Take a look back at the Broncos on September 29, 1963

September 29, 1963 -- In the early days of the AFL, the Broncos played the Boston Patriots twice each season. Denver won both of those games in the league’s inaugural season by a combined score of 44-34. The Broncos lost the next four meetings by a combined score of 147-86. Then, on September 29, 1963, Denver broke through for a win.


This game started out as though it was going to follow in the footsteps of the previous four meetings when the Patriots built a 10-0 lead in the third quarter. The Broncos made a game of it in the third, when Donnie Stone scored on a 1-yard run to make the deficit 10-7. A 72-yard touchdown pass from QB John McCormick to WR Lionel Taylor sealed the 14-10 victory for the Broncos. In that game, Denver overcame two interceptions by QB Mickey Slaughter by intercepting Patriots quarterbacks three times and recovering two Boston fumbles.
