    The Drive was featured in the movie Hot Tub Time Machine, but due to the butterfly effect, Jackson was distracted by a squirrel and failed to catch the pass and Cleveland went on to win. It was inaccurately portrayed as being in 1986 (the game was played on January 11, 1987, though it was at the end of the 1986 NFL season). The movie implied that it was played at night; however, when Karlis kicked the winning field goal in OT, it was still daytime in Cleveland. Oh well....

        Hey, D! Hmm...I'm gonna guess the Simpson's episode where Homer has a gambling problem ('Bonfire of the Manatees'). They famously prophesized the Denver/Seattle Super Bowl! :thumb:

                          The Broncos vs Cowboys Super Bowl (XII) was featured in an episode of All In The Family called "Super Bowl Sunday."
                          On the show, Archie rented a big screen TV at his bar 'Archie's Place" and sold ham sandwiches for $1.50. After the game, two crooks robbed the patrons.

                          We also got robbed....of a victory!!

                          • Today’s trivia...........

                            Random fact of the day​​​​

                            The Denver rushing game produced more 100-yard rushers in the 1990s as the franchise had in the previous three decades combined. In fact, one rusher -- Terrell Davis -- exploded onto the scene and logged over three times as many 100-yard games as the entire franchise did in the 1960s. He had almost 50% more 100-yard games than the entire franchise in the 1970s. Davis more than doubled the number of 100-yard rushers than the entire franchise produced in the 1980s.

                            Random quote of the day

                            “I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.”

                            ― Albert Einstein

                            This month in Broncos history ​​

                                WINNER!

                                The Broncos have only lead the NFL in Total Defense once in their history, in 2015. During that memorable season, The D only allowed 283.1 yards per game. Included on that total was a league leading 199.6 yards per game against the pass, and #3 against the run, with only 83.6 yards per game.

                                Of course that was also the season that The Broncos won their 3rd Super Bowl, which was highly related to their incredible Defense, lead by Von Miller!
