On This Day in Broncos History: October 21

Jake Roth-US PRESSWIRE

It's fun to celebrate Broncos' wins, past and present.

Oct 21, 1962 -- This was the first time that Denver ever played a game on October 21. The 5-1-0 Broncos were hosting the 4-1-0 Houston Oilers. Denver had jumped out to a 6-0 lead on a pair of Gene Mingo field goals, only to fall behind 10-6. The Broncos prevailed by scoring a pair of touchdowns in the fourth quarter -- a 3-yard pass from Frank Tripucka to Bob Scarpitto and a 20-yard run by Donnie Stone.
