On This Day in Broncos History: October 20

Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE

How Long Was Terrell Davis' Longest Run From Scrimmage?

October 20, 1996 -- You may recall that in 1996, the Cleveland Browns then-owner Art Modell moved his franchise from Cleveland to Baltimore. The team was subsequently renamed the Ravens and played their first season as the Baltimore Ravens in 1996. Denver hosted that fledgling Ravens team on October 20, 1996. The Broncos quickly jumped out to a 14-0 lead in the first quarter on scores by Ed McCaffrey (4-yard pass from John Elway) and Terrell Davis (71-yard run) and then won a hard-fought game 45-34.

This game was Davis’ 21st game in the NFL. His 71-yard touchdown run in that game would prove to be his longest run from scrimmage in his seven-year career. Those 71 yards were more yards on a single run than he had gained in an entire game in 9 of his previous 20 games. It also represented the 12th touchdown of his career to that date.
