Take a look back at the Broncos on September 27, 1970.

September 27, 1970 -- Denver began their incredible home game sellout streak. September 27, 1970 was the date of the Broncos home opener for that season. Denver was hosting the Pittsburgh Steelers. They took an early 7-0 lead, only to fall behind 10-7 at the half. That deficit became 13-7 in the third quarter. The Broncos got back into the game when rookie LB Dave Washington sacked Steeler QB Terry Bradshaw in the end zone for a safety. Denver added a touchdown on a 38-yard pass from QB Steve Tensi to WR Billy Van Heusen to take a 16-13 lead then held on for the victory.
