals, the Chargers, with a final score of 23-7. In 2005 the Denver Broncos ended the 2005 regular season with a 13-3 record, the franchises second-best number of wins of all time and their third best win percentage ever. ...

The Broncos entered their third consecutive year in the playoffs with the momentum of a four game winning streak. With a record of 13-3, they were tied with the Seattle Seahawks for second overall in the league, behind the 14-2 Indianapolis Colts. They were seeded number two in the AFC behind the Colts. On January 14, 2006, the Broncos defeated the two-time defending champions, the New England Patriots, 27-13, ending the Patriots chance of becoming the first NFL team ever to win three consecutive Super Bowl championships. The last team with a chance of winning three consecutive Super Bowls before the Patriots were the Broncos themselves. The Broncos' run came to an end by losing to the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC Championship 34-17 on January 22, 2006. Their strength of controlling the ball collapsed with 4 turnovers. They were outscored in the first half 24-3 and were not able to come from behind to win in the second half. The Steelers went on to win Super Bowl XL.

In 2006, the Denver Broncos had high hopes among the league in being able to compete for the Super Bowl title. The Broncos defense started off the first five games of the season allowing only one touchdown, an NFL record, but struggled down the season stretch. Jake Plummer, the starting quarterback at the season's inception, led the team to a 7-2 record only to lose 2 straight and be replaced by rookie quarterback Jay Cutler, drafted in the first round out of Vanderbilt University.

The most impressive win was in an away game over the Arizona Cardinals on December 17, 2006.[4] During the game, Cutler launched a 68-yard touchdown to Javon Walker on the third play from scrimmage.

The Shanahan era

The team's current head coach is Mike Shanahan, a position he's held since 1995. Since the Shanahan era began, the Broncos have been known for having high-yardage running backs, and explosive offenses. Tuesday Morning Quarterback writer Gregg Easterbrook once mused that Denver’s helmets should have a label that says "Insert running back, gain 1,000 yards." To wit: Terrell Davis, Olandis Gary, Mike Anderson, Clinton Portis, Reuben Droughns and Tatum Bell have all posted 1000-yard rushing seasons in Denver with Davis shattering the 2,000 yard barrier in 1998. In 2005, Mike Anderson rushed for more than 1,000 yards for the first time in five seasons. Anderson's backfield mate, Tatum Bell, fell 79 yards short of 1,000 with 921 while missing a game to injury. Had Bell been able to gain 1,000 yards he and Anderson would have been the first two running backs in over 20 years to break 1,000 yards in a single season on the same team.

In the post-Elway years, Shanahan has taken the Broncos to the playoffs several times. The 2000 season ended with a Wild Card loss at the Baltimore Ravens. The 2003 and 2004 seasons ended with lopsided losses at the Indianapolis Colts, also in the Wild Card round. In the 2005 season, the Broncos defeated the New England Patriots in the divisional round and advanced to the AFC Championship game, losing at home to the Pittsburgh Steelers.


Logos and uniforms

Broncos logo (1968-1996). The horse in this logo continues to be used at the stadium today.[citation needed]
Broncos Alternate logo (1997-Present)

When the Broncos debuted in 1960, their original uniforms were vilified by the public. It consisted of brown helmets, brown pants (some had a satin sheen, some didn't), white and mustard yellow jerseys, and vertically striped socks. The club eventually got rid of these jerseys two years later, and celebrated the occasion by holding a public bonfire to burn the striped socks.

The team then unveiled a new logo featuring a bucking horse, and changed their team colors to orange, blue, and white. The 1962 uniform designed by Laura North-Allen, consisted of white pants, orange helmets, and either orange or white jerseys.


In 1968, the Broncos debuted a design that became known as the "Orange Crush". Their logo was redesigned so that the horse was coming out of a "D". Also, the helmets were changed to blue, thin stripes were put onto the sleeves, and other minor modifications were added. From 1969 to 1971, and again from 1978 to 1979), the team wore orange pants with their white jerseys.


The club then radically changed their logo and uniforms in 1997, a design that they continue to use to this day. The current logo is a profile of a horse's head. They wear "Broncos Navy Blue" jerseys instead of orange ones. This new uniform design also features a streak that runs down the sides of both the jerseys and the pants; it's orange on the blue jerseys and blue on the white jerseys. When they debuted, these uniforms were vilified by the press and fans, until the Broncos won their first ever Super Bowl in the new design. The team also introduced blue pants with orange stripes to be worn with blue jerseys. These pants are primarily worn for prime-time home games. An oddity of their pants are that the home white pants have an orange stripe, but the road white pants have a navy blue stripe.


The Broncos have also introduced an alternate orange jersey with a navy blue stripe going up the side. The jerseys were first used in 2002 against the Indianapolis Colts and last used in the 2004 game against the Oakland Raiders in the downpour of snow. Many believe that the jersey is only to be used in the snow, such as the 2002 and 2004 games. Owner Pat Bowlen has frequently said he would like to see the Broncos in orange once a year, however, the Broncos have not worn these jerseys since the 2004 season, and the Broncos have never won a game while wearing these jerseys.


Home field

For most of their history they played in Mile High Stadium, which became one of the shrines of professional football for its record ongoing streak of sell-outs. The team has sold out every home game since the NFL merger in 1970, with the exception of two replacement games during the 1987 strike (but both were sold out before the strike), for a total of 309 games, including post-seasons. The stadium's legendary home-field advantage is regarded as one of the best in the NFL, especially during the post-season. The Broncos have had the best home record in pro football over the past 32 years (1974-2006, 191-65-1). Mile High Stadium was one of the NFL's loudest stadiums, with steel flooring instead of concrete, which may have given the Broncos an advantage over opponents. Since 2001, they have played at Invesco Field at Mile High, built next to the former site of the since demolished old Mile High Stadium. Sportswriter Woody Paige, along with many of Denver's fans, however, often refuse to call the new stadium by its full name, preferring to use Mile High Stadium because of its storied history and sentimental import. Additionally the Denver Post had an official policy of referring to the stadium as simply "Mile High Stadium" in protest, but dropped this policy in 2004. Mile High Stadium (known as Bears Stadium until 1968) was a baseball, soccer and football stadium that stood in Denver, Colorado from 1948-2001. ...

The Colorado altitude has also been attributed as part of the team's home success. The stadium displays multiple references to the stadium's location of 5,280 ft. (1 mile) above sea level, including a prominent mural just outside the visiting team’s locker room. Many believe the physical and mental aspects of competing athletically with less air to breathe affects the performance of visiting teams.

Trivia

  • The Broncos currently hold the best post AFL-NFL merger season record for a team that did not make the playoffs that year. Their 1985 team went 11-5, but lost out in tiebreakers for the last wild card spot. Meanwhile, the Cleveland Browns that same year finished 8-8, but since they won the AFC Central division, they got an automatic spot in the playoffs.
  • In The Simpsons episode You Only Move Twice, Hank Scorpio gives Homer Simpson the Denver Broncos as a thank-you gift for helping him. Homer complained that he wanted to own the Dallas Cowboys (the Broncos are playing very sloppy football on his front lawn while he complains). Incidentally, the Broncos won the Super Bowl the next 2 seasons. In another episode, Homer picks the Broncos to win the Super Bowl.
  • The animated television show South Park, set in Park County, Colorado, often mentions the Denver Broncos; show creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone both grew up in Colorado as devout Bronco fans.
  • The Broncos are the only franchise to have played in a Super Bowl televised by each network (CBS, NBC, ABC, FOX).
  • The Broncos established a tradition in 1996 where the offensive linemen do not talk with the media as a form of bonding.[7] This was evident during the player introductions for the starting lineup on nationally-televised prime time games as the linemen would not introduce themselves. How they were introduced has varied over the years as sometimes, another offensive player introduces them and during other times, the announcers introduce the offensive linemen. Due to a rule change within the NFL in 2007, this tradition came to an end. For the 2007 season each player is required to make themselves available for media interviews. On a Sunday Night Football game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, the linemen introduced themselves.
  • John Amos was a Golden Gloves boxing champion and was drafted by the Denver Broncos.
