On This Day in Broncos History: November 2

Doug Pensinger

Remembering a Super Bowl run is fun.

November 2, 1997 - On this day, the 7-1-0 Broncos hosted the 5-3-0 Seattle Seahawks as part of their phenomenal run that ended with a victory in Super Bowl XXXII. Denver had romped 35-14 in the first meeting between these division rivals. This time, the two teams proved to be more evenly matched.

The Broncos jumped out to a 13-3 lead in the 2nd quarter on the strength of two Jason Elam field goals and an Elway to Willie Green touchdown pass. They went into the locker room with a 13-10 lead. Darrius Johnson returned a Seattle fumble 6 yards for a touchdown to extend the score to 20-10 in the 3rd quarter. The Seahawks tied the score at 20-20 in the 3rd quarter, but Denver regained the lead on a 59-yard Elway to Rod Smith touchdown pass. Seattle’s drive that ended the 3rd quarter and began the 4th tied the game again at 27-27. Jason Elam gave Denver a lead they would not relinquish by kicking a 22-yard field goal with 7:28 left in the game. After an exchange of punts, the Seahawks drove from their own 20-yard line to their 45-yard line. On 4-4-SEA45, Warren Moon’s pass in the direction of Joey Galloway was deflected at the line of scrimmage and fell incomplete. Elway ran out the clock with two kneel-downs.
