The Denver Broncos are considered one of the best teams in the NFL. If you don’t count their first 12 seasons, they do have a pretty amazing season record. They were formed in 1960, but if you evaluate them from 1975, they have only six losing records out of 40 seasons. They have made 22 playoff appearances, they’ve won 15 AFC West or division titles, and they have won eight Conference Championships. The Broncos have subsequently made eight Super Bowl appearances and are on their way to their ninth appearance in the 2015 season against the Carolina Panthers. They’ve won two Super Bowls—in 1997 against the Green Bay Packers, 31-24, and in 1998 against the Atlanta Falcons, 34-19. Their overall record is 477 wins, 405 losses, and 10 ties.
The Broncos have had and still have extremely talented players. Their all-time passing leader is John Elway with 300 touchdowns and 51,475 yards. The all-time leading rusher is Terrell Davis with 60 touchdowns and 7,607 yards rushing. Rod Smith is their all-time receiving leader with 68 touchdowns and 11,389 yards receiving. Their all-time leading scorer is Jason Elam with 1,786 points. He also holds the record for most games played with the Broncos at 236.
