#3- December 24th, 1977

The 1977 Denver Broncos season saw the team really excel within the NFL. Under first year head coach Red Miller, the Broncos acquired their first big season in franchise history. The team went 12-2 on the year and were going to the postseason for the first time in franchise history.

The Broncos would face the Steelers, who were known for the Steel Curtain defense that led the team to four Super Bowls in the 1970s. A tall task was ahead for the Broncos.

The Broncos would rely on the arm of Craig Morton. Even though he only had 11 completions the entire game, he would throw two touchdowns and no interceptions.

The biggest storyline of this game was the turnovers. The Broncos forced four Pittsburgh turnovers while the Broncos only gave the ball up once. Three of the four turnovers were on Terry Bradshaw interceptions.

The Broncos went on to win the game by a score of 34-21. It marked the first playoff win for the Broncos in franchise history. And it would lead to the Broncos first Super Bowl appearance.

For the final two games, it was difficult for me to pick which one would be the top game of all time. So, for the first time, I have a tie for best game. The two games are as follows…
