On a cold day in the Mile High City, the Denver Broncos were in for a battle. And it also featured one of John Elway’s heroics.
The Colts traveled to Denver to face the Broncos in what would perhaps be the biggest games against the Colts franchise in history. The offense could not get anything going in the first three frames of the game, as the Baltimore Colts converted on three field goals from Allegre and a 40 yard bomb from Pagel to Bernard Henry to give the Colts a 16-0 lead at the half.
Another Allegre field goal put the Colts up 19-0 going into the final quarter of the game. With the offense not scoring, it figured to have a Colts win all over. But Elway was not having any of it.
In the fourth quarter, Elway would connect with three of his receivers. The first touchdown pass was a 21 yard strike to Clint Sampson to put the Broncos on the board. Later, Elway would find Jesse Myles on a 26 yard touchdown to give the Broncos a fighting chance as they trailed 19-14.
Elway would then complete the comeback as he found Gerald Wilhite for the 26 yard touchdown strike to give the Broncos their first lead of the game. The Broncos had completed the comeback and defeated the Colts 21-19.
The Broncos scored all 21 of their points in the fourth quarter. It marked yet another comeback win by the Broncos quarterback.
