A Day Elway's Never Lost On

On This Day in Broncos History: November 5

November 5 -- Did you know that John Elway never lost a game played for the Broncos on November 5? Admittedly, he only played on that date twice (1989 and 1995) but he went 2-0 in those games and the Broncos outscored their opponents 72-13.

In 1989, the Broncos hosted the Pittsburgh Steelers. Elway completed 16 of 23 passes for 291 yards with a touchdown and an interception. The interceptions both came in the second quarter, one killing an Denver drive, the other leading to a Pittsburgh touchdown. Elway's touchdown pass was a 44-yard pass to Vance Johnson which made the score 20-7. Elway added a 2-yard rushing touchdown to make the score 27-7. The Broncos won the game 34-7.

In 1995, Arizona visited Denver and saw Elway lead the Broncos to a 38-6 victory. In that game, Elway completed 17 of 22 passes for 268 yards and 3 touchdowns. His first TD pass (1 yard to Aaron Carver) came in the second quarter and made the score 21-3. Elway's other two TD passes (47 yards to Anthony Miller and 23 yards to Ed McCaffrey) came in the fourth quarter and made the score 31-6, then 38-6.
