In the 2005 Divisional Playoffs against New England, Denver were ahead by 4 with time running out in the 3rd quarter, but New England was driving and looked like they would take the lead. On 3rd and goal, Denver rushed Tom Brady, who looked for the endzone but found Champ Bailey instead. Champ returned it to New England's 1-yard line, a 99 yard pick up and a 103 yard total run. The momentum shifted and Denver extended their lead and won the game.

1998 Super Bowl XXXII
Denver vs. Green Bay
31 - 24
January 25, 1998
Qualcomm Stadium, San Diego, CA
SuperBowl XXXII is considered one of the biggest upsets of all time. Denver had suffered four previous Super Bowl losses and their fifth attempt was against the defending champs Green Bay, who were favored by double digits. John Elway and Terrell Davis led the team, keeping them neck and neck with Green Bay through the 3rd quarter. With time running out in the 3rd, Denver was pinned on their own 8 yard line. Elway took them 92 yards for the touchdown and the lead. The most memorable play of the drive, and the Super Bowl, was Elway scrambling and diving for a first down, getting hit so hard that his body helicoptered in the air. "The Helicopter" was one of the defining moments of Elway's career. They had one more touchdown in the game and got their first Super Bowl win, becoming only the 2nd wild card team ever to win a Super Bowl.
1987 AFC Championship

But Denver was up to the challenge and Elway led them 98 yards for the touchdown in what is now known as "The Drive". Denver went on to win it 23-20 in overtime and advance to the Super Bowl.
