The Broncos enter the postseason with an 18-16 (.529) all-time record in playoff games. In Divisional Playoff Games, Denver is 8-4 (.667), including a 7-2 mark at home and a 1-2 record away.

The Broncos earned the AFC’s No. 1 seed and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs for the sixth time in franchise history in 2012. Denver’s 13 wins tied for the 2nd-most victories in team annals and the most since posting a 13-3 record during the 2005 season. The Broncos advanced to the Super Bowl in four of the previous five times they earned the conference’s No. 1 seed.

SEASONS EARNING THE AFC NO. 1 SEED, BRONCOS HISTORY

Year Record Coach Postseason (Rec.)
1977 12-2 Red Miller Super Bowl (2-1)
1987 10-4-1 Dan Reeves Super Bowl (2-1)
1989 11-5 Dan Reeves Super Bowl (2-1)
1996 13-3 Mike Shanahan Playoffs (0-1)
1998 14-2 Mike Shanahan AB Champs (3-0)

BRONCOS FINISH WITH PERFECT DIVISIONAL RECORD
The Broncos finished the season with their 2nd-ever perfect record (6-0) in the division. The only other time Denver went undefeated in AFC West play was during its 1998 Super Bowl season (8-0).

Hmm. The Broncos finish 2012 with a 13-3 record, their All-time Home Playoff record is 13-3 and the last time they swept the AFC West Division, they won the Super Bowl. Sounds like the "Mile High Magic" is back.

Go Broncos!
