The Denver Broncos, with their unmistakable fighting horse logo, is probably best known for its star quarterback John Elway who played from 1983 to 1998. Before Elway came along, the team managed to go through more than 24 different quarterbacks since its founding in 1960. Elway led the Broncos to five Super Bowl appearances, and wins in two of them, 1997 and 1998. Denver Broncos football tickets became a must have item for many Colorado fans.
In the 1997 game, Terrell Davis, a lightning fast running back, set a Super Bowl record for his three touchdowns against the Green Bay Packers, earning him that year’s Super Bowl Most Valuable Player Award. The following year Elway and Davis worked their magic again, scoring a win against the Atlanta Falcons and another MVP award, this time to Elway. Anyone with Bronco tickets to these two games witnessed history being made.
Home games are played at the Sports Authority Field at Mile High in Denver. Denver Broncos tickets are especially coveted when one of the team’s arch rivals comes to town. The Kansas City Chiefs, Oakland Raiders and San Diego Chargers first played against the Broncos in 1960, their inaugural season. When the Cleveland Browns and the New England Patriots come to town sales of Denver Broncos football tickets also increase dramatically.
The rivalry with the Raiders is notably one of the fiercest in the industry and the flames are still being fanned. One of the more controversial bits of fuel was added in 2007 when Mike Shanahan, the Broncos head coach, called a timeout right before Sebastian Janikowski finished kicking a field goal in an overtime game. On Janikowski’s second attempt, he missed the goal posts and the game continued. The Broncos ended up winning on a field goal kicked by their own Jason Elam.
Oakland got its revenge in October in 2010 when it beat the Broncos 59 to 14. The Broncos responded in January of 2012 by defeating the Raiders in a tiebreaker game, taking the AFC West title for the 2011 season. The “silver and black” going up against the “orange crush” always makes tickets for the Denver Broncos disappear and the game itself a high-energy, fiercely fought, memorable experience.
No matter what team is coming to town, it’s always best to get your Broncos tickets long before game day. Cheap Denver Bronco tickets are offered on a regular basis but hotels near Denver Broncos football games
