#4- November 17th, 1996

The Broncos traveled to Foxboro Stadium to take on the Patriots. Both teams would end the season with 10+ wins, but the Broncos dominated this matchup from start to finish.

From the failed fourth down attempt by the Patriots, the feeling was that the Broncos were going to have their way. After a failed fake on 4th and one from the Patriots’ own 32 yard line, the Broncos took over and wasted no time as Elway and Davis connected on a 15 yard touchdown to give the Broncos a 7-0 lead.

On the very next offensive possession for the Patriots, Bledsoe was intercepted by Steve Atwater. From that point on, it just looked as if this game was going to go the Broncos way. Five plays after the interception, Davis found the end zone for the second time to extend the lead to 14-0.

In the second quarter, Davis would find the end zone for the third time on a two yard run. It would be the last time Davis would find the end zone as he rushed for 154 yards and added 56 receiving yards.

This game was perhaps well known for what Shannon Sharpe did on the sidelines. During the blowout, the Hall of Fame tight end picked up a phone on the sideline and said these famous words.

The Broncos would flex their muscles and win the game by a score of 34-8.
