On This Day in Broncos History: October 4

Relive some Elway magic from 1992.

Richard Mackson-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

October 4, 1992 -- one of many patented John Elway come back wins was played. The setting was Denver's Mile High Stadium. The Broncos were hosting division rival Kansas City. The Chiefs had built up a 19-6 lead by the late fourth quarter. Denver was struggling with the fact that the offense had not scored a touchdown in any of the previous twelve quarters (think about that one). Then the Elway magic began to happen.

Elway connected with WR Mark Jackson on a 25-yard touchdown strike to close the deficit to 16-13 with less than two minutes left in the game. Denver's defense held the Chiefs to a 3-and-out. The Broncos' special teams made the play of the game on the ensuing punt, returning it to the Kansas City 27-yard line. Three plays later, with 0:38 left on the clock, Elway connected with WR Vance Johnson for a 12-yard touchdown pass to give Denver a 20-19 come back win.
