    I believe I know this one, but I am going to leave it for someone else. We have had a few very good Broncos wear
    that # throughout the years, although he was the first. It has been very good to us.

      To what many refer to as Denver's "Golden Years" -- the 1990s. Seven seasons at (or above) .500. Four division titles, five playoff appearances and one AFC Championship game loss to go along with what became QB John Elway's crowning achievement: back-to-back Super Bowl wins.

        Since you said consecutive, I’d have to guess 1997-1998?

        Starting with St. Louis early in the 97 season, no wait they lost to San Fran that year.

        Ok from the super bowl against the Green Bay packers and through the 98 season when Elway and Davis ravaged the eagles, redskins, refskins, Cowboys up until the Giants ended to the perfect season record that December?

              Ok then I’m going to say from 2012 until 2013. It seemed like they beat everyone between those two seasons until Seattle in the super bowl.

              I’m guessing That dominance over the NFC came consecutively between those two seasons up until Super Bowl 48.

                        WINNER!!!

                        Over the course of the 2012 and 2013 seasons, The Broncos beat NFC teams 7 consecutive times, as follows:

                        2012: Oct. 28th - New Orleans, Nov. 11th - Carolina, Dec. 2nd - Tampa Bay
                        2013: Sep. 15th - New York Giants, Sep. 29th - Philadelphia, Oct. 6th - Dallas, Oct. 27th - Washington

                        The streak came to an end the following season, with an overtime loss to Seattle.




                        As an aside, we vacationed in Denver, and were fortunate to see the Philadelphia game. It was a great trip!!!!

                        • Another quick one:

                          In 1964, this future established actor had signed a free agent contract with the Broncos, but because he could not run the 40 yard dash due to a hamstring, was released on the second day of training camp. He went on to the play in the CFL and UFL.
