31. 124. 35. 45. Final

With their 12-0 undefeated record on the line, the Broncos welcomed the Chiefs to Mile High Stadium. It was perhaps one of my favorite memories of all time between these two teams.

The Chiefs and Rich Gannon got off to a 21-7 lead in the first quarter. This alarmed quite a few Broncos fans, but no need for concern. During the second quarter, Terrell Davis found the end zone for the second time in the game and a John Elway pass to Ed McCaffrey for a touchdown tied the game up at 21 going into the half.

The Broncos were looking to take the lead in the third quarter. However, a rare Terrell Davis fumble at the goal line turned the tide for the moment and gave the Chiefs possession. They would score a touchdown on that drive to make it 28-21. They would later in the fourth tack on a field goal. And with 8:25 remaining in the game, the Broncos found themselves down 31-21.

John Elway would have to master his final fourth quarter comeback of his career. He began very quickly as the Broncos scored just under two minutes after the field goal on a Terrell Davis one yard run that was set up by a 50 yard pass from Elway to Willie Green.

The Chiefs would be forced to punt on their next drive and Elway went at it again, this time with great field position at midfield. The comeback was complete when Elway found Shannon Sharpe for a 24 yard touchdown pass that gave the Broncos a 35-31 lead with over 3:30 remaining in the game.

The Chiefs attempted a furious comeback, but just as the two minute warning arrived, Gannon was sacked on fourth down by Alfred Williams. That gave the Broncos the ball after the warning and allowed Elway to run the clock out as the Chiefs did not have any timeouts left.

The win moved the Broncos to their best start in team history at 13-0. Sad enough, they would lose their next two games. But still ended up with their second Super Bowl title.
