FACTOIDS
John Elway's defining moment..."The Drive"
       


Bronco fans...do you remember where you were during this magical 1986 AFC Championship game?  I can personally recall the game and the excitement of waiting five hours at Stapleton Airport in Denver waiting for the Broncos plane to arrive from Cleveland - what a moment - it still gives me chills!

Below is a play-by-play recap of that cold day in Cleveland's "Dog Pound" with 92 yards to go.
