September 10, 2001 - The Broncos played their first game in the newly built Invesco Field at Mile High. Denver was hosting the defending NFC Champion New York Giants in the season opener for both teams on Monday Night Football.

The game was a see-saw battle in which the Broncos would take a lead, then the Giants would tie the score. This went on into the third quarter. Late in the third quarter and into the fourth quarter, the Broncos scored seventeen unanswered points to take a 31-14 lead which they never relinquished -- the final score standing at 31-20. It was also a bitter sweet game as it saw the return of MVP running back Terrell Davis, but also saw the loss of fan-favorite wide receiver Ed McCaffrey to a broken leg.

Bronco Birthdays: Marlin Briscoe (1968) is 67. Keith Kidd is 50. (Fast fact - Keith played one game for the Minnesota Vikings in 1987).
