Default On this day in history...

One of the most famous, if not THE most famous, Broncos games was played and won. Growing up in Florida, I still wonder how I got hooked on the Broncos. But with my mom originally from Cleveland, I can still remember running into the other room with a homemade noose around a stuffed animal dog when the Broncos tied the game to take things to overtime...and ultimately winning. Happy Anniversary OrangeMane!

Winder was huge on that drive. 3 carries 8 yards 1 rec for 5. :rolls eyes:



"The Drive" as it ensued:
Play No. 1 - First and 10, Denver 2-yard line. Elway faked a handoff to Gerald Willhite, then passed to Sammy Winder for five yards.


Play No. 2 - Second and 5, Denver 7-yard line. Winder, on a pitchout, ran for three yards.


Play No. 3 - Third and 2, Denver 10-yard line. Denver calls time out. Winder ran over left guard for two-yard gain and a first down.


Play No. 4 - First and 10, Denver 12-yard line. Winder carried over left tackle for three yards.


Play No. 5 - Second and seven, Denver 15-yard line. Forced out of the pocket, Elway scrambled for 11 yards and a first down on the Denver 26.


Play No. 6 - First and ten, Denver 26-yard line. Elway completed 22-yard pass to Steve Sewell for a first down on the Denver 48.


Play No. 7 - First and ten, Denver 48-yard line. Elway completed pass to Steve Watson for a 12-yard gain and a first down at the Cleveland 40.


Two-minute warning

Play No. 8 - First and ten, Cleveland 40-yard line (1:59 remaining).
Elway's pass intended for Vance Johnson is incomplete.


Play No. 9 - Second and ten, Cleveland 40-yard line (1:52 remaining).
Elway sacked for 8-yard loss by Dave Puzzuoli.


Play No. 10 - Third and 18, Cleveland 48-yard line (1:47 remaining).
Elway completed pass to Jackson for 20-yard gain and first down to the Cleveland 28.


Play No. 11 - First and 10, Cleveland 28-yard line (1:19 remaining).

Play No. 12 - Second and 10, Cleveland 28-yard line (1:10 remaining).

Play No. 13 - First and ten, Cleveland 14-yard line (:57 remaining).

Play No. 14 - Second and 10, Cleveland 14-yard line (:42 remaining).
Elway flushed from the pocket and ran nine yards to the Cleveland 5.


Play No. 15 - Third and one, Cleveland 5-yard line (:39 remaining).
Elway went to the air for the ninth time in the drive and hit Jackson for the tying touchdown. Rich Karlis adds PAT.

Dan Reeves was so intense he drove the team to victory. Dan Reeves is one of the most intense head coaches I've ever seen. The Broncos never would have gone to all those Super Bowls without Dan Reeves, that was one intense dude on gameday.

Reeves also through sheer force of will took the NY Giants and the Atlanta Falcons to the brink of glory.
