On This Day in Broncos History: November 10

Doug Pensinger

Remember the 1st Broncos-Colts meeting?

November 10, 1974 - Denver hosted the Baltimore Colts in the first-ever meeting between the two clubs. In that contest, the Colts out rushed the Broncos 147 yards to 133 yards. The passing yardage was totally lopsided as Baltimore out-passed Denver 211-60. So how did the Broncos manage to win 17-6?

The key to the Broncos victory came from four interceptions of Baltimore QB Marty Domres. With Denver leading 14-6 in the third quarter, Domres had the ball 2-6-DEN36. LB Randy Gradishar batted Domres' pass into the air and DE Ed Smith intercepted it. This would prove to be Smith's only interception in his career. With 8:31 left in the fourth quarter and the Broncos leading 17-6, Domres faced a 4-7-DEN26. S Billy Thompson intercepted his pass at the DEN22. At the 5:12 mark, Domres was intercepted again on 2-10-BAL48. This time Thompson snagged the ball at the DEN10. The fourth and final interception of Domres came with 0:16 left in the game and the Colts facing 3-8-DEN14. DB Maurice Tyler picked off the ball in the end zone. This would prove to be Tyler's only interception as a Bronco.
