new show on NFL network, right now im watching browns vs broncos, 1-17-1988 i recommend people check it out.

todays players look so much bigger on every single position on the field its crazy. i dont think there is THAT bigg of a difference im sure the production quality contributes to that but still.

hahahahahaha elway punt on 4th and 1. i forgot he did that thats funny.

Please don't tell me this is the 1st time you have seen "The Fumble".

Either way at least your interested in Broncos history.

I was talking about the whole game.

You should turn on a sports channel called ESPN everynow and then, they play this series called NFL's greatest games, they did the whole game of both "the Drive" and "the Fumble" games to fill programming.

Love, Love, Love this show!


Saw The 88 AFC Chamnpionship & The Corey Dillion special in Oct. 22, 2000 when he busted off 278 yards against Greg Robinson's bend & break defense.

God Bless the NFL Network!

Here is a good link for a new football fan, especially one who didn't know that the 2nd playoff matchup between Denver and the Browns is called "The Fumble":

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NFL's_Greatest_Games

NFL's Greatest Games is a series of 90-minute television programs that have aired on ESPN and related networks. They are condensed versions of some of the most famous games in the history of the National Football League, using footage and sound captured by NFL Films, as well as original interviews.

The series began with Super Bowl III, the New York Jets' 16-7 upset of the Baltimore Colts. ESPN debuted the program in 1999, on the 30th anniversary of the original game. More telecasts followed in the ensuing months.

In 2007, NFL Network unveiled Super Bowl Classics, a version of this program using complete videotaped games.

....

1986 AFC Championship Game: Denver Broncos at Cleveland Browns ("The Drive")
1987 AFC Championship Game: Cleveland Browns at Denver Broncos ("The Fumble")
....

The 1987 AFC Championship episode is the only version to use only audio from the television commentators, in this case, NBC's Dick Enberg & Merlin Olsen.

BTW Did you know this was available?

http://www.amazon.com/NFL-Greatest-Games-Denver-Broncos/dp/B00186DF5C

It has the 1977 AFC Championship game, SB XXXII and SB XXXIII.

I know these are all before your time but you can buy the DVD and drop some knowledge on your new football buddies and actually know what your talking about for once.

youre right, ya know. talking about the 4th quarter just isnt enough gosh darnit. god forbid someone bring up a topic like this without talking about the entire game. forget the fact that i was less then 2 years old when this game actually happened, i should know everything about it. shucks.

Yep, but it's nice to see a new generation appreciate it. Too bad they couldn't experience the thrill of it when it happened though.

I remember both The Drive and The Fumble games.

I remember one thing mostly about both of these games. 20 years later I still get nervous about the outcome when watching them.

B.S. we would have just got the ball back and scored AGAIN. "the fumble" wouldnt have won the game,
only tied it.

B.S. after being up 28-10 and Byner going on a tear we didn't know if they had tied it 38-38 what would have happened with barely a minute to go. We had held them scoreless except a field goal till the third quarter where Elway was intercepted, they scored 3 TD's fairly fast. The fumble didn't win the game as we maintained the lead but it saved me from heart failure as I began to think they might do to us what we had done to them the year before.
