Denver Broncos vs. Green Bay Packers
The Broncos and Packers play in opposite conferences, so meetings between the two teams are rare. Still, the teams are two of the biggest names in football, and matchups between them draw widespread interest.
Super Bowl XXXII was the game that drew attention to matchups between Denver and Green Bay. Both teams went into the game with a future hall-of-fame quarterback: the Broncos had John Elway, and the Packers had Brett Favre. Though the Packers were the favorites by a large margin, the Broncos pulled off the upset and won their first Super Bowl.
The Broncos of today have built one of the best defenses in the NFL, and they won Super Bowl 50 after the 2015 NFL Season. The championship win was legendary quarterback Peyton Manning’s last hurrah in the NFL. Manning’s retirement has left the Broncos with a hole to fill at quarterback, and the team is still waiting for a suitable replacement. Denver’s defense, however, can be good enough to carry the team.
Brett Favre led the Packers to a Super Bowl victory in after the 1996 season, and they returned to the NFL’s title game to face the Broncos after the next season. After Favre left Green Bay, the Packers moved on to another top-level quarterback. Rookie Aaron Rodgers took over for the Packers in 2008 and has been the QB in Green Bay ever since. Rodgers led the Packers to a Super Bowl win over the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2010.
Historic Broncos vs. Packers Games
Super Bowl XXXII: It was close to the end of John Elway’s career, and the legendary Bronco’s quarterback had appeared in three Super Bowls without a victory. The Packers had won Super Bowl XXXI the previous year and oddsmakers expected a repeat championship for Green Bay. Broncos running back Terrell Davis was the MVP of the game even though a migraine headache kept him sidelined for most of the second quarter. Davis factored into a touchdown play for the Broncos even though he claimed he couldn’t see because of the migraine. Elway faked a handoff to Davis and ran in for the score; the Broncos didn’t think the Packers would fall for the fake handoff if Davis wasn’t on the field. The game is also known for a leaping run by 37 year-old John Elway, who took a hard hit to get a late first down. Elway and the Broncos finally won their first Super Bowl by a score of 31-24. Elway returned the next year for one last season, and the Broncos repeated as champions.
