Name something that makes LB Randy Gradishar special.

October 5, 1980 - A Denver Broncos franchise record was set on this date. The 1-3-0 Broncos were hosting the 2-2-0 Cleveland Browns. The Browns were leading 10-6 in the second quarter and were driving for another score when Denver LB Randy Gradishar intercepted Cleveland QB Brian Sipe in at the Denver 7-yard line. Gradishar returned the interception 93 yards for a touchdown and a 13-10 Broncos lead. Denver went on to win the game 19-16. That interception still stands today as the longest interception return for a touchdown by a Bronco.
